Last Tuesday, Alicia (FunnyFaceBeauty) and I had the honors to attend an exclusive private event to preview the new Luxurious Volume by John Frieda Collection that will out the end of this month, but stay tuned at the bottom of this post for your chance to win the full line before it even hits shelves.
Alain Larivée, who is the owner of CAJH Maîtres Coiffeurs Salon in Montreal, joined John Frieda’s team of experts in 2007 to act as the brand’s creative consultant in Canada. Alain is one of the most sought-after hairstylist in Montreal and we all had the chance to talk “hair” with him one on one. He also did a presentation on how to achieve full, touchable, natural-looking hair in a few easy steps using the new Luxurious Volume Collection by John Frieda.
Alain taught us some tricks to get natural-looking volume at home in a few easy steps. You want to first start off my using John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and Conditioner to build fullness, then after towel drying only work in some Luxurious Volume Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion to help get extra volume at the crown. Finally before using your heat appliances spray your roots with heat-activated Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-out Spray, and you’ll achieve fullness that looks natural, but still touchably soft.

Alain volume boosting style tricks were easy to follow and he promises everyone can get this look from home using the new luxurious volume line.
Divide the hair into two inch sections with fingers and curl ends under using a large round brush and heat with a blow-dryer to polish locks
Use your favourite tourmaline or ceramic-covered round styling brush for the best results as they can heat up easier.
Focus on aiming the heat from the dryer on the brush versus the rest of your hair.
After applying Fine to Full Blow Out Spray, try turning your head upside down to allow gravity to lift your hair off the roots.
From flat to mega volume in only a few short steps
