If you were around in the early 2000s, you saw one or more bump-it hair infomercials. Now thanks to Addison Rae and other it-girls, the style has seen a comeback on social media. Bumpits are an effortless and cost-effective way to add height. Plus, this look extends your highlights between salon appointments if that is something you do!
If you were around in the 90s and 2000s, you remember the bumpit hair trend. Teased poufs with added volume have long been popular among many women – now Gen Z seems to have adopted this millennial hair trend once again! To create an up-down bump, start with a low ponytail and tease it until you achieve the desired effect. Some prefer an up-down node nearer the front of the head; others may select one closer to their crown; whatever works for you will result in beautiful results! If you want to give your bump even more of an eye-catching appearance, try pinning it with bobby pins to keep the flyaways at bay and create an overall polished appearance. Or use hairspray for added security for a seamless and finished look.
At a time when over-teasing has fallen out of fashion, celebrity stylist Clayton Hawkins has been seen using a Bumpit to add volume-boosting qualities to Gen Z clients such as Leighton Meester. According to celebrity stylist Clayton Hawkins, plastic arc-shaped bump tools like these give their hair that “Blair Waldorf perk.” To achieve the look, divide your hair at the area you wish to create a bump and gently tease it before positioning a bump tool behind your part line – quickly hiding it with natural strands! At first glance, the spot looks entirely natural and chic–no one will be able to tell that it isn’t your voluminous locks! Perfect for adding volume and height to your own hair or something different for special events, this method makes styling quick and straightforward without needing professional assistance.
Bumpits were popular hair accessories in the ’90s and 2000s among celebrities; now, however, they appear to be coming back among TikTok and Instagram influencers who use this plastic headband-esque device to add volume to their styles. Influencers are using these products in posts across platforms such as TikTok and Instagram and sharing posts promoting these items reminiscent of an accessory seen by celebrities at that time. Creating a bump with a Bumpit is simple. First, choose where you would like the spot to reside – some people like creating it at the front or crown of their head; once that decision has been made, gather your hair into a ponytail and smooth over your Bumpit to achieve the desired effect. Tease your hair around the top of a ponytail to give it fullness. For added height, pinch at the base of your bump to push up slightly and comb through. Finally, spray strong hold hairspray over it all to secure its place!
