Nothing, is sexier than a tumble of tousled tresses — with va-va-voom volume and gravity-defying lift (think Bardot, not Bon Jovi). Since only a handful of us are actually born with bombshell manes, top hair care companies have created genius volumizing products to help us fake it.

From lift-inducing inserts to thickening dry shampoos, these 'do-boosting gems will take you from blah to bodacious in seconds!


Dry Shampoo:
Sometimes second- and third-day 'dos are the best! Especially with a translucent dry shampoo — simply spray throughout hair and finger-tousle.

The gentle starches absorb excess oil while adding Cosmo cover girl-style volume to ho-hum hair. Rowr.

    • This one tweet explains that truly bizarre Oscars Best Picture mixup perfectly

      In what is certainly the weirdest moment in Oscars history, the incorrect Best Picture winner was announced on stage to finish off the 89th Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway first announced La La Land as the big winner of the night. The cast and crew walked onstage and began to make their speeches, only to be stopped halfway through — the correct winner was actually Moonlight. Comedian Jackie Jennings quickly pointed out a perfect explanation for the bizarre mistake. WAIT BUT THIS IS ACTUALLY THE REAL END OF LA LA LAND AND ITS GREAT #Oscars — Jackie Jennings (@ohhijackie) February 27, 2017 La La Land' s depressing dream sequence finale was oddly similar to the ending of the Oscars. The Oscars ended exactly like La La Land did. La La Land is the Oscars. The Oscars are La La Land . SEE ALSO: Your guide to the 2017 Oscars, in highly accurate charts As the dust settles on the weirdest Academy Awards thing of all time, more dazed viewers have begun to realize the connection. Hey "La La Land" remember when you gave us that fake happy ending and then took it awayHow's it feel — Daniel "Kibblesmith" (@kibblesmith) February 27, 2017 This was super meta for La La Land- the movie about following your dreams with the most crushing ending. — Tiffany Mink (@minkus) February 27, 2017 I hope they put that alternate ending on the La La Land blu ray — pat tobin (@tastefactory) February 27, 2017 So that was actually just like La La Land, where they imagine the joy and glory they would have had, only to accept a different ending. — Joshuah Bearman (@joshbearman) February 27, 2017 Remember at the end of La La Land where it shows the happy ending but then it's snatched away? And it's nighttime? And there's MOONLIGHT?! — Corey Vidal (@CoreyVidal) February 27, 2017 Insane the Oscars would have the same dream sequence ending as La La Land. — Peter Sherer (@psherz) February 27, 2017 BONUS: Oscars contender 'La La Land' gets an old school video game treatment

    • Shaq says he won't mention JaVale McGee again because his mom told him to stop

In an interview with The Undefeated’s Mike Wise, O’Neal said that his mother told him to “stop this silliness,” so he won’t mention McGee’s name on the air during “Shaqtin’ A Fool” again. “I have orders from the top to leave it alone,” O’Neal said past midnight on Saturday. NBA commissioner Adam Silver? “No,” O’Neal said. “My mama. Just say Shaq’s mom called him, told him, ‘Stop this silliness. Leave him alone.’ So that’s the end of the beef.

    • This pre-Oscars commercial for Avatar World is terrifying people

      The pre-Oscars Red Carpet affair has, over the years, developed into a prime spot for studios and companies to air new TV spots, trailers and commercials. Think Super Bowl, but far less expensive. Before the 89th annual Academy Awards kicked off on Sunday, Disney aired a commercial for its upcoming Avatar World theme park, featuring commentary from Avatar director James Cameron. The commercial showed off parts of the park, including fully functional, animatronic creatures from Avatar. One has to imagine the attempt was to show off how futuristic and technologically advanced the section of the park is, but the entire ad came off as far too creepy. The commercial is only 30-seconds in length, but
