Tease smaller sections or shorter hair with Big Wonder’s partner in crime, Spornette Little Wonder

Spornette International

Birchbox Breakdown

There’s more to backcombing than Snooki’s infamous pouf—trust us. Stylists rely on the technique to create volume for those with even the finest of hair, and they’ve been turning to Spornette to get the job done since the ’50s. This genius brush parts, teases, and styles like none other, whether you’re going for tousled waves or a glam look that screams red carpet cameo (just so long as it’s not reminiscent of a certain former show set on an East Coast shoreline).

How it Works

Boar-nylon bristles penetrate hair without snagging to create fullness and volume. The pointed handle parts hair and picks up sections with ease. Big Wonder is ideal for longer hair.

How to Use

Use the tapered handle to separate dry hair near your crown into smaller sections. Brush towards the root in quick, sharp motions, ruffling the cuticle to achieve shape and volume. Gently smooth over your teased hair with the brush or your fingers, and then style into a ponytail or bun. Add a spritz of hairspray to keep your ’do in place from morning ’til night.

Nice!!
Purchased

This thing rocks. I love how much volume I get when I tease portions of my hair! I also like the smoothing effect I get when I use to brush smaller sections of hair. Two thumbs up!

Hair as high as the sky!

This brush is amazing when it comes to back combing. I have owned it for years and have been nothing but pleased with it. My only suggestion is to NOT apply hairspray or finishing spray directly onto the brush.

Good for teasing
Purchased

Works well. Good size, for home and travel. Use for teasing, would not use for blow drying. Would recommend if you want to use for extra volume.

Great teaser!
Purchased

I am a huge fan of teasing but have always just used a comb or a brush! Not any more!!!! This brush is a wonder item for those who have thin hair or just like lots of volume!

It's a must purchase.

Awesome at Smoothing and Teasing

I really have LOVED this brush to go over my locks after I blow dry. It smooths my hair and gives it a nice shine. Also, for teasing it's great. Tease underneath and perfectly smooth over on top!

Volume, finally!

I've always struggled to volumize my flat, straight hair. I teased the crown of my head with brush while blow drying. It really gave me big hair for the day!

Operator error?

It's probably my poor technique but I haven't had much luck with this brush. I'm going to try it with some texturizing spray and maybe that will help. My teasing comb works better for me.

Decent brush

Great for styling! My hair is super thick and gets very knotty, so this isn't going to be a complete replacement for my normal brush. Great for finishing, made my hair soft and shiny. This is a wooden handle with a combination of super soft and stiff bristles. This is still pretty small, even though it's the "big" version.
I was happy with this purchase overall.
