Beachy Waves

Beachy Waves It might not be summer anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still rock those waves you love so much. And, this also happens to be one of the easiest ways to style your hair with a blow dryer. Wet your hair, then separate it into two sections. Loosely braid each section and secure it at the bottom. Blow dry your braids until dry, then finger comb and you’re ready to go.


Stick Straight

Stick Straight I have curly hair and I used to spend hours every week battling it so that it was straight. I’ve long since given up, but if you haven’t, your blow dryer is the best way to get the look you want. Start at the top and blow dry your hair in sections, brushing with a large round brush as you go. It sounds so easy, but this method works so well you may never go back.


Blow-drying your hair is an easy way to achieve the look you want. It can help you straighten, smooth, and add body and volume to your hair. Start by using a high-quality blow dryer that has a range of settings. Use a diffuser attachment to help reduce frizz and give your hair more volume. When blow-drying, hold the blow dryer at least 6 to 8 inches away from your head and move it around to ensure even drying.

When blow-drying straight hair, start at the top and blow dry your hair in sections, brushing with a large round brush as you go. This will help smooth out the hair and give it a sleek, straight look. Use a lower temperature setting to ensure that your hair doesn’t get too hot.

For curly hair, blow-drying can help reduce the amount of time it takes to style it. Start with damp hair and use a round brush to smooth out the curls as you blow-dry. This will help reduce frizz and give your hair a more polished look.


Volumizing Bob

Volumizing Bob If you have short hair and want to give it some oomph, your blow dryer is the tool you need. Experts recommend blow drying your hair against the grain, which gives it lots of volume. What an easy way to give your bob some life and personality. You’re going to love it!


Another great way to add volume to a bob hairstyle is by using a round brush while blow drying. This technique helps to lift the hair at the roots, creating a fuller and more voluminous look. Additionally, using a volumizing product such as mousse or root-lifting spray can also help to add body and texture to the hair. It's important to choose the right blow dryer for your hair type, as some have higher heat and power settings that can better cater to thicker or coarser hair. Don't be afraid to experiment with different techniques and products to find the perfect volumizing solution for your bob.


Big Curls

Big Curls Sometimes you just want a curly style, am I right? Your blow dryer is a great tool for applying that extra dose of heat that helps hold the curl. Start with slightly damp hair and roll it in sections around large Velcro curlers. Blast the curls with your blow dryer until they are completely dry. Spritz with hair spray and unroll. Easy, right?


Curl enthusiast alert! Embrace the voluminous, bouncy look with ease. For perfect big curls, aim for that salon-worthy finish by parting your hair into large sections – the bigger the curler, the better the bounce. Patience is key; don't rush the drying process, or you'll risk droopy curls. Once completely dry, let your locks cool for that extra springiness before gently releasing them. Give them a flirty flip, and voilà, you'll have glamorous curls that look like a million bucks – all with the humble help of your trusty blow dryer.


Textured Pixie

Textured Pixie The pixie haircut is trending in a big way these days, so a textured look gives you volume and a great new look that will get you loads of compliments. To achieve this look with your blow dryer, start with towel dried hair. Add just a dab of product, then blow dry while finger combing your hair. There – all done!


Smooth, but with Some Texture

Smooth, but with Some Texture If you want mainly straight hair, but don’t go for the completely straight look, try this straight, but textured look. It’s one of my favorites because it looks great, but comes together in just a few minutes. Use a paddle brush, starting at the roots and working your way toward the ends, working in sections as you go.


This paragraph discusses a specific hairstyle that can be achieved using a blow dryer.

Overall, this paragraph provides a brief overview of one of the seven ways to style hair using a blow dryer, and highlights the simplicity and versatility of this particular style.


Straight Bangs, Wavy All over

Straight Bangs, Wavy All over All of these hairstyles are great, but if you have bangs, you’ll need to pay even closer attention to your blow dry style. Use any of the techniques above to create the straight, wavy or curly hair you want. Then use a straight brush to dry your bangs, so they are straight. You can blow dry them straight across your forehead or off to the side.

Did you know your blow dryer could do so many cool hairstyles? I have tried all of these and I promise that they work really well. Which one will you try first?

I have really thick hair so it takes a while to blow dry it. So "quick" for me is a half an hour...

I don't like this post only because my hair types very different and complex. I've searched everywhere on how to manage my hair. The pictures don't sync up to what you're writing about only because I know where some of the pictures are from so it's like what I'm reading doesn't match the picture. Sorry to say that but it's a critic for me that I noticed.

Thank a higher power you've got thick hair. Mine takes 1 0-15 mins to dry. I wish it took longer. :-/

Chelsea, me too
