Did you think blow-drying was just for women? Think again! Blow-drying has more than one string to its bow for giving gentlemen plenty of style! Here are some excellent reasons why you should give it a go and instructions for successfully styling your locks.
Why opt for blow-drying?
At a time when mid-length hair and undercuts with long locks on top are the height of fashion, gel struggles to sculpt your hair. To style your locks easily whilst avoiding that stiff cardboard, overly shiny gel effect, opt for blow-drying! It takes longer to style your hair, but the result is much more stylish and natural, making it the ideal alternative for taming your locks. Unlike gel, blow-drying also suits all hair types, even the finest of hair to which it adds volume! In 2018 men of today are taking increasingly longer to style their locks, so why don’t you give it a try?
Tips on successful blow-drying for men?
Get your hands on a hair dryer and a round hairbrush with a diameter in proportion with your hair length (a small diameter for short hair and a large diameter for long locks) to make styling easier. Start by selecting a large section of hair, then place a brush underneath it to slowly extend out the section in the direction you wish to create movement, accompanied by the hot blast of the hairdryer. This technique lifts the hair at the roots to maximise the volume. All you need do then is get it to hold by using the hairdryer’s cold air function. Keep going strand by strand, finish it all off with hairspray and that’s all there is to it!
