Instant volume in three steps

You are here

Want instant volume in three easy steps? Check out this fantastic advice from ghd Global Ambassador, Adam Reed...

There are many factors which can contribute to flat hair. Perhaps hair is too long, is light and fine or is super smooth and glossy; all have a tendency to sit flat and lack volume. Follow my three simple steps for instant & long-lasting volume in all hair types:


ghd has launched a wonder tool to create instant volume; the NEW ghd rise hot brush (£169). Designed to style dry hair, the brush glides effortlessly through hair from the roots. The smooth-touch bristles allow for close contact at the root - adding immediate body with fullness and bounce. This innovation has really got me excited, all my clients crave volumised hair, but struggle – this easy to use tool creates volume from the root, creates flicks for fringes or ends or can be used to add body throughout, whatever you want, you can get it... quickly!


For long lasting volume, combine the ghd rise hot brush with products that are going to give additional hold to your style. I always recommend spritzing roots with the ghd root lift spray (£14.50) before styling, as this creates 2X more volume when using the ghd rise and prevents any style from falling flat. It is also the perfect pick-me-up for hair that is prone to looking limp and lifeless. For extra staying power, mist ghd final fix hairspray (£10.95) onto the roots before styling with the rise, as this will help keep hair in place whatever the weather.


The best way to achieve full bodied volume is to ensure that you are getting even heat throughout the hair by lifting the ghd rise hot brush (£169) in at the root for eight seconds and then slowly and gently twisting it through the lengths of the hair so heat is evenly distributed throughout every inch. This is essential to achieve maximum results as volume isn’t just about the roots, it is about creating aerated volume throughout the hair which is key this season.

The sell-out ghd rise hot brush is the latest new launch from global leading hair tool brand, ghd and is guaranteed to be top of the wish list for beauty lovers around the world. Achieve instant and effortless volume with ghd rise, or glide through the lengths for added shape, body and fullness.

ghd’s unique ultra-zone SMART technology spans the 32mm barrel, intelligently sensing and predicting your hair’s needs as you style. It delivers a consistent temperature of 185°C across the entire barrel that is monitored 250 times per second, proactively adapting the power based on the speed of your styling for optimal temperature and results. In addition, smooth-touch nylon bristles are optimised to ensure the closest contact to lift hair from the root and glides smoothly through the lengths for tangle-free styling. The result? Healthier looking hair with volume that lasts all day.

To maximise this gift, pair the ghd rise hot brush (£169) with the ghd root lift spray (£14.50) which will give her 2X more volume for flawless body and lift from root to tip.
