DIY: Voluminous Waves

How does beauty blogger Cat ( transform her super-straight, flat hair into full, bouncy waves? It's all in her strategic teasing technique, which creates layers of volume and lift!



Step 1: Separate hair into top and bottom sections and use a butterfly clip to secure top section.

Step 2: Use a 1¼ inch barrel curling iron to curl bottom sections away from your face; repeat on both sides. Using the same technique, curl the top portion of your hair.

Step 3: Lift a center section of hair upwards and spritz with hairspray. Use a bristle teasing brush—not a comb—to tease section in an up-and-down motion. Repeat with the section directly behind the first section.  

Step 4: Repeat with small sections at the side of your head.  

Step 5: Push sections back with hands and spray with hairspray, smoothing flyaways with your palms.
