Backcombing explanation:

Is a way of combing hair which is used to create volume as well as to create certain hairstyles. Backcombing also known as teasing, meaning repeatedly combing the hair towards the scalp, causing the hair to tangle and knot up. This method is often used in creating various big hair styles similar to the classic look. The Avant -Garde look also has repeated backcombing at the crown to give extreme height.
