  • roll it, hairspray it within an inch of it's life and then tease it
    just like back in the 80's

  • TEASE, and hair spray.

  • Anything volumeizing will help! Also you can do what's called teasing your hair. All you do is take a comb and take a small section of your hair an back comb it. Also google can help.

  • Before spraying, hold your head upside down and put the spray near the roots of the hair...spray near scalp. Then wait a few seconds for it to dry. Getting the hair near the scalp to stand up is the key!

  • Put the palm of your hand against it and rub in a circle. Move your hand to a different spot and repeat. A little hairspray near the roots helps with this—you don't need to apply it to the ends. The downside of palming your hair is that the comb-out later requires a lot of conditioner and patience. You might prefer to find a halloween store that's open already and look for a mad scientist wig.

  • Oh, I got so excited when I read this question! I thought 80's hair was coming back! Oh well, Mine was so big that I used to get it caught in the car door! LOL! Anyway, just flip your head over & spray with hair spray. Don't stand up until it dries. Then more spray! I don't think there is a way to make big hair without making it "crunchy"! :)

  • back comb- spray a little and back comb some more!
    * tease it a LOT

    also-remember that when you are done, to comb it out before you wash it

  • Tease it and Hairspray, it's prob going to need to be crunchy. And I think that a little crunch will look good for the mad scientist look
