Pump That Poof!

You look on T.V. and in magazines and wonder how all of these girls have poofs with an immense amount of volume.  “How do I get that look?  I NEED VOLUME, TOO!”  Now you are running out of the house to buy shampoo, conditioner, and hairspray that promises big hair after use.  You attempt the poof again and it flops to the side.

You start crying.  Your arms are shaking from holding them up for so long.  Frustration isn’t even the word. “Why did I even get out of bed this morning if my hair won’t go right?  This day sucks.  I have the worst life ever.  Can’t I just be Eva Longoria?” HOW DO I GET ONE OF THOSE POOFS?!?”

Girl, you have to tease your mane!  Take the amount of hair that you want to put in a poof and clip it up out of the way.  Put the rest of your hair in a ponytail so your hair is separated.  Un-clip the top and then grab the whole section by the ends.  Pull that part straight up and make sure to pull it tight.  Now, grab a bristle brush and run it through the back of the hair you are holding.  This will create the volume that you need to pump your poof up.

Let the rest of your hair loose so now the sections are not split in two anymore.  Start to stick bobby pins into the teased hair.  (push the opening of the bobby pin towards your forehead)  When you push the pins in be sure to push your hair too.  This will add even more volume to your hair.  Put as many bobby pins in as you need just make sure that you can’t see them or it will look a little tacky.  Don’t over-do the do!  Snooki can pull it off but just stick with the classy medium-sized poof!

Let us know how it works out for you.
