    To do this style, you must have clean hair. So it is recommended that you take a shower before hand. After you do this, comb tangles out of wet hair. Apply a volumizing mousse and heat protectant. This will be all the product you need. Clip three sections of the top layer of you hair. Blow dry the bottom layer of your hair with a round brush until it is completely dry.

  • It is more casual to wear this style less voluminous to school or work.

  • Teasing is very damaging to your hair. Try not to do it often, and on the days you do tease it, use lots of conditioner.
