As the season of perpetual hat hair winds down, I’m excited to breathe, or shall I say tease, some new life into my locks. My hair is the longest it has ever been and is looking a little weighed down. A tiny trim is in order, as is just the right product to give me some lift at the roots. If you thought this drawer needed a spring reorg, the one below it that houses hair care is like a war zone. Products seem to get swallowed in there or something so it was just recently I (re)discovered the Shu Uemura Volume Maker. It’s the answer to my flat crown woes. It is part dry shampoo, though its real powers lie in styling. It gives hair major oomph through an invisible powder with a dry texture. The application couldn’t be more unique – it looks like a makeup brush, right? Apply directly above the part of the roots you need a little lift, click twice and then sweep the brush along the area. After I do that in a few areas I usually flip my hair upside down, do a little fluff with my fingers and then flip back and style with my hands. Perfect lift and just the right amount of texture that is not gritty or heavy. The Volume Maker is like my on-demand hair stylist and I love how portable it is. For the 312 crowd, Maxine Salon on Rush sells Shu Uemura Art of Hair locally.
