When you have fine hair, getting a gorgeous, full-looking style can be tough - you primp it, tousle it, and blow it out, but it just keeps falling flat. Next time you're styling freshly clean, dry hair, try this simple trick for a little extra oomph.
1. Separate your hair. Run a comb down and part your hair about an inch away from your regular part. This keeps the teased portion of your hair hidden.
2. Backcomb it with a toothbrush. Gently tease your roots at the crown along your parted hair using a clean, unused toothbrush. Yes, really - a toothbrush! The bristles are soft and small, making the added lift subtler and allowing you to retain more control than you would be able to with a regular hairbrush. (You don't want totally '80s hair after all, do you?)
3. Repeat. Flip your part to the other side and tease it gently again.
4. Part normally. Voila! More volume without any messiness.
