Texture, tousled waves, lots of volume. We went to Gorgeous Hairdressing to discover how Tecni Art Rebel Push Up could help us create textured volume on shorter hair.

An intriguing new launch by L’oréal Professionnel, Gorgeous HQ had seen how Rebel Push Up could create volume in a bouncy blow dry. But could it have the same impact on short hair?

The challenge was on. Our limp, straight locks needed some oomph.

Step One

To start the look we washed the hair with Pureology Clean Volume Shampoo & Conditioner. We wanted volume from the get-go & for our colour to be protected. Clean Volume ensures fine hair is cleansed but not weighed down with a silicone, paraben and sulfate free formula.

Step Two

After washing the hair, we applied the new Tecni Art Rebel Push Up all over the hair. We focused on mid-lengths to ends as this is where most of the textured volume would be but made sure to apply it to the top & roots too.

Step Three

Without any combing or brushing, we roughly dried the hair all over. We made sure to not dry the hair downwards as this could decrease the amount of volume, so we dried it in different directions.

Step Four

We sectioned the hair out, starting with the lower layers & added curls using straightening irons. To create looser, more beach-like waves we made sure that as we were curling the straightening iron we did it downwards. If a more defined curl is wanted, it’s best to straighten outwards from the head – this will create more of a ringlet style curl.

Accidentally curled too much? Go back over the curls but using the irons as a straightener, gently press down on the curls without pulling the straighteners through. Alternatively, as soon as you’ve created a tight curl, pull down on the end of the curl with your fingers, elongating the curl whilst it cools.

Step Five

Once all the hair is curled, we tipped the head upside down and shook out the curls. To add an extra bit of oomph, we sprayed Kérastase Couture Styling Volume Powder through the lengths that gives a back-combed effect to the hair.

Look at that texture! We absolutely love the tousled, voluminous waves. Simple, but effective, using just two styling products: L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Rebel Push Up & Kérastase Couture Styling Volume Powder – we’ve managed to triple the volume of our hair!
