Fall Trend: Voluminous Hair By Marcus Francis
“Full, voluminous hair will once again make a comeback as it’s done so before,” says celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis, whose clients include Kerry Washington, Hailee Steinfeld and Jessica Pare. The volume that Francis is speaking of is not that of the teased 1980s Dallas meets Dolly Parton, but rather a bit more glam. “This style has morphed into several versions but can be attributed to the 50s, 60s, and 70s on actresses like Jaclyn Smith, Jerry Hall, and Jane Fonda.”
Apply Leonor Greyl Volumizing Styling Mousse or Rene Furterer Vegetal Mousse. “Both give volume from roots to ends and these two products aren’t sticky which makes the hair easy and touchable,” explains Francis. “You can get the look by setting your hair in either large hot rollers or Velcro rollers.” If using velcro rollers, try sleeping in them. Francis suggests using a Mason Pearson Junior Mix Brushor a Denman Vented Brush to separate curls.
*Editor’s Note: The Leonor Greyl mousse can be applied to wet or dry hair as it is alcohol-free and is rather easy to brush through, creating volume. The Rene Furterer Mousse should be distributed on the roots, to towel-dried hair for optimal volume.
TIP: For sky-high volume, flip the head upside down and brush out again. When you flip back over spray lightly with Elnett Strong Hold. Wait a few minutes and brush out again, but this time gently brush your hair in the opposite direction – meaning against your hair growth – up, almost like you’re teasing it, and focus primarily at the roots. This will give you beautiful va-va-voom volume, without being 80s cheesy! Something about the hairspray and the boar-bristle brush….
