Aubrey O'Day's super-volumized strands feature height on top and neatly pinned-back sections on the sides.
Step 1: Apply a handful of volumizing mousse onto damp hair. Blow dry two-inch sections using a large round brush to lift at the root for volume.
Step 2: Take a two-inch section of hair on top and hold it straight up. Use a tight-tooth comb and backcomb in short strokes along the back of the section down toward your scalp. Repeat with all sections on top.
Step 3: Use a natural bristle brush and smooth the surface of the teased section as you direct it back. Take three-inch sections on each side and pin together in back.
