  • Fluffy hair is trending on TikTok.
  • Achieving the look at home is all about proper preparation before drying and styling.
  • An editor shares how to achieve the perfect fluffy hair look.

I don’t mean to complain, but having fine hair sucks. Over the years, mine has experienced more fallouts and breakages than I care to admit (I curse the days before I knew how to use a round brush properly), which means I love girls with long, thick, luscious hair. I’ve also always thought that achieving the look for myself was unattainable.

When I saw “fluffy” hair go viral on TikTok (the hashtag #fluffyhair has over 756 million views and counting), I didn’t think this was a style I could achieve. But luckily for me, the platform is a treasure trove of information on how to master the look at home, even if you have thin hair. Once I finally figured out how to make it work for me, the compliments started rolling in. Because I’m a kind person and believe everyone is entitled to a good hair day, I’m sharing all the secrets I’ve learned to achieve the popular bouncy style without ever having to visit a salon.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to create TikTok’s fluffy hair look.

Step 1: Wash your hair strategically

After much trial and error, I’ve learned that achieving that fluffy look starts in the shower. I didn’t want to risk weighing my hair down, so instead of doing my normal shampoo and conditioner routine, I backwashed the hair, which I knew would eliminate any excess weight caused by too much product .

Step 2: Prepare hair for styling

When I got out I tucked my hair into a microfiber towel to soak up the water and after 15 minutes I took it off and started prepping. I started by using the Unite 7 Seconds Leave-In Conditioner ($33) to comb through any tangles. Next, I took a dollop of the Authentic Beauty Concept Amplify Mousse ($25) and spread it out with my fingers. I’ve found that adding mousse to my hair before blow-drying helps add volume and set the style. Finally, to protect it from hot tools, I spritzed Gisou Propolis Infused Heat Protecting Spray ($41) all over it.

Step 3: Dry hair with a hair dryer brush

Then it was time for the styling. I’ve been able to achieve the fluffy look with a blow dryer and a round brush, and even just Velcro rollers, but my favorite is to use a blow dry brush like the Dyson Airwrap ($600).

After roughly drying my hair and cutting it into two sections, I took the round brush attachment and started running it through my hair, twisting it at the end to curl it up. I part my hair down the middle, so I twisted each side in the opposite direction and ran the blow dryer brush through my roots to make sure I had plenty of volume. I continued doing this until my hair was about 90 percent dry, focusing on the ends and making sure they were twisted inside out. To finish it all off, I parted my curtain bangs from the rest of my hair and blow dried them while continuing to twist the blow dryer brush upwards. Then I brushed everything back with a large paddle brush.

Results for fluffy hair

The end result was bouncy, bouncy hair that was soft to the touch.

I learned a few quick tips along the way that are worth paying attention to. First, I’ve found that my hair looks fluffiest when I’ve cut lots of layers into my hair, but I’ve been able to make this style work for me even when my layers have grown out. If I don’t have the patience to blow dry my hair and keep flipping the ends out, I’ve found that putting my hair in velcro rollers with the ends flipped out works just as well.

However, when I wear my hair in a fluffy style I always get lots of compliments which is why it has become one of my signature looks.
