Hi, my name is Claire. I’m a hairdresser. I’m going to show you how to style your hair with volume without it looking old fashioned. I’m going to be using a teasing comb. I’m also going to be using a little bit of dry shampoo, hairspray, and a curling iron. First thing we’re going to do is we’re going to take the dry shampoo and just hit the roots of your hair. It’s going to help to take out any of the oil that you have that might have been built up from your hair. And, just spray about six to eight inches away from your scalp – away from the strands. And, just spray. And, move the section, spray. Doesn’t have to be perfect. You just want to make sure to hit the roots. And, you’re just going to let that dry. While it’s drying, you’re going to use your one-inch curling iron, and you’re just going to take sections and do a rope curl. Open up your clamp on your iron, and curl away from your face, twisting and wrapping your hair around the barrel. And, we want to start the curling not too close to the root – it’s going to be about three inches away from the root. And, you’re just going to get all the sections of your hair, wrap and twist. There we go. And, once you curl all of your hair, you’re going to take sections. I would actually start by flipping most of your hair over, at least from the, like, crown part of your head. Okay, and just section that off. This is basically where you’re going to be putting the volume into your hair. Alright, so, we’re going to take a small section, spray the roots with a little bit of hairspray. And then, we’re going to use your teasing comb, and tease. Starting from the base of the root, you’re just going to press the comb into your hair and push down. And, make sure to pull taut on the top on the ends of your hair. And, you also want to over-direct the hair away, like, from the way that it naturally grows, because when you bring it back over, you’re going to get that kind of volume. And, it looks a little crazy, but you’re going to tame it down, so don’t worry if it starts to get a little out of control. And, you’re just going to keep doing the same thing. And then, once you get the amount of volume that you desire, you’re just going to kind of smooth the rest of your hair over, see what needs left to be teased, and give volume. And, you can do it a little bit in smaller sections, just to see where you need a little bit extra lift. So, once you’re finished teasing, just kind of smooth over the hair on top, finding the shape that you want. And, that is how you style your hair with volume without it looking old fashioned.
