How to Create Volume in a Haircut

Learn how to create volume in a haircut from stylist Janet Waddell in this Howcast hair tutorial.


So, this is how to create volume cutting hair. It is an extension of the layering technique that I showed earlier, but just for an example around the crown, what you can do is take a section around the crown, around the head, and come in and just take really gentle, small little sections in a pie shape around the crown. Just lifting up, not a lot of tension, and just creating a little bit of shorter lengths within the longer lengths. And what that will do it will create volume around the crown area. So, what you'll get an area that's traditionally can go quite flat. You'll get a really nice sort of gentle almost an invisible volume to the hair and that's how you will create volume cutting hair.
