How to Use a Teasing Brush

By Kathryn Hatter

While many women think of a rattail comb at the mention of teasing hair, exceptional results can come from a teasing brush. Long and thin with only three rows of bristles, a teasing brush can create volume and lift in hair without damaging your fine strands. Use a teasing brush to give your hairstyle an extra boost. With careful styling, you can avoid damage and pump up your hair.

Tease hair with a teasing brush.

Step 1

Brush your hair through with the paddle brush to detangle and make it smooth.

Step 2

Separate a 2 to 3-inch section at the crown and hold it straight up. Brush this hair with the paddle brush to make it smooth.

Step 3

Hold the teasing brush in your hand while holding the hair section straight up.

Step 4

Brush backward with the teasing brush on the underside of the hair section to tease the section of hair slowly. As you brush backward with the brush, let the teased hair fall down.

Step 5

Spray the teased hair lightly with hairspray to give it additional texture.

Step 6

Continue teasing the hair with the teasing brush, until the entire section falls onto your other hair.

Step 7

Separate another 2 to 3-inch section at the crown of your head and tease this section, if you wish.

Step 8

Smooth the top of the hair with the paddle brush to make it blend with the rest of your hair. Brush your teased hair very lightly so it does not lose its volume.

Step 9

Spray your hair with hairspray to set the style.
