What you need:

  • Brush or comb
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hairspray
  • (Optional) Dry Shampoo if your hair is too clean or too dirty. You want a little grit for this one.

Step One.

Section off the crown of your hair. Spray with hairspray and tease.

Step Two.

Insert two bobby pins opposite of each other to hold. Tug at the hair to get it as poofy on top as you like. Us Texans LOVE our big hair so I pull mine out a bit more than most.

Step Three.

Grab a piece from the front and pull it back and over the bobby pins to cover them. Then insert a bobby pin through that piece and in towards the first 2 bobby pins.
