6 hair hacks for bouncy hair

The methods to get bouncy hair if you’re mane’s on the shorter side are a little different to ladies and gents with longer tresses. There are a few more techniques for long bouncy hair, simply because there’s more to work with. But no matter which bucket you fall into, try these hair hacks to get voluminous roots and bouncy lengths:

1. Flip your part. Bouncy hair can be as easy as flipping your part. This is a great way to add the appearance of layers, giving a little more body to one side and lift at the roots.
2. Hot rollers. Curls are a great way to give hair that bouncy look, so try using hot rollers to add layers and movement to your style. Secure the look in place with a loose-hold hairspray (cue Aussie’ Uplift your Hair Hairspray) for free-flowing tresses that bounce.
3. Layers. Layers can add the appearance of volume, so if your hair’s on the thinner side, it’s a great hair hack to get you closer to the bouncy hair you’re after. Just ask your hairdresser next time.
4. Blow dry. We’ve all been there, fresh out of the hair salon with washed, treated and blow-dried tresses. The bounce achieved is second to none. So, if you’re in need of bouncy hair for a special occasion or weekend outing, style hair with a blow dryer and work in a wave to give hair that bouncy look.
5. Get a trim. Healthy hair’s key to bounce, so commit to tidying those ends with a trim to rid those locks of split ends. You might prevent split ends with regular deep treatments such as Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Treatment – worth a try!
6. Style right. Bouncy hair doesn’t have to be styled down, you can achieve bounce with a ponytail as well. So, if you have the length, try for a high pony and work a little oil into ends for that glossy finish and smooth ends.

And there you have it, bouncy hair with minimal effort – it’s the A-beauty way! For more tips on how to get volume in hair or Aussie hair hacks, take a look at our handy little guides.
