You Will Need
- A blow dryer
- A flat iron
- A brush
- A rattail or metal comb
- Hair clips
Straighten your hair by blow-drying and flat ironing wavy or curly locks.
Brush your hair to remove all tangles. Don’t try to style hair that isn’t completely de-tangled.
Create volume at the crown
Using the comb, divide the hair into two-inch sections at the crown and clip the rest back out of the way. If hair is too silky, spritz a little hairspray on the sections to be teased.
Hold hair straight up and backcomb
Hold the section straight up in the air with one hand. With the other, comb downward near the roots in short strokes. Repeat in a section just below this one for added oomph.
Smooth and spray
Smooth teased sections lightly with the brush and use hairspray to keep your style in place.
Have fun styling
Have fun shaping your new do in a variety of styles. You can curl it for a vixenish look or put it in a low ponytail for a casual chic vibe.
