One of our biggest problems as women (okay, probably not our biggest, but one of) is maintaining volume in our hair--even for celebrities like Blake Lively. Devin Toth, hairstylist from Ted Gibson Salon in N.Y.C. walked our friends at Beauty High through the steps to amping up the volume in your strands. He also suggested that face-framing layers are a great trick for instant oomph.

Before you blow dry, start with a volumizing spray or light gel to five the roots some lift.

Use a medium-sized boar bristle round brush to blow dry in 1 1/2 inch horizontal sections from iris to iris. Lift at the root and add balance to the ends.

Focus on the short layers around the face. Blow dry them back away from the face to create lift.

For extra lift, back comb the section at the front of your hair (the iris to iris section) just at the roots.

Finish with a light hold hairspray to separate the layers.
