Big Tease. Proving volume isn’t only vertical

Omg, Becky. Look. At. Her. Hair! Get in on the larger-than-life trend with these styles, crafted by Bumble and Bumble editorial stylist (and XXL hair master) Jimmy Paul. We promise they’ll leave everyone talking.

1. The Flip Side.

A deep part is the easiest way to make a bob go boom. Best part: no hot tools required. Build texture by twisting, then saturating small sections of hair with surf spray (our new fave: Tresemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray, $7). Let hair air-dry, bend over and give it a shake, then part above the far end of either eyebrow. Like the wet look here? Scrunch in a drop of Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil, $39. The feather-light formula won’t flatten strands.


2. Big Tease.

Proving volume isn’t only vertical: this ‘70s inspired style that spreads out the sexy. Not born with a head of killer curls? Fake it by wrapping ½-inch sections around a ¾-inch curling iron. Run a wide-tooth comb through coils, then back-comb strands from ends to mid-lengths using a boar-bristle brush. Preserve the airy texture by misting it with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish, $30.


3. Tail Spin.

Forget the tame pony you’ve been sporting since … forever. Unleash this wilder one when you’re going for #SorryNotSorry sexy. The secret to nailing this pillowy texture: hot rollers! First, add a tennis ball-size amount of mousse (we love Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Soufflé Mousse, $5), then wind 2-inch sections of hair around rollers, wrapping away from your face. Remove when cool, and comb out curls with a boar-bristle brush. Bend over, blast roots with hair spray to add height, and pull everything into a low, loose ponytail.


4. So Bangin’.

Think a finge can only be worn with stick-straight strands? Wrong! This full-bodied look is about texture everywhere. Work a dime-size dollop of Gariner Fructis Full and Plush Mega Full Thickening Lotion, $4.30 (it has an instant strand plumping effect), into wet hair, and blow-dry using just your fingers. Next, wrap different-size sections of hair around a 1-inch wand alternating curl direction (wrap some toward your face and others away). Finish with a generous dose of texture spray (Big Sexy Hair Flip It Over, $19, is like back-combing in a bottle).
