What a Tease!

Hey everyone, Liesl here with a quick styling tip on how to tease your hair. There are many ways to tease your hair but this is the way I do it and it can last all day if done properly.
I love to use just a normal styling comb when I tease. I have purchased many different kinds of teasing combs and brushes but I always go back to the normal comb that has one side fine tooth and the other bigger. I tried to show it in this picture below. Also you will need a good quality hairspray. My fav is Kenra aerosal hairspray (I like the super hold for teasing)but there are many others out there. Just make sure your hairspray dries fast and is not too wet.


Now for the teasing part. I usually just tease the top part of my hair. I usually do 2 to 3 pieces in the back and 1 to 2 on each side. On this picture below I already had done a slice of hair underneath the piece I have up.
So you start by holding a slice of hair up and spray it lightly with some hairspray at the base where you will be teasing.


Then with the fine tooth part of your comb you start in the middle or a couple inches from your scalp and push down with your comb 2 to 6 times.

Then you hairspray lightly again the part you just teased and put your can of hairspray underneath that tease for a second to let it dry and hold into place. This step actually helps a ton!

Ha ha see how nice it stays:) Just please don't leave it that way!

Now with the bigger tooth side of the comb I gently come over the top of the tease so that the teased part is hidden. Please please hide it! I hate when I see a rats nest in someone's hair. Don't make it look like you teased your hair.

Now here is the before and after.
Please excuse my straggly hair in the pics, I couldn't find my straightener this morning and was in a hurry. But you can get the idea.
I'm definitly not a big haired person but with my fine hair I need the tease to simply put some texture and a little something extra up top. It also holds my hair in place so I'm not feeling frumpy in an hour after I've done my hair.

So there is my ghetto tutorial:)
I hope it makes sense and helps any of you that struggle with teasing your hair.
Happy Teasing:)

Come visit me so you can make my hair pretty for a day. I can never do it like you do. I'll have to have Jess look at this and see if she can have mercy on her Mom.

Blast to the past! They say everything old is new again; if only that applied to people, LOL. It was probably 40ish years ago ads about how to tease and about Pssssst dry spray shampoo were in every magazine. I know I'm showing my age, but I don't care. Do you use empty, washed soup/beer cans for rollers? That was big then, too. :-) 56 y.o. friend, Janet
