TEASING BRUSHES

TEASING BRUSH: what is a Teasing Brush?

A TEASING BRUSH, as the name suggests, will “TEASE” your hair by gently fluffing giving hair more dimension and volume. TEASING BRUSHES are used to create the bouffant hair style and the pompadour hairstyle. Teasing or backcombing goes against the direction of the cuticle cells, which if overdone can cause damaged hair.

If you have thin hair and want more volume using a TEASING BRUSH will do just that. A TEASING BRUSH is great for thin hair. By teasing you hair up front for example you can get that fuller look you have been wanting.

TEASING BRUSHES And The Bouffant Hairstyle

Also, if you are into a bouffant hair style (beehive hairstyle) teasing brushes are great for that too. According to Meesh, our in-house hair product analyst, “When First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy was pictured with a bouffant in the early 1960s, the look became extremely popular. Her style was frequently imitated at the time.

According to Paul Mitchell, “Give hair volume and lift with the Teasing Brush, a slim, densely-packed bristle brush with a pointed handle for sectioning hair.

TEASING BRUSHES And Pompadour Hairstyle

Also, TEASING BRUSHES are fantastic for creating the pompadour hairstyle. According to Stacey, our in-house hair care analyst, “A pompadour hairstyle has length and volume on top that is swept back, with the sides and back slicked down or short. Elvis Presley was one of the most well-known people to sport a pompadour.

To get the super volume that lasts all day, let your barber know ahead of time that you want to get that pompadour hairstyle look and to cut your hair so that the back part of your hair supports the front. You can’t get the back flat and cut short when the front is longer. To achieve the pompadour look, the back must help the front. Now that your hair is a little longer in the back, you should blow-dry the back of your head upward to support the front. In the back, use the upside-down hairdryer trick as well. This is known as the hair stacking method, and it works very well to give you the all-day volume right away.

Is Teasing Hair Damaging?

Over teasing can lead to hair damage. When teasing you are going against the direction of the cuticle cells, which can remove the cuticle cells from the hair fiber. The objective of teasing is to get more lift up front and add more volume. There are other ways to get more volume up front without having to tease hair. But it all starts with your stylist. You need a hair cut that supports this style and then using hair-styling products you can create more volume with the damage.
