TRESemme provides the perfect tools for you to #AmpUpYourStyle. My go-to style for effortless amped up perfection is… the pouf! We could call it a pompadour if you want to get technical, but pouf does the trick, too. I think it’s the easiest, most versatile look you can whip up to become an instant rock star. There are a lot of different ways to achieve this look though. See below to see how I do it!
Step 1: Shampoo and condition hair with a volumizing shampoo like TRESemme 24 Hour Body Shampoo and Conditioner. Towel dry hair and apply a dollop of TRESemme Climate Protection Mousse. Scrunch throughout the hair, concentrating on the root area.
Step 2: Blowdry your hair upside down. You might look like you have a crazy lion mane when you flip your hair back up. Don’t panic – this is all part of the plan to amp up your style! The crazy body provided by doing this will provide a solid foundation for the pouf.
Step 3: Separate your fringe (or bangs) area into a triangular section. Clip the rest of your hair out of the way.
Step 4: Starting from the back of the triangle section, slice out thin horizontal partings of hair. Spray the roots generously with TRESemme hairspray. Backcomb to death with a teasing comb. (I like to use a boar bristle teasing brush, but a traditional rat tail comb works too!)
Step 5: Continue parting and combing until you reach the last section at your hairline. Do not backcomb this last parting! Leave that alone so it will look pretty when you smooth it over the mound of teased hair. After smoothing it over the rest of the hair, spray with a finishing spray like TRESemme Climate Control Finishing Spray. Pin hair back with bobby pins if desired.
And now that you know how super simple it is to get to pouf perfection using TRESemme, here are some examples of how you can wear the pouf! It’s literally so versatile and you can dress it up or down as desired. See below for further amped up inspiration. It took me about 30 seconds to switch between styles. Pouf = life.
