Hair Poofing 101

Since so many of you asked how Jill poofed her hair, I thought I would have her show you. She agreed to come over and do a step-by-step video of her poofing routine. It's kind of long, but she is very detailed.....12 minutes to be exact. Hopefully, it will help! She is, by far, the best poofer I know!

Here is a picture of the hair spray she uses, in case you forgot the name of it! It's Freeze It Original.

Happy Poofing!

And Happy Friday!

I haven't watched the video yet but this cracks me up haha!! I didn't comment asking how but certainly wondered, since I can tease the HECK out of my hair and spray it like crazy, etc and it falls in 5 minutes and looks awful!! SO.... thanks in advance for the video Jill and Jennifer!! :)

Terri said...

This made my morning!!! My friends always wonder how I do my poof...they think I learned it in TEXAS - however, I must always correct them ant tell them only from my beautiful ARKANSAS pageant friends did I learn the art of the poof. I have this AMAZING comb I get from Sallys that I have given several people here. And embarrassingly - the first time I ever went to a party at one of my church friends houses...I did a demonstration for my friends. The poof is life changing!! ha ha ha!

Aishlea and Brandon said...

Thank you so much! :) I love it! I needed help with the poof, and this video was great!!

Our Family of 5 said...

You girls are the cutest ever! Love the video!

Jilly said...

PHARES CAUSEY said...

Hillarious! I actually use that hairspray too. I would just rather have Jill do my hair for me! You guys are too cute!

Summer said...

Ya'll crack me up, and are sooo cute when doing a demonstration on "Poofing"! I like how Brody was assisting in the process! Thanks for the tip for a good poof! I LOL when Jill said the higher the poof the closer you are to God!! Sooo funny! Ya'll are too cute
Summer :0)

M Oliver said...

Jill is such a good sport! I was laughing so hard when she turned to the side and of course when Brody wanted to help! I've gotta get some of that spray!

Larissa said...

That was greatness!!! I just wish I had long enough hair to have a poof. Brody was such a good boy during the demo too :)

Cindy said...

Y'all are way too cute!

John and Riley said...

Jennifer - I LOVE your blog and enjoy reading about your little family. I look at your blog often, but don't usually comment, but I need to change that - hee hee. I guess I'm starting today! This video was priceless - so much fun and it cracked me up. I really enjoyed the education of making a good poof...wow that was awesome. I'll have to see if I can pull that off sometime! Have a wonderful weekend in Arkansas. We used to live in Conway, but we are in the Dallas area now

Emily said...

HILARIOUS!!! Seriously, well done demonstration! You all are killing me.....makes me miss my sisters. Love all your sister's product plugs.

Amber said...

Oh My...this mad me laugh! LOVE IT!! Think I may try the "Poof" this weekend!!

Erin said...

If only I had Thick Hair! Mine is thin and really short now lol!! Maybe I will grow it out and try it :)

Katy S said...

You and your sister are so cute!!! I love that ya'll made a video of the poof! Too funny! Her hair looks great, I can't achieve a poof that good.

Katie said...

You girls are so cute! I love hearing your accents! :] Thanks for posting this, I wondered how she manages such an amazing poof!

Erin said...

That is hilarious! Y'all are too cute for school!

Leah said...

I've been a blog lurker but after watching this video just HAD to comment! I don't have any sisters, but watching the way you two interact with one another made me wish I did. This just simply cracked me up! I love her comment about the bigger the poof the closer you are to God - ha! :) I also just enjoyed simply listening to you talk... I'm from Indiana if that explains anything. Have a great day, Jennifer and Jill!!

Todd and Courtney said...

I can't believe I watched that entire thing and I don't even poof :) I loved it! Fabulous. How about i just pay Jill to come do my hair, HA!

Julee Turner said...

I cant believe y'all did a 12 minute video on hair and never mentioned your hair stylist! haha! I loved the video and Mom said she really learned from it! She said she is going to watch it over and over! I died laughing at Brody carrying your makeup case. He might want to do hair one day after witnessing that! :)

Barbara said...

You too are sooo cute (so is Brody)!! I wish my hair was long enough to poof! I got to send this to my friends with long hair so they can POOF!!!

Annie said...

you girls are too funny....
this is so cute.

I could NEVER pull off a poof like that. My hair is hair TOO thin :(

But maybe I SHOULD try out that hairspray though!! Looks like magic spray!!

Megan said...

That was so cute. You guys are precious.

April said...

