5 Ways To Use A Teasing Brushfeaturing Spornette
The teasing brush is a versatile styling MVP in your collection of beauty tools. Today, we’re highlighting five of the best ways to use this salon superstar!
1. Pump up the VolumeIf you want to pump up your client’s volume without sacrificing their style, a teasing brush is the way to go, especially for fine hair that tends to lay flat against the head. To achieve maximum volume using a teaser brush:
- Section off the top half of the hair using the tip of your teasing brush handle.
- Working in 1-inch sections, backcomb the back side of each section at the base, using short strokes. Pro tip: use a loose grip when backcombing, which will allow the brush to glide more easily.
- Gently smooth over the top, and repeat until all sections are done.
2. Tame FlyawaysWe’ve all been there - you’re about to send your client out the door with their gorgeous new look when you notice a pesky flyaway (or two). No problem - start with some taming spray to help control the hair and give it some extra hold. Then, use a Spornette Little Wonder Teasing Brush to gently coax the hair into place. The key is to be gentle - too much force will only make the problem worse. With a little patience, you’ll be able to tame even the most unruly flyaways.
3. Accentuate Baby HairsBaby hair looks continue to reign supreme, and for good reason - edge styling is great for adding volume and texture and can be the perfect finishing touch to add some added value on a client’s finished look. To help finesse these hairs into place, apply your favorite volumizing product to the tips of your hair, then comb them into place with a teasing hair brush. Once the baby hairs are shaped, you can cover them with a Sanek Strip and lock in the style with a blow dryer and some hairspray.
4. Create Sleek & Smooth Updos
Teasing brushes are the perfect tool for creating super sleek and slicked-back updos (you know, the ones your clients see on their favorite celebs and request when they sit in your chair). To achieve this look:
- Start with clean, damp hair.
- Brush through from root to tip in long strokes, working from the back of the head until all the hair is brushed out.
- Add a little styling product (like hairspray or gel) to the roots and use the hair teaser brush to smooth.
- Create volume at the crown by lifting small sections of hair with the brush handle and pushing them back into place.
- Finish with hairspray for extra hold.
5. Smooth Part Line And More
Need to perfect that sleek updo for a formal occasion? Use your teasing brush to smooth out part lines to create an elegant look. For irregular or fine part lines, use your brush to backcomb and add volume to the part line area, which will help conceal any irregularities.
