Jennifer's beauty stats: 27; brown, fine curly hair; sensitive skin
"I'm obsessed with massive, curly hair the bigger, the better. Even though I inherited my dad's fine strands, I got my mom's curls, which luckily give me some texture to work with. It takes time to get this voluminous look, so I start getting ready 20 minutes earlier than on straight-hair days. But I always feel happier when my hair is bouncing around my shoulders, which makes the whole process worth it."
Oribe Shampoo for Magnificent Volume
"I switch shampoos every time a bottle runs out, but I always look for a thickening formula. I use a smoothing conditioner to keep my dry hair soft and to keep frizz at bay.
TIGI Bed Head Superstar Thermal Blow-Dry Lotion for Thick Massive Hair
"After shampooing, I comb out any tangles and work a quarter-size amount of this lotion through my wet hair. It protects from heat styling, and by the time I finish blow-drying, my hair is three times its normal size."
Conair Satin Finish Ceramic Instant Heat 3/4" Curling Iron
"My fine hair eventually falls limp even when I use a big curling iron. So I use a medium barrel to create tight curls that turn into loose, bouncy waves later. I start at the front and curl hair away from my face, so it looks like my hair is always blowing back."
TIGI Bed Head Superstar Volumizing Hairspray
"I spritz a layer of this hairspray over the top of my curls and let it sit for five minutes. Then I flip my hair over and shake it out, starting from the roots down. I spray another layer over the underside of my hair and flip it back. Then I smooth my hand over any frizz and do a quick touch-up spray on pieces that look like they might straighten out quickly."
