Pump Up the Volume Tips from Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan Willhite

Looking for a quick and easy way to add volume to locks?  Morgan Willhite, Creative Director at the Ouidad Salon Santa Monica, demonstrates how to add lift and volume to curls and waves via a video using duckbill clips. 

“Curly girls must always remember that how hair looks, when it's dry, depends on how it appears when wet,” says Willhite.  The hair's shape and style can be influenced or encouraged by the positioning of the roots at the moment the hair begins to dry.  Use Ouidad’s Curl Clips ($5 per clip at Ulta, Sephora and to direct curls, create height and style hair away from the face.  These long metal clips, often used to hold rollers in place, are ideal for positioning wet hair.

Step 1
  • Open clip no more than a half inch to inch wide and hold clip on its side (not flat) and gently slide clip along scalp and keep it as close to root as possible
Step 2
  • Position clip to lift the hair evenly across the crown, working from front to back
Step 3
  • Dry hair with a diffuser or allow to air dry
