We love a trip to the hairdresser, but if you’re after that fresh ‘salon-worthy’ blowout (and the gloriously bouncy volume that comes with it) at home, there’s plenty of tools and hair care products to try. Get ready to turn up the volume with these hair heroes.
We all want ‘cool girl’ hair, right? That effortlessly chic je ne sais quoi, no matter the scenario.

Prep, prime and define: that’s the mantra of this hair primer from Gisou. Its unique formula is infused with a resin-like material called Mirsalehi propolis, which is produced by the bees in founder Negin Mirsalehi’s family garden to build strong hives – how amazing is that?! Once applied, this primer helps to naturally strengthen your strands, enhance texture and ensure you’re left with workable hold for heat styling. Apply a pea-sized amount through dry hair before styling to prevent frizz and to maximise volume. It can also be applied to damp hair before a blow-dry for a little extra bounce and body.
Fake fuller-looking hair with this popular pre-styling spray from Bumble and bumble. Its lightweight formula does all the heavy lifting when it comes to building volume and thicker-looking strands. Ingredients like hydrolyzed wheat protein and silk powder help to nourish and add movement, along with a healthy, glossy finish. Spray over dry hair for a volume boost.
This gentle yet thoroughly cleansing shampoo primes hair for maximum fullness by removing residue and product build-up. A gentle surfactant blend preps hair without sulphates or silicones, leaving it fresh, clean and fuller-looking. Reach for this if you have fine or flat hair and pair it with its partner-in-prime, the Living Proof Full Conditioner, which is lightweight and helps detangle, smooth and add shine.
Who doesn’t love a ghd tool? This Helios™ Hair Dryer has been expertly engineered to deliver the ultimate styling control. It features variable power and temperature settings so you can nail your next blowout and really add body to your strands. Pair it with a rounded brush to build body and volume at the roots.
