Wash and condition
Wash the hair with a volumizing shampoo and add conditioner without rinsing right away. Rinse, shake dry, and put in a side part, throwing the hair over loosely to enhance the natural texture, and give a fuller sexy look.
Apply drops of shine serum on top without working it in to the roots and blow-dry for a glossy sheen. Protect the hair from heat styling to avoid frizz.
Spray and rough
Spray a volume enhanced product over damp strands. Blow-dry while roughing the mass up for body. Section and clip the hair up to comb out tangles.
Make a natural curl
Wind up only the bottom few inches of hair around a curling iron. Rub in styling cream with your fingers and twist small sections to suggest a naturally attractive curl.
Bring it all up
Fix a ponytail low in the back, and scoop it to the crown of the head. Secure it with a jeweled clip.
Style it shorter
Style your hair with a shorter cut -- a shag or bob -- to bring out the natural hair texture. Trim regularly to hold down any frizz.
Dye the hair
Dye your hair for an entirely different look. Since hair color fattens the hair shaft, it will get thicker and bouncier as well.
