When you see a celebrity on the red carpet, you automatically admire their thick hair, flattering waves or beachy tresses. But, most celebrities, like most women, have fine hair.

The 15 volumizing and cute hairstyles below will help you get that celeb look. It’s time to whip out the flat iron, the round brush, the texturizing spray and the styling cream!

To do this, all you need to do is curl your hair with a little dollop of styling product. This will ensure your curls will last all day, guaranteeing some volume and body to your hair.
Dare to try a short and sculpted style
Just because you have short hair, it does not mean you can’t have stylish and voluminous hair. Proof: Ruby Rose has gorgeous hair. To get a voluminous hairstyle like hers, take some pomade and place your hair on the opposite side of where it grows. Then, you just have to style it.
Create a strong part in your hair
You can also opt for Taylor Swift’s hairstyle even if you have long hair. Although you should avoid using styling products like pomade. Indeed, this type of product will add weight to your hair and cancel the voluminous effect wanted.
Style your hair outwards
A voluminous hairstyle you can try is to style your hair outwards. By moving your hair away from your face, you can create a voluminous look. This styling method is great for people with very fine and straight hair.
Opt for a loose ponytail
