    Use a Carbosilk Comb to tease the hair at the back of head to build height and volume for the bump. Add finishing spray to each teased section. Do not tease hair around the face.

    Lightly smooth out teased hair with the Supreme Boar Paddle Brush, forming a bump at the back of the head. Pull all the hair back with the brush and gather it at the mid-back of the head. Make sure to leave the bump untouched.
