Now this is one way to pump up the volume! Jessica Biel, Rihanna, and Scarlett Johansson each added a retro twist to their hairstyles by incorporating a mini-pompadour for recent appearances. Rihanna and Johansson opted for side-swept versions, while Biel’s finger-wave texture added a graphic edge. The extra height can dress up a familiar style like a bun or ponytail, and is a fun way to hide second-day strands. In fact, skipping a shampoo is recommended—clean, blown-out hair is too slippery to hold this style all day. To try this look, take out a section near the front of your head before securing your updo, and tease gently at the roots. Use a piece of unteased hair to hide the backcombing, and depending on your desired effect, secure the volume either at the side or top of your head. Voila!
