What is a puff?

So if you want some volume in your hair or even to elongate your face then go for this hairstyle as this will do the job for you. 

Now we move on to the step by step guide to make puff on your hair. 

Step by step ways on how to make puff in hair

1. Comb your hair

Before you start it is important to comb your hair properly because you don’t want your hair to get tangled while you are taking a puff. So make sure to properly comb your hair and with the right brush, about which we will talk more in the next step. So the better you brush your hair the more volume it will give to your puff. 

2. The combs you need

To make a puff you would require a few combs to do the right job for you. So first you need a comb or a brush to detangle your hair properly and that will add the air in your hair which will further add volume to your puff.

You will also need a sectioning comb to properly and neatly section your hair and separate the parts you want to keep to make a puff and to leave the rest. 

3. Section your hair

Now you have to section your hair from in the front. You can decide and adjust how much you want to take to create the puff. This will also determine the volume of your hair.

If you take a smaller section then you will have a puff with no height and if you take a bigger section then your puff can be of some height. 

4. Making the puff

Now that you have decided what height you want to keep then you can use a tail comb to properly separate the section and gather the hair together that you want to use to create the puff. 

5. Roll the section

This is the step that you can adjust according to the height of the puff. After you have the section of your hair you want to make a puff with, simply twist them in one direction. This will give the volume and raise it to some height. 

6. Secure it with bobby pins

You should use bobby pins to secure the puff at the place and the desired height. Use 2-3 bobby pins so that it doesn’t move from its place and stay there for as long as you want. 

7. Use a hairspray

If you want your puff to stay in its place for a longer period then you can use a hairspray to fix it in place. This way you can enjoy or go about your day and won’t have to worry about messing your puff. 

After making a puff you have a lot of choices as to what you want to do with the rest of your hair. You can create different looks and they all look amazing and fabulous. 

A few of the hairstyles that you can try are: 

A puff and a ponytail

This hairstyle is very popular and very easy to make. After you have made a puff all you have to do is take all the hair together and tie them in a ponytail.

You can decide if you want a high pony or a low ponytail they both will look just amazing. 

A fancy low bun with a puff

This one is a perfect pick for the fancy events as this looks super elegant. After making a puff from the front section of your hair you can divide all of your hair in the back into two sections.

Tie a chignon with your hair. You can even leave little parts on either side of your head to either wrap around the bun or to simply leave them out. This would be a perfect hairdo for prom or weddings. 

Braids with a bun

Another quick but cool way to style braids. You can try making a side puff by simply following the above-mentioned hair and tucking it on one side of your hair.

You can gather your hair on the opposite side to make a loose braid. You can even make a fishtail braid if you want as it looks great this way. 

Leave your hair open

One of the best ways is to keep your hair open and do nothing except the puff in the front. You can take a bigger section, like near your ear, and take a puff.

A small puff with a top knot
