Hair Rat: the old fashioned Bump-It

Ever wonder what women did in the days before the Bump-it to get volume and cool shapes in their hair styles?
Well, they used what is called a "hair rat" which is basically a lump of hair from your brush that you save and wrap in a hair net.
Check out this tutorial on how to make one.

Once you have your hair rat all ready, you roll your hair over it and then pin in place. The advantage of making your own is that it will match your hair color exactly (duh) and will blend in.

SO, what's underneath your poufy hair?
