Are your client's debating between wearing their hair up or down for a special occasion? Why not combine the two! L'Oreal Professionnel shows you how to create a Modern Day Bouffant using their Tecni-Art products that will give your clients instant volume and glam.

  1. Pre-set hair with a large barrel iron and Volume Envy Extra. Cool hair to set and brush out with a wide tooth comb.
  2. Spray Infinium 4 over lengths of the hair.
  3. Over-direct hair toward the center and back-brush the base to build the most height on the surface of the hair.
  4. Direct hair loosely with a hairpin toward the crown of the head, secure with a sewing motion.
  5. Release tendrils around the face.
  6. Stylist Tip: Less is NOT more! When it comes to back-brushing mid-lengths and ends build maximum volume—it’s easier to smooth out than add more in already textured hair.
