How-To: Contemporary Bouffant

Contemporary Bouffant

  1. Pre-set hair with a large barrel iron and Volume Envy Extra. Cool hair to set and brush out with a wide tooth comb.
  2. Spray Infinium 4 over lengths of the hair.
  3. Over-direct hair toward the center and back-brush the base to build the most height on the surface of the hair.
  4. Direct hair loosely with a hairpin toward the crown of the head, secure with a sewing motion.
  5. Release tendrils around the face.

Stylist Tip: Less is NOT more! When it comes to back-brushing mid-lengths and ends build maximum volume — it’s easier to smooth out than add more in already textured hair.
