As a stylist, it's important to be able to take your client's hair to the next level. Whether it's to create an intricate updo or a bouncy, voluminous blowout, backcombing is an essential skill to master.
We spotted Saretta Bowerman's (@hairbysaretta) color expertise on Instagram long before we found out she's also a master of braided styles and updos, and in 2017 named her as part of our MODERN SALON 100.
The Florida-based stylist has since solidified her styling skills and uses her platform to educate fellow stylists on key tips and tricks to being successful. When Bowerman begins a style, she always grabs one essential tool: her Jatai Teasing Comb.
"The comb is so versatile," she says. "I use it for styling, coloring, brushing out, teasing—I'm in love!"
Featuring 100% Japanese stainless steel pins, the comb's pin structure and pattern enables high volume teasing and gentle detangling. It's also thermal-, rust- and chemical-resistant, and it features an ABS resin handle with a pointed sectioning end. It's antistatic, and the coated pins won't scratch your client's scalp or break hairs.
In addition to helping her with her styling needs, Bowerman says the comb has solved the issue of clients who have hair that will not tease without a bunch of volume powder.
"This comb has solved that issue for good," she says. "It doesn't compact the tease as much as a regular rat tail comb, and it doubles as a detangling comb, too. My tools are so important to me, and this gets the job done for coloring and styling."
Below, Bowerman shows the teasing comb in action and how it helped her to create this stunning three-strand, pull-through braid:
