How to achieve a salon blow dry…

You’ve had the salon blowdry and it has lasted for a few days or so, but how do you achieve that salon finish for yourself? Whether you are looking for a volumised bouncy style or a quick and easy, more natural look, read on for my tips on achieving fabulous blow drys for all hair types.

– Bouncy Blowdry Bouncy Blowdry– Blast hair and smooth through. Wrap hair around a round brush from ends to root and bake in heat until dry. Use Aveda Phomollient for added hold.

– Beachy Waves – Blast hair until almost dry. Section off hair into 4, spray in some Volumising Tonic to each section and twist hair away from the face. Dry the hair until it is bone dry. Loosen twists for a beachy, natural look.

– Smooth and Sleek – Dry hair until almost dry. Section hair into even pieces. Make sure roots are dry and smooth hair with a round brush. Use Smooth Infusion – Naturally Straight before drying for that straighter, sleeker finish.

– Twisted Curls – Section small areas of hair and twist loosely around your finger to shape the curl. Don’t over handle the curl. Dry softly with a diffuser or let them dry naturally. Add a small amount of Be Curly – Curl Enhancer to your hair before drying and styling to create added volume and definition.

Watch this space for upcoming, easy in salon tutorials on how to achieve these looks for yourself. Appearing on our social media sites.