Tell your Sister - THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!!! I can't wait to get my poof on ;) p.s. this video is sooo something my Sister & I would do - hilarious!! Have a good weekend!!

Kodi said...

Oh my goodness y'all are too much. I LOVE your accents! haha So cute. I am definitely going to try this poofing thing out. I've been so tempted to buy a bump it but just won't let myself. If I'm successful I'll send you a pic. ;)

Chea said...

I'm going to WalMart after work and buying some spray so I can get a "poof" for my husband's family reunion tomorrow! Thanks for the step by step video. Bump It's won't be seeing my money after all!!!

SassyMomma said...

Y'all are so funny! ;)
Thanks Jill! I've always wanted to know how to do my hair that way!

The Bannister's said...

I have been following your blog for a bit and just adore your family! I had to comment after the poof demo... LOVE IT! I loved hearing you 2 interact, makes me wish I had a sister. I am totally going to try Jill's method. Happy poofing!

Christa said...

This video cracked me up! Y'all are too cute!! I am def going to try to poof my hair!! Loved Brody in the background!!

Angela Cliff and Sam said...

Poor Julee was left out of all of the hair talk- at least Jill plugged Bumble and Bumble's Damage Therapy lines...that is good stuff! (sister of Julie K's and I used to work at Metropolis)

Rebekah said...

I am cracking up...and I haven't even watched the video yet!

Stephanie said...

This was great! Funny and informative - can't wait to try it on my own hair. Never quite gotten it right. Thanks!

The Stokley Family said...

Oh my that was hilarious!!

Twinkletoes said...

This is so funny. I don't know if I ever commented before, but this one made me crack up. Brody is such a good baby, by the way. Anyway - how is the quality of her hair? Is it damaged or no? I can't get over how she teases it like that!

Melissa said...

I just watched the entire 12 minutes! Haha... that was such a cute idea for the blog!

Amy said...

this was hilarious! i can't believe 38 (well...i make 39) people have commented on a post about a poof - ha! long live big hair!!!

Angie said...

That movie was abosultely hilarious!! I was cracking up the entire time - but I am so trying that & going to get Freeze It tonight!!!!

I love it!!! Thanks for sharing :)

Keely said...

You two are precious! I agree with the other comments, hilarious, but you know we are all gonna try it! Love your accents!

Jenna said...

I LOVED this!! Ya'll are precious and hilarious! Jill, you are my poof hero for sure!!!

Lauren said...

That was great! I have always wondered how and wanted to poof. Can you post a picture of her hair style? I loved the bangs and layers!!

The Lambert's said...

You are Jill are the cutest ever!! The video made me laugh so hard! I usually use a fine tooth comb when I do my proof but I am going to try the brush to see if I can get it as big as Jill's :) Thanks!! I love reading your blog :) I liked the entry about your walmart clothes :) I was so impressed that I even went to Walmart and got this really cute shirt for $7!!

JandKStaats said...

The video was so cute. Y'all are the cutest!

Shanna said...

This cracks me up. Jill is too funny!

Mary said...

Oh my sister and I are loving this video--Y'all are too funny together! If you have time I posted a video of my two year-old little girl's poof today and hadn't even read your post.

I'm raising her right :)

Crystal said...

I was laughing so hard while watching this! Y'all are too cute and I am trying the poof this weekend!

Amanda said...

I am sad that I can't view this video for some reason. After reading everyone's comments I'm dying to watch it! I click the play button and then the screen just stays black. Anyone know??

Brittney said...

Hey girl! I stumbled on your blog from Kelly's Korner...and LOVE that poofing video! Since I moved to NWA from OBU, I have been admiring the HUGE poofs here....glad to get some directions. Hope it works for me!

Mary Madeline said...

Y'all are so funny!! Marisa and I watched this video and laughed so hard. We cannot wait to try it. I will let you know how it turns out.

Adge said...

great video.

Lisa said...

LOVE IT! You 2 make me laugh. The girls and I at work watched it because we are always trying to get our poof to stay and it never does. Walmart should give Jill and extra bonus for this free advertisement!

Keilani said...

This is the best!!!! I love you guys! Brody is sooo cute!! Thanks for the info you guys...and I live in a northern state, but you guys have the best accents!

Annette said...

Now that was too stinkin cute!!! This is my first time visiting your blog (I saw your blog through Kelly's Korner) and I just love you and your sister. Yall have the cutest southern accent and you are both very beautiful.
Now I am going to try my hand at the poofing thing as soon as I get to Wally World for the Freeze it hairspray.

