3 hairstyles to create with a hairdryer

Do you think a hairdryer is just for blow-drying your hair after washing? Think again! Here are 3 pretty hairstyles that you can create using your hairdryer.

Wavy locks

To add a twist to your bob or long tresses, your hairdryer can easily replace your curling tongs to give you on-trend waves.

The technique. On just-washed damp hair, spritz on a salt-water spray such as Jean Louis David’s Beach Spray to add texture to your locks. Then select some large sections to twist down to the tips before drying. Preferably use your hairdryer’s concentrator nozzle to direct the blast of air towards the desired strand, with an upwards and downwards movement. Repeat this all over and then scrunch your locks gently in your hands to finish off the hairstyle.

Perfect straightening

No, straighteners aren’t the only way to get poker-straight locks! To get an ultra-sleek finish, simply go for blow-dry straightening.

The technique. Pre-dry your hair until it is almost dry. Then, use a flat brush to style it strand by strand, pulling down on your locks from the roots to the tips with the brush. Follow this movement with your hairdryer moving up and down, not forgetting to pay extra attention to the ends.

Cascading ultra-sculpted curls

For curly hair the hairdryer is the ideal device for enhancing your locks, and the best way to sculpt your curls.

The technique. After applying a thermo-protective treatment to your hair, fit the diffuser attachment onto the end of your hairdryer to spread the heat evenly and so protect the hair fibre from the blast of hot air. Use your dryer on a low power setting and a medium heat setting to prevent your locks from becoming tangled. Start by drying your hair upside-down to create more volume. Then, lift your head back up and place your strands on the diffuser, moving it from the bottom to the top with a spring-like action. This allows your curls to grip onto the diffuser’s spikes and it keeps their shape. You will then get beautiful cascading, frizz-free curls.
