If you're a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan, then there's no doubt you tuned in to the season finale last week. And yes, it was good. RHOBH star Kyle Richards celebrated the finale by chatting it up with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, and we couldn't take our eyes off her hair. It looked amazing. Granted, Richards is well-known for her long, brown mane, but it looked especially phenomenal last week. As luck would have it, celebrity hairstylist Julius Michael shared how he achieved the "Malibu Kyle" look in a recent Instagram video. His tool of choice for giving Richards' Barbie-inspired big hair? The Voloom Rootie volumizing iron that's available on Amazon.

If you love the look of big, bouncy blowout-style hair, then invest in this volumizing iron. Shoppers who have thin and fine hair rave about how this product can transform their strands right at home. "I have had extremely fine and lifeless hair my entire life," one shopper wrote. "I spent the money [on the Rootie volumizing iron] and let me tell you it is worth it!! I have already had a few people compliment my hair and tell me how whatever I did has changed my whole look! My hair looks healthier. It feels healthier. It’s amazing! It has a TON of body!"

When it comes to most hair tools, most people only think of them as a way to create pin-straight styles. But believe it or not, your flat iron can do so much more. In addition to creating curls and waves, volumizing iron like the Voloom Ceramic Hair Iron can also take flat, lifeless hair to new heights by adding volume.

For Richards' WWHL half updo, Michaels explained that he used the Voloom volumizing iron on both the ponytail and the hair that's left hanging down. "Because I wanted everything to be full and sexy and I only held my Voloom on those sections of hair for about three seconds just to give it, body, bounce, and fullness,” he says.

Turns out that many everyday people love the Voloom volumizing iron as much as celebrity hairstylists. The hair tool has more than 5,100 ratings on Amazon and is rated 4.4 out of 5 stars with thousands of positive customer reviews.

One customer praised this product for helping to restore the volume to hair that thinned due to aging, "My ... hair has thinned ridiculously over the years to the point of having to wear extensions for fullness. I’m so thankful someone was smart enough to design something to give women back their confidence. After using this, it looks like I have double the amount of hair … and that’s without using any hair products! I can’t recommend this enough if you’re like me and need the illusion of more hair. ... Love, love, love this product!"

"This thing is amazing," raved one shopper. "I recently purchased the Voloom hair volumizing tool, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. It’s a little pricey so I was hesitant [about] purchasing it but, after using it for a week straight, I have found that it’s worth every penny. ... The most impressive aspect is the incredible volume it adds to my hair. It's like a salon-quality boost right at home."

Another satisfied customer commented, "[I] was very skeptical at first. [I] used it once and I am sold. I love how easy it is to use. I also love that it gives it some texture and volume without looking tacky. I was worried that it would be noticeable and look crimped, but it doesn't. It is amazing! Gives some volume without a lot of effort."

While lots of shoppers admit that this volumizing iron does a great job of adding an extra boost to lifeless strands, some do question whether it's worth the splurge.

"This product really works. I would of gave this five stars but I did not because I think it is a little too pricey," one person wrote in their review.

Another shopper added, "It does what it says, and better than using a crimper to achieve the same volume. But I don’t think it's worth the cost."

In addition to the mint green hue shown here, the Rootie Volumizing iron is also available in pink and blue. All colors feature the patented checkerboard ceramic plates that add lots of volume to the under-layers of your hair.
