HOW TO Create Volume At The Crown Properly

Maggie Mulhern | May 24, 2014 | 7:02 AM

L'Oreal Professionnel Artist Drew Schaefering has learned that creating volume at the crown is not only on trend, but it creates a beautiful shape and can balance just about any look.

"To build a shape, backcombing is essential," he says. "Although this appears to be a simple process, it takes practice to do it properly."

Schaefering takes fine sections and directs forward slightly. "For proper lift, you must pack the hair tightly," he says. "The tigher I pack, the stronger the shape."

Schaefering works back and forth within wide sections, packing the hair with a fine tooth comb. He then takes another section in front of the packed sections which he backcombs lightly to use as a softer veil to the front.

In this short video he demonstrates his method showing HOW TO create the perfect lift at the crown.
