For step-by-step instructions,
  • Step 1: Using a soft bristled hair brush, give your head a thorough brushing until all tangles and knots are gone.
  • Step 2: Next, take a metal comb or teasing brush and divide hair into two-inch sections. Set the section you are about to tease aside, and clip the rest so it stays out of the way.
  • Step 3: In one hand, hold the section of hair you are going to work with by the ends. Make sure the hair is straight up in the air so that you can access the area underneath. Using your free hand, take the comb and back-comb your hair in short strokes in the opposite direction from which it grows.
  • Step 4: Pick up the next section of hair and repeat the process until all of the desired sections of hair have been teased. When you are done, gently smooth hair over with the comb and generously spray your hair with a firm hold hairspray to ensure longer lasting volume.

Teasing the hair makes me cringe a little... I can just imagine all the little hairs breaking. >.<

Oh man....I am a tease-a-holic. My technique is a little different. I think the metal combs or "rat tail" combs cause more breakage. I use a little bristle brush to rat the underside of my hair, then I smooth out the top layer. I generally prep my hair first with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray and maybe a light hold hairspray too. Works well, beehive stays in place and my hair is still soft.

i always prep with an ol' skool mousse, (it worked in the 80's with my rocket high bangs), blow dry upside till mostly dry, set in extra large velcros (the 2" purple ones), blow dry till totally dry, and then each velcro section i tease, spraying while teasing with a good aerosol hairspray... except the front piece, i smooth that over my big hair mess with a small soft bristle brush.

great post. I usually always tease my hair when I go out at night cause otherwise my hair will fall even more flat during the night. But I can never get it REAL big.

Thanks for the tips, brewgirl..I remember this is the technique hairstylists use when they wanna get the hair real big for an updo or so

i used to tease my hair into a "pomp" i think its called. I used to do it a lot but kind of stopped because of how bad it is for my hair. but the structure of my hair never changed so i dont think i damaged it to much

nevertheless, great tips!

Unless you constantly bleach your hair...and dont take care of it then maybe you might have breakage. But you only tease the root and that is where your hair is the healthiest

I've tried doing this before but my hair always falls flat. I'll try the recommended products- maybe that will help keep it in place

a lot of women get the extreme volume with socks or even rollers...can you imagine walking around with little rollers in your hair for the extreme teased look

Definitely be careful when washing teased hair to avoid breakage!
