How to Get "Piecey" Hair

From Julyne Derrick
Your Guide to Beauty

I've always admired the "piecey" look: The somewhat chunky effect some women have and most of us don't. I wondered, what's the secret to this look? Turns out it's all in the finishing product. Pomades, waxes and putties work to bind hair together, creating a "piecey effect."

How to get it:
It's important to start with dry hair. Rub a small amount of product between hands, then apply to random chunky pieces of hair. It's best to apply product from mid-shaft of hair down. (Get too close to the crown and hair could turn greasy). Separate chunks of hair to create the piecey effect.

This is a great look for short, layered hair but will work on other lengths as well.

Or you could neglect washing your hair for a while, that always works.

Lol, what I do is not wash it for a day, then curl my hair or not, and jump on the trampoline for a few minutes. It saves me a lot of time and then when I get off it, my hair is piecy and all I have to do is spray.

I am currently swearing by the new Pantene Texturize! shampoo line lately... it's cheapo too.
btw- you HAVE to have dry hair or else you end up with a greasy looking mess, on me anyway!!!
you have to use different products depending on the type and length of your hair as well. since i have long hair i have to use either something really light or else it will weigh down my hair.
i like bumble and bumble styling wax, and on the cheaper side the loreal out of bed texturizer.

I blow dry, then flat iron, then ... the most important part... i rub in my hands to warm it up (SUPER important!!!) and start UNDERNEATH, THEN use the last residue on top layers but only focusing on ends and flyaways.

then i rake my fingers though my hair, and use a quick drying spray to keep it looking exactly the same (the Pantene Texturize! hairpsray is really good for that too!)

LOL, who would have thought you could use the trampoline as a styling tool. That's funny.

I use a little cheapo called "Sauve" pomade. It works amazingly! I have redken Lush Whip and it was 5 times the price, just to do the same thing =)

I like Paul Mitchell spray wax. I spray it on the sides of my fingers and run it thru my hair.
