Crimpers maybe belong back in the 90’s but they can be used slightly more selectively to create lots of volume around the top of the head. .

Use A Crimper For Extra Volume Instructions!
Today’s video is on how to use a crimper to get some extra volume!
I got this crimper quite a while ago but never used it until recently.
Clip away the very top section of your hair.
Apply heat protector to the roots.
Take a very thin section from one side and crimp for around 10 seconds right at the roots.
Flip it out of the way and repeat the process with a section underneath it.
You can see the zigzag pattern that the crimper leaves.
And one more under that.
When you bring them all back they will be super puffy.
The more sections you crimp, the more volume you’ll get.
Repeat on the other side.
The zigzags give volume and because they are at the roots they are hidden by the hair on top of them.
You can vary the technique a bit depending on the finished hairstyle you want.
Just remember to leave enough un-crimped hair at the top to cover all of the crimped pieces.
Don’t forget the back too!
The are where you want to crimp will change depending on where your part is or which sections will be visible on the final look.
Shake out the hair and separate all of the crinkles with your fingers.
Hairspray if needed.
The volume also lasts for quite a long time because the crimps will last as long as your hair normally takes heat styling.
I hope this was a useful video.
