Create volume for thinner locks by following this simple updo tutorial.

Step 1:

Spray Aveda's Invati Scalp Revitalizer directly onto the scalp and massage. Spray everywhere you notice thinning hair (spray on scalp up to 16 times). Pro tip: to quickly style after you've sprayed this product, hit hair with a quick blast of your blow dryer... it'll help add volume too.

Step 2:

Starting at the side of your head, make a diagonal part going back. A side, diagonal part helps camouflage thinning hair.

Step 3:

Gather the top half of your hair into the back of your head and start to make a ponytail, creating a "loop," leaving the "tail" of the ponytail out. Making this "loopy" updo will give the illusion of thick, full hair.

Using bobby pins, pin the loop against your head.

Step 7:

Gather the bottom half of your hair into the back of your head and make another "loop" and "tail". Bobby pin the loop against your head, as you did the first one.

Lightly backcomb your bang area to camouflage any thin-looking hair. Pro tip: backcombing is a great trick to make hair appear thicker — doing it lightly ensures you're being gentle with your hair.

Step 10:

Take the side of your bang area with the least amount of hair and spread it out so it appears thicker. Spray into place with hairspray.

An updo gives hair the appearance of looking thicker than when it's worn all the way down. Although wearing your hair down can appear thicker with a great blow-out, thickening spray/powder and some back-combing, a few of these steps can be skipped if you opt for a quick updo like this.
