The Volumizing Trick Every Girl With Thin Hair Needs to Try

All you need is a toothbrush and a flick of the wrist.

When you have fine hair, getting a gorgeous, full-looking style can be tough - you primp it, tousle it, and blow it out, but it just keeps falling flat. Next time you're styling freshly clean, dry hair, try this simple trick for a little extra oomph.

1. Separate your hair. Run a comb down and part your hair about an inch away from your regular part. This keeps the teased portion of your hair hidden.

2. Backcomb it with a toothbrush. Gently tease your roots at the crown along your parted hair using a clean, unused toothbrush. Yes, really - a toothbrush! The bristles are soft and small, making the added lift subtler and allowing you to retain more control than you would be able to with a regular hairbrush. (You don't want totally '80s hair after all, do you?)

3. Repeat. Flip your part to the other side and tease it gently again.

4. Part normally. Voila! More volume without any messiness.

1. Slough away dead cells to reveal softer, more luminous skin. Even if you already use a physical exfoliator (a formula boasting scrubbing beads to buff your complexion), adding a chemical exfoliator to your regimen will make a big difference in the look and feel of your skin. Once a week (or twice, depending on how sensitive your skin is), skip using your usual serum or moisturizer, and replace it with a leave-on chemical exfoliator, like Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care, which uses ingredients like glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin deeply, cleansing your pores of dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris that can lead to breakouts, and rose water to help calm the skin as the exfoliator does its work. Just remember to apply sunscreen immediately afterward, since it will make your skin sensitive to the sun's rays.
