Volume is the Goldilocks of hair traits. We either have too much (inflating our hair to epic, '80s-like proportions) or too little (leaving our strands limp and lifeless). Rarely ever is it just right.

We decided to do you a solid and test every top volume-maker out there — with results ranging from "Best hair day, ever!" to downright scary, and all the fluff in-between. What we found was that there’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to volumizers. So we’ve paired the best options out there with each hair type. Whether you want to turn it up a notch or three, click through to figure out how to adjust your volume to the perfect level.
