A lot of my hair clients say they always have a hard time back combing their hair like I do it and make it stay. So I thought this would be a great blog post because I am sure many people would like to know how to back comb, the right and professional way to make it last ALL day!? Today I will show you step by step on how to do it right. I wish I could upload a video then I wouldn’t have to type so much instructions. One of these days I will get it to work!!
Step one here is what you need to use to get the best results and the support to make it last ALL day.
When your hair is wet spray Redken Guts (CLICK HERE)
on the sides and back of the top of your head. I do two sections on each side and back because that is where you will be placing your back combing and it will be the support for all the back combing.
Blow dry your hair head down for the most volume
after its all dry, you can see around the top I already have some volume but just wait….=)
Take a section about an inch thick on the top/back of head. Have good tension on the section and back comb with a fine toothed comb about 2 inches up the section.
Every section that you back comb spray some Kenra 25 hairspray (CLICK HERE)
at the root underneath
Next do it on the side
(not front side yet, just under and to the side of the back to give you a nice shape and support)
You want to have a nice roundness to the shape and not a big drop off if that makes sense
Then do two sections on each side toward the front…yes it looks messy but TRUST ME!!
OK all done go out like this….j/k BUT, let me tell you if your hair isn’t this crazy before the next step, girl you don’t have enough back combing tension going on. It needs to be this big to have the support to last all day!!
Now here is where the magic happens. I call this my grandma comb because my grandma always had a comb like this growing up. This will be your BEST FRIEND when it comes to back combing.
Start at the back on top and smooth over with the “Magic comb”
You will feel like you are combing out all the back combing but you are not. You have the support of the guts, hair spray and back combing all in one =)
This is to show you that you want a nice smooth bend from top to bottom so it isn’t all messy looking
Work on the other side to smooth it
Make sure you go all the way down to the ends of your hair so it is super smooth
TA DA!!! This technique is for short or long hair. I promise if you use these products and my steps you will have back combing last all day long. =)
