We prefer the ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray and the Conair Instant Heat ½ inch Curling Iron for this voluminous hairstyle.

You have mentioned putting on a liberal amount of volumizing spray onto the tresses before adorning my long bob with small curls and ringlets.
What if I don’t use a volumizing spray? Won’t my curls come out as precise?
I would love to know your opinion.
Thanks in advance!
