-wash, dry, and brush your hair completely. teasing wet hair increases the likelihood of tearing and damage. if possible, do this while hanging your head upside-down to encourage volume in the roots. if you have time, curl your hair before you start, unless you're looking to create a smooth look, such as a beehive. (:
-separate a single strand or section of hair, moving and clipping the rest out of the way. generally, it's best to start with hair towards the top of the head and work your way down. smaller strands [for example; one inch wide] will make for stiffer volume and will also take longer.
-hold the strand up firmly with one hand and hold a brush gently against the strand, approximately five inches away from the scalp.
-lightly brush towards the scalp while continuing to hold up the strand firmly with your other hand. the strength with which you brush should be firm enough to create tangles that offer resistance, but not too vigorous so that the hair rips or the brush itself becomes tangled.
-repeat the teasing motion until the strand has the desired volume. the curlier the hair, the less teasing will be needed. spritz the teased section with hairspray and let it down gently.
-use your fingers to make a loose 'cage' around the teased section, holding it in place. [but not flattening it]
-lightly brush the un-teased section of the strand down, using only the tips of the brush and making sure not to touch or weigh down the teased section. if you want your hair to look wild and crazy, skip this step.
-put the teased strand aside carefully as you work on teasing other sections of your hair.
-scrunch the hair when you're done teasing for additional volume.
