No two blow dries are created equal.
If you’re like us, the New Year means you’ve got a litany of self-improvement goals to tackle STAT. Your list is so long, you may find yourself too overwhelmed to keep your hair looking fly with regular blowouts. Before you resign to embark on your month-long juice cleanse journey wearing a perma-topknot, read these DIY FYIs by a Bumble and bumble blow dry pro. BECKY PEDERSON
STEP ONE: Choose the blow dry styler that will work best for your hair.
Repair Blow Dry: best for hair that’s dry or damaged from color.
Straight Blow Dry: best for hair that’s course, curly, or frizzy.
All-Style Blow Dry: works on everyone, but best for hair that’s fine or oily
STEP TWO: Spray Thickening Hairspray all over damp hair, from roots to ends.
STEP THREE: Rake your selected blow dry styler through your hair, from roots to ends.
STEP FOUR: Hand dry your hair until it is about 80% dry. To hand dry, use your fingers to move your hair back and forth across your head. This creates volume, shape, and helps eliminate cowlicks.
STEP FIVE: Section hair into five small sections. Blow dry each section using a round or flat brush, directing airflow down the length of the hair. Start with the sections at the top of your crown and work your way down and back.
STEP SIX: Finish by spraying Cityswept Finish through your hair’s midshaft and ends. This will hold your style while creating separation and sheen.
