    To create the right amount of volume in a backward-flowing shape, begin blow drying in the front of the head, overdirecting the hair at the root forward over the face. Do this until the root area is 80% dry and leave the hair in a forward motion to cool.

    Pull the sides straight back with a brush and direct the airflow backwards to compress the sides and to give it a blowback look.

    Start creating your volume at the high point of the head. Lift the hair up with a vented Denman brush and stretch it out. Take small sections that are roughly the width of the brush and work your way toward the forehead, directing the airflow back away from the face and elevating each section slightly more than the previous.

    On the last section before the hairline, instead of pulling the hair up, pull it out forward over the face with the airflow angled upward.
