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!

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.

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

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.

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.
