Very bravely lobbed my waist-length hair off into a long pixie type style. How do I create volume n body in my hair? Preferably for free/cheap? I used to plait it and leave it overnight but now it's too short for even a ponytail!

Advice from any short haired girls desperately needed!!

Not free but Aussie mousse is amazing, I can't actually believe I lived without it this long, volume that lasts all day without being sticky. I have fine shoulder length hair but I have forced my pixie cut mum to use it too. For free? Blow dry upside down, use a round brush, and add velcro rollers at the crown once it's dry. (I wear mine on my 45 minute drive to work, heavens knows what I look like to other motorists, Nora Batty probably!)

I use vo5 thicken up gel foam which makes my fine limp hair look thick and gives it loads of volume that lasts all day.

My mum has had a similar style for years. She's just started using this and says it is amazing'ful-Volumizing-Styling-Powder-10g_1180326%2F%3Fcm_mmc%3Dbmm-_-google-_-PLAs-_-Boots%2520Shopping%2520-%2520Category%2520-%2520Health%2520and%2520Pharmacy
