Cut Down Product Buildup
Most people glop hair products at the front of their heads and work backward. But according to Stefanie Henriquez, a stylist at the Frederic Fekkai salon at the Mark in New York City, this method causes too much product to pile up at the hairline, weighing down the roots. Instead, gather your hair at the nape of your neck and begin the application at the ends, working toward the crown. Use what’s left at the hairline.
