Q:

How do you make your hair stand up?

A:

Make your hair stand up by choosing a styling product that causes this effect. Wash and condition the hair as normal, towel your hair dry, blow-dry your hair and then add the product.

  1. Choose your product

    Determine how stiff you want your hair to be, and purchase the appropriate product. Choose from products that offer a light, medium or strong hold. Fine hair does best with a styling spray or mousse. Medium-textured hair does best with a light gel or lotion, and coarse hair does well with a strong, thick gel.

  2. Wash and towel-dry your hair

    Using the shampoo and conditioner of your choice, wash and condition your hair, and then towel-dry to remove excess moisture.

  3. Blow-dry hair at the roots

    Hold your hair straight up, and hold the blow dryer close to the roots as you dry the hair. Work the dryer from the roots to the ends of your hair. If your hair is long, try bending forward and hanging your head upside down during this process.

  4. Add styling product

    Place a small amount of the styling product on your palms, and rub them together. Then, move your hands through roots of your hair. The more product you get on the roots, the more your hair will stand up.

  5. Apply the product to the length and ends

    Work the product from the roots to the ends of your hair. Repeat until you achieve the desired look.
