Hi I'm Jenny Balding, professional hairstylist. Today I'm going to show you how to tease your hair and make it stay. So creating this look is really easy. The only tools you'll need is a small boar bristle brush and some light hairspray. So Robin has fine textured hair and it's really quite soft as well. So to create volume you really need to use a little bit of a product like a light hairspray just to really get some grip in the hair before you even start back combing. For that added texture and grip I'm going to use Redken's Forceful 23. So I'm just adding the spray into the hair, lightly, just make sure you keep it from a distance because you don't want to get too close to concentrate any spray in any area at this point. You're just really aiming to add some texture to the hair. So now I've sprayed the hair and prepared it with a little texture. I'm going to start right at the crown area here which is where we need the volume and show you how you can just back brush your hair and not take it into that back combing technique I was talking about. So just section off, work with this area right here where your crown is, and then just underneath that, that's where I'm going to start taking sections so we can build up the volume throughout that area. So just take probably about an inch and a half wide section, lifting up the hair and then placing with your hands, just lightly bringing it down to the root area because this is just the softer way than actually using a comb. It will also brush out really easily so you don't damage the hair also. Brush lightly, and you can see already, just with that one section we've got instant volume. So I'm going to back brush just to about here on the head because it's really working probably about to the ear level which is going to be the most flattering amount of hair to fall slightly back to give it extra volume. So as you can see with Robin's hair, because it's fine textured, you've definitely got some more volume, some movement through it and it gives it a bit more of a natural volume look to it so you haven't got this too much. When you're back combing sometimes it can get to big just in the one area. By back brushing it's going to be easy to brush out plus it gives you a more natural volumous effect. And there you go, and this is how you back comb hair and make it stay. I'm Jenny Balding and thank you for watching.
