News Flash: Backcombing Can Be Beautiful!

Not a lot to say today… instead, I am giving you a weekend challenge: backcombing.

Until recently, I associated backcombing with the 1980’s and Snooki.  But keep your eye out and you’ll find that this hairstyling technique can be truly beautiful.


See what I’m talking about?!

To try it yourself: Grab a small section of hair and, starting about 3 inches from the scalp, use a fine-tooth comb to push it down toward the head.  (It helps to spray it with hairspray.)  Then, smooth it over by brushing very lightly, and continue styling.  It doesn’t have to be super dramatic— even a little bit of volume can add a lot of oomph to your look!

Are you up for trying backcombing this weekend?  Is this a style you normally wear?  Are you convinced that it can be pretty and not “Snooki”?  (Send me photos if you do it!)  And have a great weekend!!
