Choose the Right Round Brush

In order to create volume with a round brush, it is important to start by choosing the right brush for your hair type and desired result. Round brushes come in different sizes and materials, such as ceramic or boar bristle. The size of the brush will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. For shorter hair, a smaller brush (around 1 inch in diameter) will work best, while longer hair may require a larger brush. Additionally, the material of the brush can affect the outcome. Ceramic brushes are great for adding shine, while boar bristle brushes are excellent for creating volume by distributing natural oils throughout the hair.

Prep Your Hair

Before using a round brush, it is important to prep your hair properly. Start by washing and conditioning your hair with products that are suitable for your hair type. Towel-dry your hair until it is damp, but not soaking wet. Applying a heat protectant spray or serum is important to protect your hair from heat damage. This will also help to smooth your hair and make it easier to manipulate with the round brush. It is also helpful to apply a volumizing mousse or spray at the roots of your hair to give it an extra boost of volume.

Section Your Hair

Dividing your hair into sections will make it easier to work with and ensure that you are able to thoroughly dry each section. Use hair clips to separate your hair into multiple sections. Start by working with the bottom layers of your hair and gradually work your way up to the top layers. This will help you achieve an even and voluminous result.

Use Your Round Brush

Now it’s time to start using your round brush. Take a section of hair and hold it taut. Place the round brush underneath the section of hair, near the roots. Position your blow dryer above the brush, directing the airflow down towards the ends of your hair. Slowly glide the brush through your hair, following it with the blow dryer. As you reach the ends of the hair, roll the brush outwards to create a rounded shape. Repeat this process with each section of hair, working from the bottom to the top.

Finishing Touches

Once you have finished drying and styling your hair with the round brush, it’s time to add some finishing touches. Gently run your fingers through your hair to loosen up any tight curls or waves created by the round brush. If desired, you can apply a small amount of styling product, such as hairspray or volumizing powder, to add extra hold and volume. Finally, admire your beautiful voluminous hair!
