The Proper Blowdry

THE BASIS OF A GREAT HAIRSTYLE.

A proper blow dry can leave hair looking shiny and healthy with great body and movement. The trick is to be gentle and take the time that your hair deserves or there will be real risk of losing that slick style.

If you’re wondering how to blow dry hair, invest in a good quality hairdryer first. If yours is about as effective as a wheezy hand dryer, your hair’s not going to get the best from your blow dry.

Blow drying men’s hair works with a huge variety of hairstyles. It doesn’t matter if your cut's carefree and wild, high and tight or a punk mohawk: a good blow dry is almost as important as the hair product you use.
