1. Starting wherever you are comfortable, take a 1.25-inch barrel curling iron and twist sections of hair that are equal in width around the iron, away from the face. Curl the entire head of hair. If you don’t have the time, cheat and just curl the pieces around your face and a few in the back.
  2. Section hair from temple to temple and clip. Take 1.5-inch sections of hair, stretch away from the scalp and tease using a fine tooth comb. You tease hair by dragging the comb against the grain of the hair towards the scalp. The tighter you pack the hair, the more volume the hair will have. Concentrate your teasing efforts along the crown of the head.
  3. Once you have teased the hair, particularly the sections around the crown, grab sections of hair, lifting them away from the scalp, and spray texture spray an inch from the roots as you drop the sections so that the section meets the cloud of product. Repeat until you have sprayed the entire head of hair. Using this technique encourages volume, rather than weighing the hair down with an overzealous application of product.
  4. Using your fingertips, massage the scalp to gently loosen the style.
