Five Simple Steps to The Best Blow Dry Ever

Achieving that dream blow dry is something that all bridal hairstylists absolutely must know how to do. It might not be something you do a lot, but when you get a client that simply wants their hair blow dried to perfection for their big day, you’d better know how to do and it do it well.

There are different levels of greatness to a blow dry: some hairstylists feel it’s enough to end up with the hair dry and not a total mess; others like to use a particular hairdryer as their tool of choice to create a sleek style but hairstylists who train with create beautiful hair know that blow-drying can be used for so much more.

On our Online Bow dry & hair up course, and our 1 day intensive blow drying course, you’ll learn not only how to blow dry hair to perfection.

You’ll discover amazing pro techniques on how to style your client’s hair big and bouncy, smooth and straight, enviably curly and of course, all with gorgeous volume and movement.

There is no better way to learn than by watching the best in the industry and then going for it with loads of hands-on practice, which is what we offer on our 1 day blow drying course and virtually, on our online blow dry/bridal hair course too. But the next best thing is to get a few great tips that you can then work on at home. In today’s blog, that’s exactly what you’re going to get.

 

Here are five simple steps to the best blow dry ever!

blow dry

Avoid Friction

When the hair is still wet and you’re preparing to blow dry, the first thing you’ll need to do is remove around 70% of that moisture. We all know that heat-styling is not brilliant for hair health, so reducing the time that you need to keep those locks under hot air is a must is you want your client to have glossy tresses with minimal frizz.

To do this, you should squeeze the hair in a microfibre towel – never rub, as this friction leaves the hair dry and brittle. Apply a light leave-in conditioner as a moisturiser and detangler and then remove tangles using a tangle teezer.

Prep with Products

Once you have let the hair dry off a bit, it’s time to prep with excellent products! A volumizer spray either just at the roots or throughout the hair for plumper strands all over can really make all the difference to both fine hair that needs a bit of extra filling out and heavy hair that struggles to hold that bounce.

We love the Kerastase Volumifique spray which is milky and lightweight enough to not weigh down the hair, conditioning and a texturizer too which will help to hold the finished style in place for longer.

blow dry

Rough Dry

You won’t have the time to allow the hair to air dry to the point where it needs to be, so flip your client’s head upside-down and rough dry, using your fingers to tousle through, until you reach that 70% point.

Always keep moving the heat around the scalp to lift the roots all over and maximise the effectiveness of your chosen products, applied in the previous step.

Train With Us

blow dry

Section

Sectioning is a MUST for blow drying hair – you simply can’t achieve any look worth having without it. Follow a basic roller setting pattern for your sections and then begin to blow dry using a mixed boar bristle round brush lifting the section up and away from the face, with the nozzle and air-flow pointing up the hair, from the root to tip.

Once you have dried a section, roll it in on the brush and then clip into a vertical pin-curl on the scalp. Once you’ve made your way around the whole head, your pin-curls will have had at least 5 minutes to cool, so you can go ahead and take those out one by one.

Choose Your Look!

Now that the blow drying is done, you can choose to leave the hair untouched for a neat look and finish with a light hold hairspray, or give the hair a good shake through with your fingers for a more natural, loose style.

Adjust the parting to suit and complete with a spritz of TIGI Full Of It finishing spray (holding the can 10 inches away) for maximum but flexible hold.

Bridal Hair for 2018: The Create Beautiful Hair Favourites

bridal hair

Whatever the weather, whatever the season; a bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and it’s up to you as her chosen bridal hair stylist to know how to create a bridal hairstyle that leaves her looking flawless…

Some bridal hairstylists see themselves as specialising in more contemporary looks, others in classic bridal styles but if you want to be a really successful hairstylist who stays fully booked all year round and is loved by all clients of all ages, it’s important to know your stuff about a wide variety of techniques.

From beautiful braids to vintage and retro styling, it’s all worth knowing, even if it’s not to your own taste. Sometimes a bride has her heart set on a certain look, but as her hairstylist you might know that what she wants is not always the best option.

Don’t be pushy, always work with her and listen to her wants and needs, but don’t be shy in offering your opinion or alternative solutions. Your expertise might just help her to discover that dream look she didn’t even know was out there! But to get it right, you need to be aware of and skilled in a broad selection of up-dos, down dos, plaits and braids and blowdrying techniques to handle any look.

To help you get clued up on all the best bridal styles for the year ahead, we wanted to give you a run-down of some of our favourite looks that we know we’ll be seeing a lot of it 2018.

