For a lot of us we simply use our blow dryer as a means to drying our hair quickly so that we can use our flat iron or curling iron. But you can skip all of those heating tools and just stick to your blow dryer. By using your hair dryer you can keep frizz away, add volume and bounce to your tresses, and more. The two key elements to blow drying your hair for styling is 1. Round brush and 2. Styling products. Check out how you can use your blow dryer as a styling tool below.
Wavy Hair with Diffuser
The best thing about using a blow dryer to style your hair is that it is generally easier and quicker than another means. If you want to get movement, body and waves without too much time or curling iron then simply grab your hair dryer with a diffuser, some sea salt spray (optional) and finishing spray or wax, evenly distributed from mid-length to ends, scrunch the product in your hair, then use your diffuser to set the curl on high heat and low speed.
Blow Dry Your Hair Straight
A lot of ladies have naturally curly, wavy, frizzy, or dry hair and it takes a lot of time and product to get that salon-straight look. But really all you need to do is use your blow dryer to get straight and smooth hair. Start by sectioning your hair into 2-4 parts, take your big round brush and constantly roll your brush through your hair while you are blow-drying it. It takes about 30-60 seconds to do each section so if you have a lot of hair it can be time consuming but it’s totally worth it for a straight sleek hairstyle that last for days.
Bouncy Voluminous Hairstyle
Volume shows the world that you have healthy thick hair – and that you know a little bit about it. Your blow dryer is the easiest way to get bouncy full hair without the use of lots of curling tools or harmful teasing. Start by sectioning your hair into top to bottom layers and start with the bottom layer. Grab your blow dryer with a nozzle and 2 round brushes. Spin the round brush the entire time you have your blow dryer on your hair and give it a little curl at the bottom and repeat around your hair. Check out this video for a more in-depth explanation.
