I think most of it is the way her curl is but I can get crazy volume like this by diffusing my hair a lot. Do it upside down while hair is a bit damp still with or without product. And I put hair spray on the roots in different sections and diffuse too for extra volume. Good luck

Once your hair is dry you can increase volume by gently pulling out the roots using your fingers as a comb/pick (some people use an actual pick). If you choose not to diffuse it helps (me at least) to flip the hair upside down a few times during the air drying process and scrunching the curls upwards. All of these things increase volume very well. If your hair is naturally thin/fine you may need to finish with a hairspray to hold the volume you've created.
