To get big hair, the magazine (I think it was Glamour) suggested boosting hair by doing the following:
- Add volume, carefully. Instead of making hair wider or higher, pick just one. They suggest going with wider hair if your face is long; higher hair if your face is round.
- Add width by making spirals with a curing iron, working from the bottom layers up. Follow this by fingercombing and letting top hair fall flat.
- Add height by teasing the crown area with a fine-toothed comb. Smooth out the front up and over the teased section--pin the sides back and spray.
So: what do you think of the big hair trend? Is it something you would try out? Or do you think it looks ridiculous? Here's my take: I prefer the high look over the wide look, but I don't think I could personally rock either look. Big hair can look cool on the catwalk and if done right for an event, but for every day? Meh. It's too fussy.
