Women's Easy Blow-dry Style Tips from Famous Stylists

Blow-dry Mistakes

There is nothing like a great hairstyle to make or break a polished look. Sometimes, as women, we tend to read a certain article and immediately rush to perfect the tips and tricks. However, there are just some mistakes that are not worth repeating.

  • Do not dry your hair while it is still extremely wet. Towel dry and brush the hair before starting.
  • Volume is added by the roots; use fingers to pull roots upward.
  • By rolling your hair upward, you are missing the point of start. Start at the root and roll down, then back up.
  • Massive amounts of hairspray causes a style to collapse. Even, light distribution is the best way to keep the hairstyle in place.
  • Do not rush, moving hair before it has had time to cool, can cause it not to set.
  • Use the correct product in the correct place. Using a frizz serum while blow-drying will not stop frizz. It goes on before.
  • Short hair requires a small amount of product before blow-drying so that it does not fall flat.
  • Tackle hair in sections, use clips to keep sections separate.
