I absolutely love Brigitte Bardot!!!!! I love her color, cut, and the amount of volume her hair always seems to have without looking like too much effort or thought was put into it. She has that whole messy, sexy, “just rolled out of bed looking this hot” kind of look going on that all woman want. . Her whole look is so beautiful and effortless which to me is the most attractive on a woman. Volume like this isnt easy to achieve for those that have fine, flat, lifeless hair. The type of hair that only seems to lose volume directly after you tried your very best to backcomb the crap out of it. Sorry girls not everyone was blessed like Brigitte. But with a few of my tips I’ll be sure to help you achieve volume like this and keep it for hours.
Tips to follow:
1. After shampooing your hair get out of the shower and apply a root lifting spray or mousse. I love Catwalk TIGI root boost spray.
2.Blow dry your hair upside down allowing the dryer to directly hit those roots. By blow drying the hair upside down it allows you to hit the root of your hair in the direction that the roots need to go, which is away from the scalp.
3. Next, section the hair off at the crown and back comb the hair at the root. This will help give your hair height and will give you a base to work with. If you want a ton of volume then you will need to do a ton of backcombing. If you only want a little volume you will need to do minimal backcombing.
This is what it will look like after you have back combed.
4.After you have backcombed your hair, spray the root with hairspray and let dry. I like root volumizing hairspray by Bed Head called Superstar.
5. Now, you will need a boar bristled brush to smooth down the hair after you have backcombed it. You want to smooth the hair down just a tad if your wanting to achieve this look. You want to keep that height but smooth the hair down so that you cant see all your amazing backcombing work.
5. Once the hair is smoothed down spray again with hair spray and wahhhh laaahh! Beautiful Brigitte Bardot hair! Style any way you like and flaunt that gorgeous “effortless” volumized style!!! Enjoy!!
