How can you add volume to layered hair?

My hair is long enough to brush against my collar-bone and is cut into long layers, resembling those on my avatar. It is a dirty blonde color, and has on volume at all. It just sits there, flat. I want to be able to wear my hair down and have it look very lush: right out of a Garnier or Pantene commercial. The most time I have is 1/2 an hour and I do have a limited budget.

    The layers need to be slightly shorter on top. Gravity pulls the hair down making it flat with no volume

    Try standing up when drying your hair and tip your head over towards your knees. Drying the hair at the roots like this adds volume. When almost dry tip head back over and style as required

    I used to have the same problem when my hair was short. Try cutting your layers shorter on the top of your head, this will make your hair look bigger. Also, after you shower, apply a volumizing mousse to your roots and then flip your head over and blow dry your hair. Any volumizing mousse from the supermarket or drugstore will work well.

    Use a shampoo and conditioner that adds volume, then use gel and add a little mousse. Blow dry it upside down. Then put your head up and brush and use a big curling iron to add touches, hold your head upside down again and brush, and put your head up and let it fall down, then use an aerosol hairspray. This will hold your style in place.
