Big hair rules!

I love my hair big and am always trying to maximize volume without frizz.

I voted YES to big hair! I love to see big, bouncy, happy curls on people.

I love my own hair to feel bouncy & swishy too but I have to be careful not to lose too much length.

I love those adverts where the models have that big, swingy hair (I'm getting carried away now, I know those people aren't real )

My hair also "grows" outward during the day, and it would be huge without products. I try to control some of the bigness because big hair looks overpowering on me - I have a petite build and small face. All this to say that I think big hair can be beautiful and look great on some people, but I don't like it on me.

I don't like big hair, but that's probably because when I think of big hair, I think of my hair after being blow-dried with a regular dryer. I'm not talking about just some Oomph! and volume. My hair took "big" to the extreme. It was frightening. It was amazing how I was able to deal with it. I blow dry with a diffuser now and my hair has volume, but it is not HUGE like it used to be.

One of my all-time favorite big hair photos (though i'm sure it's a roller set):



Love her color, too.

Thumbs up! I have fine, wavy hair--so always trying to get more lift/body/curl. Used to curl my hair in high school to make it bigger--you should see my senior pic I curled and poofed my bangs, until my future fiance convinced me to stop

Another favorite of mine - and a hair goal, if I'm ever living somewhere with higher humidity again. :P

Default love big hair!

I bend over and massage the roots to fluff mine up during the day as it settles down. I love big hair and I wish mine was bigger too... but I don't like many products in my hair, so I go for soft and flat... with the bending over thing a few times a day.

I so love big hair. I try but I have fine hair so I know it'll never be as big as those! Those gals have some thickness. I'm jealous!

I LOVE my (and all) BIG hair!

You really have to wear it big to work... I try to as much as possible cos my coworkers will have the nerve to stop by and whine when I wear buns. One even asked me to teach her to make her stick straight hair big like mine. I told her: this is nature at work!!

Love all the pics... I forgot Nicole Kidman used to look like that!

I love big hair too! All of the pics posted are great!! Now if only my hair could be a little bit big, I would never try to tame it, never.
