Max Made


Building weightless volume in to our hair without backcombing our freshly conditioned strands into knots, has never been easier. It’s as simple as arming yourself with the right tools to fight flat, limp, and stringy hair. No need to slog through the myriad of product out there, as Maxmade has done it for you!



Brush-up a hair-storm like no other, with brush royalty itself. Handmade with the finest, premium-grade boar-bristle, designed to distribute the natural oils while exfoliating the scalp and stimulating circulation of the hair follicles. That aside, this is the go-to brush for stylists when brushing curls into volumes of weightless waves – like you see above. A life-time investment, my M&P has not missed a beat 8yrs in.



Volume at the roots offers inarguable glamour, but is by no means effortless. But, where there is a will there is a Kérastase Lift Vertigo. If you have super-fine, flat/limp hair, or thick heavy hair that is impossible to keep volume in, this product has your name all over it. Get down to the root of the issue and give your hair what it needs to perform at it’s best.
Tip; Section hair into 4 sections – Top, left side, right side and finally the back. Massage a pee-size amount of product between your fingers and then through the roots of one of the section – before blowdrying. Less is more in this sky-high challenge!


NAK Dry Klean

If there is one product that is more important when building an air-rated bouncy hair, it’s the Dry Shampoo. Designed to refresh day-old hair by removing any oil from the roots, this products is key when also building volume and texture. Spray through the roots and mid-lengths after tonging and brush through – with your new Mason & Pearon Brush – for salon worthy waves. Suited for all hair types, NAK (sulphate & Parabin free) Dry Klean is as kind on your scalp and hair as it is KEY to making hair bigger, bader and better than ever before.


Label. m Resurrection Style Dust

Given the title of the Miracle Powder, this particular product is probably one of the biggest game changers in hair styling in the last 5 years. Made up of tiny, easy to blend, weightless particles that wrap around the shaft of the hair – forcing the hair to stand to attention. Simply tap through the roots where you need a little assistance – like you would a salt shaker – before back-combing, or you can massage with your fingers to activate and give a whole new meaning to the word VOLUME.



What if I told you there was a product that protects, strengthens, and makes your hair healthier when blow drying? What if I also told you there was a product that cut down blow drying time, and made hair 3 x stronger – resulting in 24hr lasting volume? Well there is and here it is. Hot off the press Redken’s Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer has got all these bases covered and more. Simple spray on to damp hair – roots to ends – and start blow drying for bigger, healthier stronger hair in no time flat.
