- Curl the bottom of your hair with a curling iron (#1), just for a slight curl (not necessary but I did for this look)
- Using a rat tail comb (#3), divide the section at the top of your hair that you want to poof.
- Spray that section, with dry shampoo to give it some texture. I used this one which was gifted to me by Salon Grafix (#2) and it worked really well. (as a side note, this dry shampoo does not work well to absorb oil for a “non hair wash day” but works great as a styling product – in my experience at least)
- Tease the part of your hair – with the rat tail comb (#3) – that you want to pull up, paying attention to the underlayers to give it a bigger poof.
- Clip the sides back with bobby pins (#4) at a slightly high part at the back of your head
- Using a round barrel brush (#6), smooth out bumps and pull sightly to give the sides a bit of a poof. I find that the round barrel brushes are easier to do that then a regular brush.
- Gather the middle part that is teased and bobby pin to the same area as the sides are clipped to
- Use the same comb (#3) that you tease with, gently pull out more hair, the more you pull, the bigger the poof will be so make sure not to pull too much!
- I used about 6 or 7 bobby pins to hold up my hair so don’t be afraid to use as many as you need to make sure it’s secure!
- Comb out your bangs and then use a bit of hairspray (#5) to hold everything together and you are good to go!
- Add an “accent” bobby pin (#7) for some sparkle to your hair!