Side partings, loose wavy blow-driesbraids and bold up-dos are just a few of our predicted bridal hair trends for 2018. Here are our top picks…

Faux ‘Air-Dryed AND Effortless

2018 is predicted to see a huge rise in trend for the ‘wholesome wedding’: Outdoorsy, woodland themes; “naked” cakes and minimal décor. It seems only fitting for the bride to match the theme!

If you have a bride seeking a more natural look for her Big Day, then faux ‘air-dried’ hair is going to be the ‘do for her. Looking effortless yet stylish, unpolished and cool. With minimal products and tools needed, this hair-down look is all about enhancing the hairs own texture. The idea is to keep it looking naturally gorgeous, like it’s just air-dried that way….

Blow-Dry to Perfection!

Master the art of a gorgeous wavy blow-dry on our 1 day Blow-drying Course

bridal hair
  • Start with damp hair (not wet!) and lightly comb through if needed, although try to do this as little as possible, as you want don’t want to change the hairs natural texture.

  • A little product is vital to make this look work and stop the hair looking fluffy – You want deliberate effortlessness, not genuinely natural hair!

  • Blow dry with a diffuser and lift at the roots. Whether your bride’s hair has a wave or not, a little dab of curl or wave cream like ‘Redken No Blow Dry NBD Airy Cream’ can work wonders.

  • If your bride has fine hair, try adding a little oil to the ends after towel drying to ‘dress’ and then lift and loosen at the roots around the crown to give the appearances of more volume.

  • For extra lift, use those trusty Babyliss heated rollers! If your client would prefer a little extra texture then try ‘Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It‘.

Braided Beauty

One trend we will be bringing with us from 2017, all the way through 2018 is the ever-popular plaits and braids. This is one bridal trend that is here to stay. Whether it’s a classic blow out with a baby hair line braid, a pancaked Dutch braid or a beautifully classic French plait; it’s clear to see that 2018 will showcase some of our well loved looks from the last few years.

Why not give your bride a jaw dropping ‘Wow’, with a beautifully slicked-back ‘do and a trio of braids fastened together at the back to give and soft and romantic feel?

Get to Grips with Plaits & Braids

View our 1 Day Braiding Course

bridal hair
  • Set the hair in rollers or blow dry for that essential root-lift.

  • Once the foundation is laid, part the hair into a deep side parting, and spritz with a Sea Salt Spray to add in some texture. We love ‘Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray

  • Add a 3 strand braid just beneath the ear on the left side and wrap it across to the right side and secure.

  • Repeat on the right side, securing just under the braid on the left.

  • Using the ends of both braids fold backwards and secure them together with Bobby pins to give the illusion of 3 braids.

  • If you want to add another dimension to this look you can curl the ends of your bride’s hair.

Captivating Curls

Talking of styles that never seem to go out of fashion, let’s talk curls…

2018 bridal hair is all about those waves and curls, natural or not. Loose curls and wavy hair are perfect for all types of bridal looks; whether your client is after an up-do, an all down or somewhere in between. Loose curls and waves are an easy way to achieve that dreamy look that will be seeing so much of in the coming year.

Romantic and sexy, we love this fab texture, even if it is one that makes many bridal hair stylists nervous! Pair bouncy tendrils with woven in flowers in a faux braid, or add in some rope twists for a bohemian half up half down do.

If your bride has natural curls, don’t freak out! We know that this is a challenge many bridal hair stylists out there are afraid of, but with the right techniques you’ll have no problem at all. If your bride is happy to embrace her natural curl, then help her really go for it! Define those ringlets with an excellent curl creme (we love TIGI Curlesque and Boots Essentials Curl Creme) and amp up the volume. If your bride would like to soften her curl, setting rollers in can help to do that in a really gorgeous way, loosening them up and making larger curls rather than tight ones which is often much easier for us to work with if you then want to style an up-do.

bridal hair

Go BIG or Go BOLD

Top knots and long “Rapunzel” plaits are some of the bolder up-dos predicted to be a huge hit for brides in 2018.

The Top knot may not be everyone’s first choice when it comes to bridal hair, but your more alternative bride may like the idea of something bold.

The Top Knot has the potential to be both edgy and elegany, so it’s a great choice for a variety of brides. It will also suit brides who have chosen a backless dress, perfectly, as this fantastic hairstyle will accentuate all those smaller details of the gown and allow the back of the dress to be on show in all it’s timeless beauty, for a real statement.

