    How to Add Volume to Short Hair

    If you’ve got fine, short hair, you may find that your hair tends to get a little flat. Some styles work extremely well for this type of hair. Straight, fine hair is ideal for sleek pixies, short French bobs and even short mullets. Short hair gets a bit harder when you want to play around with waves and other styles that need more volume, however.

    Adding Volume to Short Hair

    You can add volume to your short hair with the help of these styling aids:


    When you think of gel and pixies, you will often think of sticky, spiky hair.Gels these days help to give you sleek locks that are lifted without being weighted down with heavy product. There are some great gels available in the Retail Box store. Try theRedken High Rise Volume Duo Volumizer - a gel cream that lifts and holds. TheHannon Liquid Crystal Styling Gel adds curl definition and can be used for drying, scrunching and wet looks. 


    Wax is a great choice for super short styles. It can create body and texture. You’ll be able to add waves and play around with styles. You will also be able to easily manage flyaways and wispy bits that increase the risk of frizz. There are a few different wax products to try. We suggest theRedken Wax Blast 10 for a spray-on wax that is lightweight and easy to use or theHannon Polish Wax that creates definition, adds shine and builds volume.


    A goodhairspray is essential for every type of hair type, style and length. For short, fine hair, hairspray can add plenty of lift. You can use it alongside styling tools to lift from the roots. Sprays are used after styling to lock the style in place. They will add more shine to the hair and avoid your hair from going flat too quickly. Try using products such as the ghd Style Final Fix Hairspray (great for holding styles after straightening or curling) or theRedken ForcefuL 23 (helps to lift and hold while avoiding frizz). 

    Retail Box has a wide selection ofstyling aids that will add plenty of volume to short hair, for styles that last.
