How to Achieve “Mob Wife” Hair: Volume, Volume, Volume

If you haven’t seen the “Mob Wife” hair trend circulating around social media, you’ll want to check it out. Perhaps inspired by the recent return of maximalist sentiments among the internet’s most fashionable, a new aesthetic is in town. It’s characterized by fur and faux fur coats, eye-catching accessories, and voluminous hairstyles, and we love it—especially that last part. If you’re looking for a departure from the minimalist hairstyles of the past few years, keep reading. We’re exploring the volume, volume, volume of “Mob Wife” hair today.  

Analyzing the “Mob Wife” Hair Look

First of all, what defines this aesthetic? As the title of this blog post suggests, it’s all about volume. Whether you prefer a layered look and bouncy bangs a la Carmela Soprano, the fabulous updos of Jennifer Lawrence in Mob Girl, or a long, super-curly hair-down style, volume is the consistent element. 

So, how do you achieve “Mob Wife” hair? Well, by following all of the best tips for volumizing! Let’s round them up.


How to Add Volume

Tip 1: Use the Right Shampoo and Conditioner

Foundations are important, and when it comes to voluminous hair, that means using a shampoo and conditioner that supports your healthiest strands. If you are using products that don’t get your hair clean, leave it feeling greasy mere hours after it dries, contribute to an irritated scalp, etc., it is going to be more difficult to achieve any desired hairstyle. Of course, we’ll never miss an opportunity to suggest you give our DeeplyRooted Shampoo and Conditioner a try. Designed to gently exfoliate the scalp and hydrate, among other benefits, this duo is a healthy hair seeker’s best friend. But in general, you want to be sure you’re using a good shampoo and conditioner—it’s where volume goals begin! 

Tip 2: Consider Supplementing

Vitamin A, vitamin D, niacin, biotin—all of these and more can contribute to naturally voluminous hair. Lucky for you, our DeeplyRooted supplement has it all! 

Tip 3: Be Smart About Your Blow Dry

While it can sometimes be advantageous to avoid using heat on your hair, there is no better way to create volume than a good old-fashioned blow dry. For extra va-va-voom, blow dry your hair upside down. If you have a bit more time on your hands, you could also try the blow dry with round brush and rollers technique. Kayli Boyle offers a fantastic YouTube tutorial on this ultra-volume method. It’s impressive and totally fits the “Mob Wife” hair bill. 

Tip 4: Tease! 

If you struggle to achieve and keep volume, it could be the final push your hair needs … tease it! We know, this sounds alarming to those of you who’ve never tried it. But teasing isn’t reserved for the bumpit-style poof lovers (although, honestly, this kind of fits the “Mob Wife” hair feel, too). Teasing the hair can be a great way to add volume in, especially if your locks are stubborn about staying full after a blow dry. Byrdie has a detailed guide on how to tease your hair. 

Tip 5: Embrace a New Part

This is probably the simplest tip on our list today, but switching up your part really can add volume. If your hair is accustomed to sitting one way, the roots will naturally be standing up straighter if you flip-flop them, which leads to lasting volume on that side. If you’re in your volume era, consider going back and forth with your part on a regular basis! 

The real secret to “Mob Wife” hair is confidence, and we hope these tips help you discover a whole new level of self-love in your voluminous, healthy hair.
