How to back-comb

• Separate a 2-inch section of dry hair in the area where you want volume and hold it vertically.
• Insert a slim brush or fine-tooth comb into the back of the section about two inches above the scalp, and slowly, yet firmly, push the brush toward your scalp. Remove brush, insert again, and repeat once or twice more. Move the brush downward only (going up and down quickly—a.k.a. teasing—can damage hair).
• Repeat with a few more sections until you create a small, puffed-up area, then arrange non-back-combed strands over the section so the top looks smooth.
