Go Big Hair or Go Home! No one wants flat to their head hair! A nice size bump will add to your overall style. The extra fullness will balance the style as you are viewed from the front. The bigger you start with your teasing the better. It’s easier to bring a big bump down than try to make it bigger.
The foundation for every beautiful Up Do is the teasing. You need this brush! Not a clever name, it’s just called a Teasing Brush. You can buy them in any beauty store or drug store for a few dollars. The bristles are close together and grab the right amount of hair. The end is pointed so that you can go back into the bump after you smooth to get a little more lift.
You start with 1/4 inch sections just behind the bangs and pull the section toward the face. Start to pull the brush down on the hair about 3 inch up the hair from the scalp. Brush down toward the scalp about 3 or 4 times. Continue to the back the top of the head with these sections, holding the hair forward. You can pick up the previous section with the new section so that they are teased together. Once you have all of your sections done just past the crown of the head, you can pull them all back and smooth over the top. Don’t brush too much or you will remove the fullness.
You can pull down the bump as much as you like. I like to add a couple pins to hold it in place. Once that’s done, you can do a ponytail or continue with the rest of your style. It takes some practice, but you can be a pro in no time!
