Once we saw the voluminous locks that hairstylist Orlando Pita created for spring 2015, we knew that teased, blown-out strands were going to be big — pun intended. But, we also knew that it took hours and a whole dream team of pros to get the look, so we wanted a real-life take on voluminous hair instead. Now, we're giving you all the tricks and tips.

From blowdrying with a large round brush to a back-combing technique that won't give you knots, these tips will give you all the volume but none of the damage thanks to Pantene essentials, which protect your strands as well as your style. Try them yourself, and get ready to hit the runway, err, streets.
