Hi, I'm Daniela Rowson, I'm a hairstylist. I'm going to show you how to do a pompadour on straight hair. The products that we will need are, hairspray, a teasing comb and bobby pins. So, our first step will be sectioning the crown of your hair. And it doesn't have to be perfect, you can use your fingers, if you like. And then, we're going to start at the very front. And then, pull it forward, and then we're going to start teasing and then, right away we want to hairspray. And then, we'll take the next section and do the same thing. So, we'll start back combing, pull it forward, and spray. Then, we'll do one more section, start back combing again, and spray. And then, we'll pull it back. Our next will be be, combing back the hair a little bit, and we want to gather it together. And if you have a few unruly hairs, you can spray them, so they'll stay in place. So, one the hair is gathered, you want to grab your bobby pins, and just put them across on one side. And we'll do another one on the other. So, the key item to have for your pompadour, is have a really good teasing comb and tease a lot. My name is Daniela Rowson, and thanks for watching.
