What styling tools do you need to create big hair? A teasing comb, hairspray, and there is a miracle product I love from Eufora called Powder Lift. It really helps to give the volume you need to create big, bold hair.
Back in the ’80s it was all about teasing to create volume, has that changed? Yes, thank goodness! Nowadays we have a number of great products to help achieve big hair while maintaining the integrity and health of the hair. Today’s hairstylists’ are gentler than back in the day when it comes to teasing. There’s also less teasing on a daily basis which certainly helps.
Are there any tricks of the trade when it comes to working with specific hair types to achieve this look? For this specific hairstyle, it’s better to have clean hair to work with, it’s easier to tease and you have more control of the hair.
Big hair is a throw back to a more coiffed, put-together era, what do you like about this style? I think the hairstyle is an excellent match for many of the design trends we are seeing for Autumn/Winter 2015. Personally, when I see this style, I see someone who is powerful and fearless. The “Big Hair” woman projects a specific type of elegance and style—a nod to the past with an eye on the future.
