1 Backcomb - work in 1in sections from forehead to nape, hold sections verticle from head and comb hair repeatedly with tail-end comb from end to root to build up “back combing” from the scalp to create a mouldable texture.

2 Pin - softly tease hair into shape and place Kirby grips from nape up to secure base.

3 Secure - the remaining hair is softly brushed into place and secured with U pins. Hair is then “fixed” into place with label m hairspray.

Top tip: Use label m texturising volume spray to add texture and hold prior to back combing.


1 Eyes: Smashbox Full Exposure Palette for the eyes, use grey colours and an eye primer under shadow. Gel liner in black above the lash line and non smudge mascara to finish.

2 Lips: Use lip liner to define lip and prevent colour “bleed”; fill in lip with a long wear lipstick for colour and texture.

Label m tail end comb, £6