Why not incorporate both in to a more daring statement piece?

bridal hair
  • Make 2 French plaits using the front section of hair

  • Pull back the rest of the hair in to a high ponytail.

  • Plait the pony tail using a fishtail braid and wrap it in to a bun to make the top knot.

  • Wrap the two French plaits around the top knot and secure in to place with bobby pins.

  • Spray a light coating of hairspray to keep in place.

Pam Wrigley’s Tips on How to Stay Busy During the Off-Season

It’s part and parcel with being a bridal hair and makeup artist that there will be, more often than not, an off-season at some point during the year. For most of us, and many other businesses out there, this is during that lull after Christmas and New Year when suddenly all of the excitement of Party Season calms down and there’s not an awful lot going on.

For newbies in the business, this can be catastrophic. Having just got off the ground as a bridal hair and makeup artist only to be plunged back into the land of no-work is not something that anyone wants and understandably, this is one of the biggest fears we hear about when our lovely students are thinking of taking the leap and going pro.

Over time, as you become more established within the industry, you’ll find that off season isn’t so terrible (there are weddings and many other events on all year round, after all!) but for those of you a little afraid of what off-season might bring (or rather, might not bring) we’re got some expert tips for you from the Create Beautiful Hair founder, award-winning bridal hair and makeup artist Pam Wrigley…

How to stay busy during Off-Season:

off-season

Manage Your Diary

It might be a little late for this one now, but for 2018 make it a New Years Resolution to plan ahead and manage your diary with the Off-Season in mind.

Although you might not have many brides getting married in the early months of the year, springtime is very popular for weddings so book in loads of trial days for the time you know things are going to be quiet.

By doing this, you’ll not only keep a semi-steady flow of income and stay limber with those hair and makeup skills, but you’ll also be less likely to have a trial day clash with a day that you could be earning bigger bucks for on an actual wedding day or other job which are more likely to come about in summer.

Don’t be shy about suggested dates for the trial to your clients – they need to have it at some time, so why not when it benefits you?

off-season

Shop the Sales

Now here’s something we can ALL enjoy! Make the most of the amazing deals you see popping up post-Christmas and stock up on all the supplies you know you’re going to need for the rest of the year.

Yes, this can be expensive but it’s worth it in the long run if you can make a saving – and usually you can make a BIG saving!

Start coming up with a list now of all the bits and pieces you could do with so you’re ready to pounce as soon as the sales start.

Stay in Touch

Don’t allow a lull in work to equal a lull in communication with other suppliers and professionals in the industry. Having great contacts really can make an enormous difference to a burgeoning career, so make an effort to keep in touch with any photographers, wedding venues, other hair and makeup artists, event planners and whoever else you meet on your travels.

If you’re worried about pestering, get in touch with something they’ll want to hear about! A blog can be a great tool, not only for boosting your online presence and reaching your relevant target audience, but also for talking about and linking to other suppliers in the industry and having them do the same in return.

Blow Drying Perfection

 

For truly excellent blow drying

 

Follow these 5 tricks of the trade that make a world of difference:

Divide & Conquer

 

Never attempt to go at it without sectioning first! Correct sectioning of the hair makes a huge difference to the end result so don’t skip this step. Divide the hair into several sections and clip out of the way. Work up from the neckline to the crown for lovely volume and to avoid going over the same section more than once.

 

Keep Your Cool

 

It can be tempting to speed things up by switching onto the hairdryer’s hot setting, but for a frizz-free finish and to avoid damaging the hair, keep the air stream cool at all times. Ideally, the temperature should be comfortable against the back of your hand. If you do need to speed things up a bit, turn up the stream not the heat.

 

Damage Limitation

 

Lots of people assume that blow drying is bad for hair and in excess, that may be true, but what actually causes the problem is the heat damage rather than the blow drying itself. To keep hair healthy and happy, always use a really great heat protection spray, fix a diffuser onto the nozzle to disperse heat more evenly and always get the hair to 80% dry before you start to blowdry.

Keep Your Distance

 

You want to try and keep the dryer at least 8 inches away from the hair to avoid extra heat damage and whipping that barnet up into a bird’s nest! This is particularly important for fine hair that tangles easily but should be applied to all hair types.

 

Flawless Finish

 

It’s those little touches that make all the difference in all aspect of bridal hair and makeup styling, and the same applies here. Always angle your dryer down and blow each strand from root to tip for smooth cuticles (the foundation of smooth, shiny hair).

Once you’ve come to the end of drying your client’s hair into the desired style, blast a stream of cool air down the strands for more elasticity.
