Reminiscent of an ‘80s Cindy, Elle and Claudia, the big, bad blowout is back and better than ever.
A few months ago, hairstylist Sam McKnight kicked things off with a Dolly Parton-esque adaptation on Bella Hadid for Dsquared’s campaign. Since then, the blowout trend has been manifest on Instagram feeds and celebrities everywhere; most recently culminating the very gargantuan hair at Maison Valentino’s Haute Couture offering, with Guido Palau taking Kaia Gerber’s hair to extreme new heights.
There’s just something about big body that gives us confidence. It makes you stand a little taller, walk a little stronger, and quite literally puts a bounce in your step. Here, seven products to put the volume back in your strands.
Big is better.

It all begins with a good base. Set your strands up for big success with Phyto’s Phytodensia Shampoo which targets the scalp and the capillary fiber to restore volume and youth. This shampoo creates a wonderfully light lather for hair full of air, volume and softness.