Katie said...

You all are lifesavers! I am headed to Wal-Mart tonight to get my Freeze it and clear ouchless hair ties! Thanks for making me smile and helping my hair rut!

Momma Jones said...

What kind of brush do you use?

Glenda said...

I just linked to your blog. This video is HILARIOUS!!!! LOVE it!!!!!!

Cecelia---Sis---Mom said...

Oh, how I needed this today. My sister can poof, I have never been able to poof... but NOW..NOW... I may be able to meet her poof eye to eye. hahahahaha

Loved the video...off to check out more of the blog.

Cece

Sara said...

Michelle said...

JUST.PRECIOUS! FUNNY! Really is life changing! Gonna go buy that hairspray and poof poof poof!

Natalie said...

Oh my gracious! This video is too funny, you girls are too cute!

The Ormons said...

Great video. My hair is much shorter but I get the concept. My husband watched the video with me and said are you going to poof. I was like of course... yall are too cute

Elena said...

What a cute video! It brought back memories when I was little girl and my older sisters did that to their hair in the 60's!

audrey said...

This is great! I've always admired the southern girls' "poof". Growing up in Ohio I had no one to show me how to do these things. I'll be trying this tonight!

The Wife said...

I just came across your blog and I love it! I might try it one day!! Thank you for sharing! Love the blog!

Sitesx6 said...

I'm brand new to your blog (from Kelly's Korner) and I think you and your sis are HYSTERICAL and adorable. This cute video made me miss my sister so much. (We are best friends and live in different states.)

I've lived my whole life and never knew how to POOF....you complete me.

I'm trying it tomorrow (but I won't be as close to God as you...I'll go for a low poof or my friends might freak.)
:)

Keep the hair help coming. How does your hair not feel like gunk and good after all the hairspray???

I need help with bangs...can you help me with that next?
Kelly in Michigan (the unpoofed state)

aLena said...

Thanks for the demo!

I needed a lil help with my poof so definitely LOVED it!

Nina said...

Love the poofing video. Thank you so much. And I am so going to be buying that hairspray. I love big hair and I used to always use Rave #4, but I don't think they sell it anymore.

Jenna said...

I used to be a hairstylist and LOVE the poof also!!! It always cracked my clients up when there hair was standing straight up after teasing it..it probably freaked them out a little too before seeing the actual style lol!

Have a Merry Christmas!!

Amanda M. said...

Came over from Kelly's Korner - LOVE this video. I am a HUGE fan of the poof, even being a northern girl. :) Anyway - this video is just awesome and I think your little assistant Brody is just THE cutest!

Ashley said...

This MADE MY DAY.

I am dying, I love it so much. I am the only one of my friends that poofs (I say "tease"), but I haven't reached this level of perfection. I'm going to get that hairspray!

Charissa @ MiMi's Babies said...

Ya'll are hilarious!!! I haven't tried "poofing" yet, but I think that I will. Thanks for sharing!

Rikki said...

I found this through Kellyskorner and I love it! I love the poof but have yet to master it. Now I finally have a tutorial, lol.

Kristi said...

Oh, ya'll are so much fun! My girls and I were gathered around the computer watching the video...so much fun! I'm off to Walmart tomorrow for the stuff. Thanks for the tutorial.

Melanie said...

OMgosh! I LOVE THIS!!!! THANK YOU!!! I am going to Walmart tomorrow to find that stuff! I SOOO need a poof!!!! My 9 year old watched the video with me and is also begging for a poof! Thank you both!!!! :o)

lisa said...

This cracked me up!

OsageBluffquilter said...

You need to go to Sally's Beauty supply. My daughter showed me a comb she bought there that works great in place of the hair brush. It's a comb with like 3 rows of teeth just made for teasing the hair.
Patti

christi said...

ok i can't find this stuff and i LOVE the poof!! where was this video when i needed it?!! looks great!

Becky said...

Hilarious! I saw your video on Kelly's Korner. FUNNY! I was laughing so hard--my teenager daughter asked me "what are you watching??". I am a child of the 80's and love me some big poofy hair. I am certainly going to find me some of the Freeze "IT" product. Thanks for sharing. You are too cute!

Basham said...

I hate to admit this..but I just looked for a video on u tube on how to poof! Your video however, was much better..I loved it! You are both so funny! My husband was laughing at me b/c I said I can't wait to try it tomorrow. Thanks for making many women of the world have a better poof!!

