  1. Hi there,

    I have quite fine hair and thus always craved for gorgeous volume. My only go-to hairstyle for volume was tight curls before I read this article.

    After I read this article thoroughly, I was amazed by finding out so many hairdos to try to add volume to my short fine hair. Impressive!

    Thank you very much for coming up with this piece of writing and giving us ideas to deck up our tresses.

    Nice work!

    Keep it up!

    • Dear Selena,

      Thank you very much for such sweet and encouraging words.

      We appreciate our readers’ inspirations and feedback.

      Please stay with us for more articles on versatile hairstyles.

  2. Very helpful piece of writing indeed!

    I enjoyed reading it thoroughly. All the hairdos that you have mentioned are extremely easy to create yet look super gorgeous on the head.

    Very appreciable!

    But if your writing was a little bit more polished, I would have enjoyed it even more.

    • Dear Lilly,

      Thank you very much for your kind words.

      We would keep in mind your suggestion and write accordingly.

  3. Hello there,

    I have read somewhere that washing your short hair with a volumizing shampoo and applying some volumizing hair serum before crimping them helps to hold the style for long.

    Is it true?

    If not then what can I do to hold my style in my short tresses for 5-6 hours straight?

    Your suggestions would be very helpful.

    Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Celica,

      Yes, volumizing products indeed help your short tresses to hold the style precisely. Using such products not only increase hairs body but also build an excellent base for the crimping or curling.

      Aside from volumizing shampoo and serum, you can also finish off the styling by spritzing on some holding spray to your freshly styled hair to make them stay in place for a long period.

      We hope this would help.

  4. As some of your fans stated that this article is well described, easy to understand- I see it as repetitive and boring.

    For starter, you guys have written the same thing in all the “steps”- prepare your hair with a heat protectant. Wouldn’t it be better if you have mentioned all these in the hair preparation step and then actually describe other things in each part?

    No hard feelings, please!

    Just a friendly piece of my personal opinion!

    • Dear Chai,
