All of last year we’ve seen whacky trends come and go—rainbow hair, Super Mario hair and even pop culture inspired hair. So when we do come across a trend that’s not only making it big on the social circuit but also wearable, consider us besotted. That’s exactly the feeling we got when, very recently, aerated hair became a hot hair trend. As it continues gaining popularity one Instagram photo at a time, BeBeautiful shows you how to nail the look.

So first things first—what is aerated hair?

If you’ve confused this hair trend with a new variant of soda pop, snap out of it. Aerated hair is a trend where the roots of the hair are lifted and full while the lengths are smooth and sleek. It initially started out as a trend but owing to its high wearability factor turned into a popular styling technique.

The trend was started by celebrity hairstylist Noogie Nguyen after watching the bouncy hair of many models on the runway.

Even though the strands of hair are sleek, they are still bouncy and smooth.

The roots of the hair are full of volume or ‘aerated’.

 

How do you get aerated hair?

How do you get aerated hair?

There are two areas to focus on when trying your hand at wearing aerated hair—the roots and the length.

To lift up those roots, sprinkle some TIGI Sugar Dust over your scalp and massage it in. This invisible micro-root powder will absorb any oiliness and lend the area incredible fullness and texture. Then, to work on the lengths and make them smooth, turn to the Toni & Guy Shine Gloss Serum. The light formula of this serum is all you need to drive away frizz and control flyaways.