Lori said...

Oh my gracious y'all are too funny! I came over from Kelly's...couldn't resist a poof tutorial! I just started poofing in the last few months and I think I'm addicted! Guess it's just a southern thang! LOL!

Diamonds & Dumptrucks Boutique said...

I just loved this! I have ALWAYS wanted to do a "poof" and never could get it to look right - I finally done it Sunday for Church but it didnt look as good as yours! My husband watched this with me and said Hunny I hope you dont do that - it looks like a basketball is sitting on her head HA! Men - they dont know style! :) Yall are both beautiful!

Virginia said...

I love to poof my hair, but it never looks this good! This video was so cute! I have a sign in my bathroom that says "The higher the hair, the closer to God!" love it!

Amy said...

Oh my goodness. I found your blog from Kelly! I love me some poof video. This was hilarious yet so informative. And you girls are cute! Thank you so much.

allie-mac-fallie said...

this is too cute! i have never tried the "poof" but i might just do that now :) I am inspired hahahah :) love it!

Betsy said...

This hairstyle was meant for me. I can do the big hair thing! Ya'll are so funny!! :)

Katie said...

Hilarious!! You girls are so cute.
My poof never looks that good, so I am going to give your way a try :)

Rose said...

how toooo cute! You two (y'all) remind me of me and my sister!!! ;) Speaking of -- sisters -- mine got married on November 8th, and this little "lesson in poofing" session would have been VERY helpful. Oh, my goodness! I had to do her "up-do" on her wedding day, and that whole "poofing" thing about did me in!!!!!! Loved your reference to Beth, Jill!!! ;*] Blessings, girlies!

Tammy518 said...

I found you through Kelly's blog. This is so cool! I try to "poof" my thin, fine hair, but it never really does anything. I think with your tutorial, and getting the right spray, I can do.

Katie said...

I jumped over from Kelly's Korner to watch the video. I must say we need you Southern ladies to teach us Midwest gals how to properly poof! We live in the middle of nowhere on the prairie and my two little girls will eventually have the best poofs ever from this video!

Erin said...

oh my word!!!! y'all are hilarious! i LOVE it...i'm heading out to wal-mart today to get me some Freeze It Original HA!

Team Alix said...

Hi Jennifer-
I haven been reading your site for a while, but today I am de-lurking! I saw the hair poofing video yesterday and then today Kelly (Kelly's Korner) mentioned it in her post so I had to stop over again!
The video is so funny and Jill is such a good sport! Here in Massachusetts I could NEVER get away with a poof like that, but God bless you southern girls! I love it!

Paula Kathlyn said...

Yall just made my day! I have to admit that I am a poofer myself- although not quite that high!!! Very pretty though and quite hilarious.

ajgregory said...

Hopping over from Kelly's Korner. Ya'll are too cute! Love the poof and will definitely have to give it a try!
Thanks for the poof rehab! I've never been able to get mine to stay. Poofs all over the south will never be the same!

Patty said...

LOVE IT! I'm not reading through all 99 comments before me but like most people (I assume) I was brought to your blog from Kelly's Korner although I've been a reader since your little Brody was born! Thanks to you and Jill for showing how the poof can be achieved - I'm thinking I'll need some layers before I can actually reach this level of greatness with my hair! You both cracked me up. Thanks for the video, I'm headed to WalMart today to find me some Freeze It! Merry Christmas to you and your family. :)

Lori said...

I am also a poofer! But I think that you have just gave me some great tips to make mine a lot better, mine has a tendency to look ratty in the back. So I will most definelty be getting my hands on that hairspray. Thank you for sharing, I loved every minute. Your hair is amazing!!!

Karissa said...

Sad to say that I'm not a poofer but I sure watched the whole video and loved every second of it. Y'all crack me up.

Amanda Faye said...

OMG,,, I just want you to know my sister in law and I watched this video twice..We laughed SO hard.. This was VERRY informative and HILARIOUS.. Can I steal the video for my blog ....LOL XOXO

the undomesticated wife said...

That's a funny video! I'm from Texas, so of course I'm a poofer! ;) It's part of our southern upbringing, am I right ladies?

I have a little secret that helps...I have a few of those huge velcro rollers, and I'll take small sections starting at the crown and roll. Do about two or three sections. Let set for a while (like while you are doing your make-up) and then take down, spraying and teasing as you do.

the undomesticated wife said...

