Smooth Blowdry

Why not have a go yourself with a friend and create your own masterpiece. Just follow the steps below for this beautiful style, perfect for parties and special occasions.

Smooth Blowdry Step 1

Shampoo and condition your hair.
Smooth Blowdry Step 2

Comb through with a wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles.
Smooth Blowdry Step 3

Partially dry your hair to remove excess moisture.
Smooth Blowdry Step 4

Apply a handful of mousse to the palm of your hand.
Smooth Blowdry Step 5

Using your other hand, spread the mousse through the hair, distributing it evenly from the tips to the ends.
Smooth Blowdry Step 6

Divide your hair into two main sections by clipping the top and sides out of the way.
Smooth Blowdry Step 7

Curve the brush under at the ends to achieve a slight bend. Concentrate on drying the root area first, repeatedly introducing the brush to the roots once it has moved down the length of the hair. Continue the movement until the first section of the hair is dry. Repeat for the other sections until the whole of the back section is completely dry.

Smooth Blowdry Step 8

Release a section of hair from the top and dry it in the same manner. Continue in this way until you have dried all your hair. Finish by smoothing a few drops of serum through the hair to flatten any flyaway ends

Then, working on the hair that is left free and taking one small section at a time, hold the dryer in one hand and a styling brush in the other. Place the brush underneath the first section of hair, positioning it at the roots. Keeping the tension on the hair taut (but without undue stress), move the brush down towards the ends, directing the air flow from the dryer so that it follows the downward movement of the brush.

Use the highest heat or speed setting to remove excess moisture, then switch to medium to finish drying. Point the airflow downwards. This smoothes the cuticles and makes the hair shine. When blow-drying, make sure each section is completely dry before going to the next.
