When the subject is hair, fat equals happy. "The quest for volume starts with the right products," says Steven Dillon of New York's Pierre Michel Salon. First, he advises, find a volumizing shampoo that also removes buildup (which weighs hair down). Next, apply a bite-size bit of thickening mousse or spray to plump up hair cuticles and give your style hold and height. Vavoom celebrity stylist Mark Townsend (who rules the big-bodied waves of Penélope Cruz) believes it's all about the blowdry, "since so many styling products are heat-activated." Flip your hair over and dry the undersides of your strands. Then flip up and finish styling with a big round brush. We've also seen stylists at many photo shoots cheat a little by throwing in a few Velcro rollers while the model's hair is still warm from blowdrying-works wonders. If you're still volume-challenged, Dillon thinks your haircut may be to blame. "Consider something chopped at the collarbone or above, with layers longer in front," he advises. "This look never falls flat."
