Lions are known for their lush, luxurious manes. A lion’s mane is swept back from its face and is thick and full. To achieve a lion’s mane look for yourself, adding tons of volume to your hair is crucial. One way to add volume, particularly if you have thick or wavy hair, is to braid your hair while it’s wet and allow it to air dry. When you take down the braids and add the right styling products, your crimped hair will stand out from your head like a lion’s mane.

Things You'll Need

Wash your hair with volumizing shampoo. Dry it with a towel until it’s slightly damp.

Braid your hair in small braids all over your head. Secure the end of each braid with a small, non-slip rubber band.

Allow your hair to dry naturally. This may require leaving the braids in overnight.

Unbraid your dry hair. Comb it out with a pick to make it fuller.

Spray your hair away from your face with hairspray. Apply an extra spritz to the roots. Pull your hair straight out from your head and direct a blow dryer at the sprayed roots for a few seconds to help your hair look fuller.
