Everyone loves to have full, thick hair and luxuriously voluminous styles. Whether your hair is naturally thick, wavy, straight or fine, a backcombing brush and teasing brush should both be in your styling arsenal.
Here at Paul's Hair World, we stock a wide range of backcombing and teasing brushes. Each is slim line, which makes it ideal for compact storage in a bag, professional hair tools kit, or a washbag. Our brushes are manufactured by the top professional hair styling and grooming brands, so you can be assured of quality and great results.
Backcombing is one of the main hairdressing techniques used by professionals for a variety of purposes. You can use your backcombing brush for general grooming and sectioning as well as back combing. These tools can be used on all types of hair and lengths, to create volume, lift and height.
A backcombing brush can also be used to tame the hair when creating an up-do, and a teasing brush is ideal for adding height and drama.
Remember, the art of backcombing successfully is to work through small sections of the hair in turn, and to start close to the roots. Remember to use a fixing product to help keep your style in place, and invest in a good conditioner or intensive hair mask to help repair and condition your hair cuticles so that they lie flat. Repeated backcombing or vigorous backcombing can cause hair damage - so take it easy and be gentle.
Backcombing can be used for all types of hairstyles. You can gently backcomb your roots to add volume to straight hair, or to increase the impact of an up-do. You can also use the technique to create the classic Sixties beehive! Remember to smooth over non combed sections to cover the backcombed section, so that you create the effect of naturally thick and lustrous hair.
The technique is easy to perfect with practice, and the right finishing shine and hold spray will really make all the difference. Visit our product styling pages to find everything that you need, with all of our products carefully selected from the biggest brands and on sale at the best prices.
