"Yep, you read it right .. a hairbrush. The boar bristle will absorb the sebum (natural oil) from the scalp and carry it into the lengths, creating more volume at the roots and more shine throughout the lengths... win win."

"Less Is More is a certified organic haircare and styling range from Austria. This spray volumizer works best when used with heat. When applied to the roots and blowdried with a round brush, it creates a light invisible hold that will last for days. It’s aromatherapeutic scent is a huge bonus as well."

Less is More Lime Souffle,$27,contentbeautywellbeing.com
"The biggest turnoff backstage at the shows is the thick cloud of headache inducing hairspray. The Infinium Pure hairspray is the odorless workhorse that both the professional and consumer need to fix their volume with. It comes in various strengths, but I love the softest, as it brushes through beautifully or has a less helmet -like hold."
L’Oréal Infinium Pure Hairspray, $14, lorealprofessionnel.com
"For maximum volume, the round brush is an invaluable tool. This is my preferred choice, as it is very easy for the consumer to use as it is lightweight. The cork grip gives a great sweat-free handle, and the boar bristle barrel comes in either brown or blond."
