How to get Volume in the Fringe in 4 Easy Steps
The fringe is a great way of creating volume in the hair. I say the bigger the better. If you want to create volume with a fringe then simplicity is key. You can easily create body and volume, whilst keeping plenty of natural movement for a fringe that looks fabulously full!

This is amazing. I have very fine greying hair and I have lost condition in a big way. This really helped. It plumped my hair and made it much more manageable. I will buy it again when I have run out. It smells heavenly too.
Styling Products and Tools for Volume in the Fringe
When it comes to styling, I believe in limiting the damage to hair. Too much heat on the hair leaves it looking frazzled. For maximum impact, the fringe should look healthy, full and shiny. Any hint of dry frizzy hair will ruin this look. That’s why I use multi-tasking styling products that condition your hair as you style. Plus, I prefer styling tools such as Velcro rollers that allow you to limit the amount of heat you apply to your hair.
For creating volume, body or texture in hair I rely on two simple styling tools: Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume and Velcro Rollers
- Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume. This super-lightweight mist was developed to leave hair full and give hold without any residue or stickiness.
- Volume-boosting Velcro rollers. Now, we know Velcro rollers can be tricky to work with at first. However, it worth persisting. A little practice makes perfect and getting handy with Velcro rollers really does give you a whole host of different styling options.
Find out How to use Velcro Rollers in 4 Easy Steps in my blog on the subject. Velcro Rollers are adaptable and can be used for any number of hairstyles. Discover how to use them with ease.
Get the Look: Volume in the Fringe
Step 1 – Prep your Hair for Styling
Shampoo and condition the hair with the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Take the excess water out of your hair with a towel. Hair should be damp but not dripping wet.
Step 2 – Super-lightweight Mist for adding Volume to the Fringe
Spritz 2 to 3 pumps of Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume in the hair. The super-lightweight mist can be sprayed above the head to fall on your hair, or directly on to the hair. Keep at a slight distance so that it spreads in the hair. Less is more. Leave for a few seconds and comb or brush through the hair.
If you are using another product, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for application.
Brilliant. I don’t usually do reviews but I am so pleased with this. I have grey fine hair which I am growing into another style. This spray has kept my hair looking tidy and natural.
Step 3 – Volume-boosting Velcro to add Volume to the Fringe
Blow dry as normal, ensuring you don’t over-dry the hair. Hair should be semi-dry so it should still have some moisture in it and still be warm before you apply the rollers. I rough-dried the model’s hair upside down until it was semi-dry. This is another way of adding volume to the hair.
So when your hair is semi-dry, you can pop a couple of small Velcro rollers in the fringe. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes allowing the hair to cool. You can finish up drying the rest of the hair. Again, we really urge you not to over-dry the hair as this can make the hair fly-away and increases heat damage to the hair.
Basically, if the hair feels dry, its time to put the hairdryer down.
Velcro rollers come in different sizes. The smaller sizes are great for volume on the fringe as they create a small lift. For bigger waves and curls, use bigger Velcros.
Step 4 – Light Touch to Finish your Style
Gently remove the Velcro rollers and use your fingers to finish the style. This bit is important and a light touch helps. It’s important to gently move the hair into place so that you don’t flatten the volume you’ve just created in your fringe.
Healthy Hair Matters
I’ve been working with hair for many years and getting volume in the hair, whether it’s at the fringe, or volume at the crown is a question that comes up often.
It’s a question that comes up for all hair types and getting enough body in thicker hair types can also be an issue. However, adding volume to hair is also a particular concern for fine hair types.
I’ve written extensively about caring for fine hair and adding volume to hair. We believe that styling hair is an important part of your hair care routine. Reducing the amount of heat applied to your hair and taking a more gentle approach to hair is a great way of maintaining healthy, shiny hair.

Here’s what Josephine Fairley and Sarah Stacey had to say,
“Beauty Bible fell in love with this mask when we discovered it at a Cosmetic Executive Women product demo evening. The brand comes from a London hair salon, and the mask is a huge boon for hair – packed with avocado, olive oil, aloe vera, nettle and horsetail, together with sage (which is rich in vitamins A, C and E). Just a sniff of this rich, unctuous creamy mask perks you up. Use for gleaming shiny, healthy hair.”
