Whatever you choose to call it, backcombing is a great base for many styles ranging from subtle to extreme. Halloween is just around the corner and although it may seem straight forward, knowing a few tricks can really help you achieve your desired look. When backcombing is done correctly, and with care, you can get maximum volume, drama, and texture while eliminating the risk of damage.

For extra fullness, start by shampooing with Davines VOLU shampoo, towl dry and prep with the VOLU volume mist. Hair must be dried thoroughly before beginning your backcombing. You can choose to utilize your natural texture or play with flat ironing, curling, and crimping.

If you chose to use irons, we recommend looking back at Tiffany's post on heat styling.

Depending on how fine or wide your comb, combined with how tight the backcomb, you can achieve many looks and varied fullness.
