How to do the 'flipped' fringe and 'XXL' hair – autumn's voluminous trend

Hair this AW22 is about volume, volume, volume.

The layered blowout is back (thank you 90s) along with anything else that creates the illusion of having more – think of this year’s wolf cut and the boy bob.

Now we’re moving onto what’s been dubbed as ‘XXL’ hair as well as the flipped fringe, according to Syd Hayes – a celebrity hair stylist for BaByliss.

He says: ‘XXL hair is something we are seeing across red carpets and backstage this season.’

You need to ‘create body, fullness and bounce in the hair’ in order to pull it off, and he recommends using a multi-purpose tool such as the BaByliss Hydro Fusion Dryer Brush.

He adds: ‘The most important thing when you are aiming for fuller, thicker hair is to make sure it looks and feels healthy.

‘Make sure you get rid of split ends and request for the ends to be sliced out or even razored so you don’t have too much of a blunt line at the bottom. 

‘This will make the maintenance easier and ensure it looks healthier for longer.’

For added boost, he recommends using a root lifter and styling spray – or even your at-home dry shampoo will do the trick.

This is your base for a flipped fringe, which looks best when the rest of the hair is blown out.

Kim Kardashian and Florence Pugh are good references here, as their fringes are pictured off the face, flipped back and positioned over other locks of hair.

To do the flipped fringe, you ideally need a fringe that’s on the longer side and can be swept back. It even works if you have short face-framing layers.

The idea is you lift the fringe off the face, so it’s flipped back and has a wave to it.

Syd explains: ‘Make sure your bangs are cut in a 70s centre part fringe then take a deep side part – always think about your selfie side for the way you want the fringe to sit. 

‘To give lift and volume, use the BaByliss Hydro Fusion Brush and roll the section of hair in the opposite direction to the way you want your fringe to sit.

‘Flip the section of hair back the other way and you’re left with lift and height.’
