Celebrity hairstylist David Dang here showing you a tease and back comb look. To get our look what we're going to be doing is using our L'Oreal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty. So let's get started. Our first step is to have a little bit of a wave already preset. So Lauren here I already curled her hair, gave it more of like a beachier wave and what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and tease next. So what I'm going to use is a hair comb and hairspray just to start. So I'll take a section of her hair, just spray some hairspray in, not too much and use the finer side of the comb, start teasing from the top and then work your way to the bottom. It's okay to have those piecey looks, just combine them by keep holding them and teasing them. So to create the look that we're going for which is almost like Victoria's Secret runway, but with that teased ratted look, we're going to go ahead and combine these together. You know a lot of people wonder like how these Victoria Secret models get their look, all they do is put waves, create waves, beachy waves and start to just tease and the key is not to touch your hair, you know, once you start teasing, don't touch your hair anymore and as you can see, Lauren is already starting to get volume, that quick and then you just use your hairspray, just spray it down and then move onto the next section. Once again once you tease the front you start to get that Alessandra Ambrosio look, Adriana Lima, even Jozelle. This is the ultimate look that girls are going for now, ratted, but a little more tame, you know, teased and back combed a little bit more and so as you can tell, the volume is already there, amazing. So then you move to the back and you do the same motions. Go ahead and section, just to work more efficiently, tease on the top to the bottom and as you can tell, I'm not working really hard, it's more effortless than anything. You just keep moving to a back and forth motion and then just move that back and forth and you create all these waves and volume. Alright, let's see what she looks like, bam. Now you want to use a texturizing cream. So we're going to use our texturizing cream, remember, less is more, not too much and again we're not creating volume at the crown area but we're creating volume at the base. Just put it in your hands and put any of those flyaways down. But when you do your flyaways, remember to keep it at an upward motion. Once again, you put your flyaways down and you pull up in an upward motion, giving it still volume and then just kind of run it through. Remember the lighter you use, the better it's going to stay. So this is such an easy way of doing beachy Victoria's Secret looks. You know, you can live it, wear it, breathe it on like a date or when you're going out to look really special with the girlfriends for a drink and again this is so easy to work. There you have it. This is how you back comb and tease hair. This is David Dang, celebrity hairstylist. We'll catch you here next time.
