We are going to start the styling tutorial after you get out of the shower. A great way to start is to get them loose in your hand and start rubbing it at your roots. This is going to give you the volume that you need to have a fabulous style. A palm-full of mousse is more than enough to get the style that you need. It does concentrate at the roots but it’s going to eventually make its way down the shaft. After you have applied the mousse, it’s good to clip the top half of your hair up.
You are going to take around brush injure blow dryer and you’re going to start with the shorter layers of your hair. Because the hairs are so short, they can tend to stick out so you want to get them under control as soon as possible so that they don’t dry crazy. It’s best to do this with the blow dryer because you might have a hard time straightening them with the flat iron later.
Once the bottom layer of your hair is dry, you can unclip the top. It’s always best to flip your hair upside down in order to dry it because it will help with volume. Start with your roots because that’s where you want to get root volume. Once the roots are dry you can get the rest of the hair about the 65% dry before you flip it over.
When you stand back up, you can use your hands as well as the round brush to dry the rest of your hair. The great thing about the round brush is that it will help you to smooth out your hair as it dries. This also helps to prevent little flyaway hairs.
Once your hair dries, you can clip the top half up again. Grab your flat iron because we are going to start straightening your hair.

You cannot only use your flat iron to straighten your hair but it’s pending on how you like to wear your hair you can also use the flat iron to slightly curl the bottom half of your hair under to give it a more edgy style. Finish straighten your hair all over.
Next, you want to take your teasing comb so that you can start teasing your roots. You’re going to want to backcomb your roots in three-inch sections around the part of your hair. This is going to give you some volume at your roots so that your hair doesn’t lay flat throughout the day. Especially if you happen to have thin hair, you want to have as much volume on top as you can get. You can start by backcombing a section on each side of the part of your hair. You can start at the front and start working your way back. If you find that you still need volume after you’ve teased the part, you can go over it a second time, teasing the areas that have already been teased. It may look a little bit crazy at first but you are going to end up with voluptuous hair.
It’s always a good idea to hairspray roots so that the teasing that you have done has stayed in place. You can pull the strands of hair up and hold it for several seconds so that the hairspray can dry a little bit before you let it back down. As we all know, hair tends to fall throat the day and as we said before if you happen to have thin hair, it’s likely to fall sooner rather than later. By doing this little tip, you are likely to keep volume in your hair longer periods of time. Once you finish hairspray in the area, you are going to take you around brush again and very lightly brush over the top layer of hair just enough to smooth it. You want to take away the messy areas from the teasing you don’t want to flatten your hair out in any way. You are just smoothing it while keeping the volume in place.

They’ll work pretty much the same so it’s up to you as to what kind of brand you want to try out. You get what you pay for, however. So it’s best not to get the cheapest brand that’s on the shelf.
