Why It’s Chic: It’s not too “done” but it’s definitely structured—definitely not a DIY look! What’s more, the fuller shape is flattering to many facial structures and sizes. A severely scraped-back style is difficult to wear for most women.
Tips: To encourage the texture, rough dry the hair rather than smoothing it completely. Then apply Matrix Design Pulse Mega Dust—it produces a gritty texture that expands the hair, which is perfect for providing an updo with structure. Then create a pincurl set. Once hair cools, release the pins, backcomb and create the shape.
P&P’s Secret: Create a small, square section at the back of the head and gather it into a mini ponytail to serve as the anchor for the rest of the style
