Pump it Up: Pony Style
Adding volume to your pony tail is super simple and will really amp up your look! Simply put your hair into a pony-tail of whatever height you desire. Gently loosen the hair at your crown and around your ears for a relaxed look, and then grab a teasing comb and get to work. Grab small sections of your ponytail and tease it very lightly at the top and bottom of the strand. This works great on hair that is straights or wavy!

Pump it Up: Braid Style
Switch up your tight braids for lose, voluminous, relaxed braids! Choose your favorite braid and braid tightly, as you normally would. When you are done, simple loosen the braid by gently tugging on sections all the way up and down the braid. This will make your braid look super thick and voluminous! Trust us, people will have serious braid-envy over your gorgeous look- and it only takes minutes! How cool is that?!
