Messy XXL volume: a mean mane of curls

Perfect volume: the style addict's Holy Grail, probably since Narcissus first saw his reflection in the water! Achieving the look, however, is not just about curls or crimping... there's also a lot of dishevelling to do...

A dishevelled look with big ambitions

When it comes to volume, real or false, a lion's mane is where it's at. Shapes today are all about representing the fullness of the female form, and hairstyles are of no exception. Over the last few seasons, hairstyles have been putting on some weight and are finally daring to take up space. At last, stylists can let loose their quest for new dimensions with a dishevelled XXL messy style.

Volume for all!

According to our hairstyle ambassador at L'Oréal Professionnel, Denis Holbecq, this XXL style is 'ideal for curly hair, whether brunette, golden blonde or even light auburn'. This 'floaty, larger-than-life, very seventies' look suits all face shapes, and even naturally thin hair is up to the challenge. While wavy, curly and frizzy hair have an obvious advantage, a skilled stylist and a generous application of volumising product gives every hair type the chance to fill out.

XXL Volume: no holding back

While it is possible to achieve dishevelled XXL volume by yourself, section by section, entrusting it to professional hands is by far your best option. A stylist will know how to create excessive volume, without holding back, whilst most importantly, still respecting the condition of your hair fibre. YES to exaggerating volume with panache, but NO to a head full of terrible tangles!
