Hump or bump hairstyles offer a modern, edgy take on the bouffant and beehive styles of the 1950s. Today's hump hair combines teased updo with relaxed hair for a sexy look that's on trend for ladies with short or long hair. If you don't make your hump properly by following some basic starting rules, you risk damaging your hair and breaking off strands. Start safe to rock the hump trend.


Make sure your hair is thoroughly dry before you begin. Don't try to get your hump on with wet hair, because that can damage your locks.


Brush your hair before you begin, removing all tangles.


Decide where you want to make your hump. Most celeb hump styles -- like Rihanna's or Kim Kardashian's -- bump up the whole front.


Section the rest of your hair up with clips, just to get it out of the way.


Pick up a section of hair that's 1 to 2 inches wide. Using a rat tail comb, brush the hair backward from the ends toward the roots. Keep brushing to tease the hair. Keep combing till you get the height you want for a baby bump or mega-hump. The more you brush, the more height you get. Once you like it, spritz some hairspray so the hair maintains its volume.


Tease out the remaining sections in your bump.


Pin the teased sections back in a half-back hump style that shows off your hump. While the half back is the preferred celeb way to wear the hump hairstyle, women with shorter hair can brush back their hump.
