Step 1: Blow dry Blow-dry your hair completely straight and follow with a flat iron. Ratting wavy or curly hair may tangle or damage it. Step 2: Detangle Brush your hair thoroughly with a boar bristle brush to remove tangles. Make sure your hair is cool before styling. Step 3: Start at the crown Section your hair into 2-inch sections at the crown and clip the rest back out of the way. Spray hairspray on the sections to be teased. Step 4: Backcomb Hold the section straight up in the air with one hand. With the other hand, use a rattail or metal comb to comb hair near the roots downward toward the scalp in short strokes along the backside of hair. Repeat for all sections. Tip Prevent damage to overworked hair by using a gentle, flat-backed, natural bristle brush instead of a comb. Step 5: Smooth and spray Smooth the teased sections with the brush and set with a generous amount of hairspray. Step 6: Style Play with different styles. Curl the ends and wear a headband for a 60s, retro look or pull it back into a more modern and glamorous low ponytail with a coated elastic band. Did You Know? High hair was all the rage in the sixties. The 1760s, that is. Marie Antoinette took it to new heights, wearing elaborate hairstyles that lifted her hair 3 feet.
