Seems it's all about volume these days, and powders are one way to pump it up. Bumble and bumble's new one, Pret-a-powder, blends clay and oat flour for dry cleansing and volume -- plus it will extend the life of your blow-dry. It comes in four shades -- white, blonde, brown and black; $26, bumbleandbumble.com.
If mechanical help is called for, try HIclips -- basically a hairclip on steroids. The multi-leveled clip, said to work on all kinds of hair (long, short, curly, straight), is inserted while blow drying to up the lift without benefit of products; $14.95 for two at hiclips.com.
Big Sexy Hair is a product line that gives you just that. Latest editions to the full-service collection include Color Safe Volumizing Treatment, $16.95, with botanicals to repair and condition, and Big Altitude Bodifying Blow Dry Mousse, $17.95, with a protein to build natural-looking volume; all at ulta.com.
