Each time I opened up Vogue or perused gossip blogs for the latest pictures of party-hopping socialites (guilty pleasure galore!), I would curse my fine, straight hair. Curlers, rollers, mousses, sprays–I had tried them all, and in most cases more than once. Hollywood hair was not in my destiny, it seemed.
This all changed when I was introduced to Bumpits Hair Volumizing Inserts. Finally! Somebody thought of the girls like me, whose hair stays up only if she places her hand on one of those giant electric balls they have at science exhibitions.
Here’s how it works: you slide the inserts onto your hair like a headband, then brush and arrange your hair over it until all the plastic is hidden. Voila! Big hair that takes minutes to create, whenever I want it, minus the sticky products that take hours to comb out of my stick-straight hair at the end of the night.
Bumpits Hair Volumizing Inserts cost $19.99. That’s a little more than I would usually spend on a hair accessory. But then again, when is the last time a hairband was able to make my hair styling dreams come true?
