  2. Once all of your hair is dry, back comb the crown section of your hair to give it additional volume.
  3. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Recommended Products:

I love using the Spornette Little Wonder brush for backcombing. It’s much gentler than a fine tooth comb!

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This look is ideal if you have fine to medium textured hair that is generally on the straighter side. Ask your hairstylist to leave the hair around your face a bit longer, but add a long swoopy side bang.
