Yeah, can someone please tell me how to backcomb? I've tried soooo many times and cannot achieve it!

1. Spray the hair with an hairspray first and let it dry.

2. Using a tail comb, part off a section of hair from the rest of the strands. Smaller sections will be tighter and longer lasting backcombing. Clip the rest of your hair out of the way.

3. Hold the hair straight up or over directed in your left hand with your comb in your right (providing you are right handed.)The object is to comb the hair down the opposite from how it grows. So, with your right hand, comb from the ends of your hair down to the scalp in strokes. Repeat this until all the hair looks teased. You can feel the backcombed hair to see if it is sufficient (it will feel thicker if you have used smaller sections.) Spray the teased section with a hairspray and go on to the next section.

4. If you want a more solid and long lasting style, hold the new section forward so that when you backcomb you are actually grabbing a bit from the last backcombed section. This will make it more solid and also prevent "holes" in your heightened style.

5. When all hair is teased, take a paddle brush and smooth the hair down. Take care to not brush too hard since you only want to smooth the very top layer.