Oh, and I meant to add that when I was a teenager in the late 1980s/early 1990s, we had a KILLER product called "Stiff Stuff" that we'd use to poof our hair after hot rolling it. That stuff was amazing. Too bad they don't sell it anymore! Anyone in their 30s remember Stiff Stuff? LOL

Jenny Garland said...

I am SO poofing tomorrow! :) Thanks for the fun video.

Connie said...

I love it! You girls are great and I love your poof and your closeness to God!! WHat fun ya'll!

Connie

Came over from Kelly's Korner!

transplantedbelle said...

I LOVE this! I'm an Arkansas girl living in Boston, MA and this made me so homesick! I still do the poof and tell my coworkers "the higher the hair, the closer to Jesus"..they just laugh, but I think they are jealous! LOL Thanks for the smile and long live the poof!

Tanya said...

Love your video and love the hairspray!

http://txtanya.blogspot.com/2009/12/santa-shirt-and-hair-spray.html

Katie said...

How cute are you and your sister?? Adorable! Love this video! And I love that she knew exactly how much the hair spray cost at Walmart. I'm running out to get it tonight. Seriously!

Miss Monogram said...

This video is hysterical!! I love it--makes me want to get to poofin' tonight ;)

My Blonde Reality said...

You girls are so darn cute! I am getting some poof spray tomorrow! thank you for the video!

Heather said...

Love it!!! Way to funny and can't wait to try it!!!

April said...

This is the greatest! I could never get my hair to poof but maybe if I try it with that hairspray it will work. You girls have the most adorable accents by the way!

Gale said...

This is so fun to watch!! I am way too hurried with my hair/makeup to ever do it right, but I love this. I NEED to send this to a lady in my church who rocks the 'bump-IT' every Sunday, with half of the brown thing hanging from the edges of her platinum blonde hair!! Very distracting from the morning message!

Room For More said...

My sister and I did a test run on the poof...I think we've got it down pat.

http://morebonkiesplease.blogspot.com/2009/12/poof.html

TidyMom said...

I LOVE this!! you guys are too cute!! Now I'm REALLY wishing I had my long hair back!! i used to LOVE to poof!, now with my inverted bob I can't poof as much or put it in a ponytail. :-(

~TidyMom

Mendie said...

I so love big hair so when I saw this, I said shew, I'm not alone! :) I went right out for some Freeze-it! I certainly haven't perfected it quite yet, but I'm working on it! Thanks for sharing!

6p00e54ffac4fc8834 said...

I have watched this video about 4 times now! I just sit in awe! I bought some Freeze It over the weekend and let's just say, I need practice! This morning I was just trying to create a small poof to give my flat hair some volume. It worked, but it has already fallen flat! I have really thick heavy hair but I'm also lacking the layers which I don't think is doing me any favors...at any rate, thanks for the video! LOVE it :)

Kim Durham Photography said...

HOLY POOFY HAIR!!!! I did it!!!!
By the time I was done, my poof was so high I heard the angels sing!!! It worked! I'm so stoked!! Lol!

You should have everyone send you pics or video's of their master pieces!!!

I'm in heaven!

Thanks!

Christy said...

Thanks for the video ladies!! It was fabulous! Can't wait to poof!!

the BLAH BLAH BLAHger said...

Oh my gracious! This is what I miss about the south! While she IS wearing a scarf, I'm kinda sad that I don't see any pearls on her. : )

Brown Girl said...

This is seriously the funniest video I have ever watched, the two of you are so freaking cute it's disgusting (but in a good way!)!! ;) And Brody running off with the make up bag had me cracking up!

Amy said...

I just giggled from the bottom of my toes. Love that the eyelash curler was given as a distraction for the baby :) Ha!

Sarah said...

This is the greatest video! That hairspray is gonna be sold out at Walmart this week! I know I'm getting me some!

Sarah said...

I did it! It worked, I love it
thank you thank you thank you for posting this!

Lesli said...

hahah.. every time I see a bottle of Freeze It, I think of this video and it brings a smile to my face! Okay and I have to admit that I have tried it... ok, it worked but it did not look half as good as your sister's!! My hair is so fine so I am sure that is part of the reason!! Oh, well, I must keep trying!! BTW, Love your blog, I am now a follower!!

Have a great weekend!
Lesli

Amanda Catherine Porter said...

After I caught you on Melissa's "Behind the Blog" chat last night, i just had to see the famous "Poof" post y'all were talking about!! I loved it haha, I need to start poofing my hair now ;p
