I like to think I am a bit of a whiz when it comes to styling my hair.
At times I can be a little OTT, but I like it to sit with bounce, shine and the perfect wave, is that not too much to ask? (I warned you I am over the top). I am lucky to have an incredible hairdresser, and I have pretty much copied (sorry Marie) all of her A-grade styling tips, which allows me to master great hair at home.
Over the years I have learnt it’s more about the tools you use rather than the skills you have, and it doesn’t get much better than the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer to achieve that salon finish at home.
That’s why the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer has been my little saviour. It creates volume, dries my hair so much faster than my past hairdryers and because the motor is in the handle its super light to hold with more balance it allows me to master those tricky hair twists with my brush. Winning!
Now that I have Aston I have even less time to stand around drying my hair (because ain’t nobody got time for that). I have thick hair, and with the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, I can dry my whole head under ten minutes which was impossible with my past hair dryers.
My three tips to master the perfect blow-dry at home (just in time for the party season) are:
1. After washing your hair, spray a thickening spray at the roots to get your hair gritty. Then blast the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer with the smoothing nozzle attached to dry your hair fast (you will be shocked how fast it dries your hair). I concentrate on the roots of my hair and create volume, lifting sections of my hair up with my fingers, so they heat is always on the root. I like to use the diffuser once my hair is almost dry to create extra volume.
2. Once your hair feels dry, I use a round thermal brush to smooth it out starting at the root, glide the brush through the hair towards the hair ends applying the heat. Move the brush backwards and forwards to create volume always going backwards away from the face.
3. Using a twisting technique, remove the brush from the hair. Repeat the same technique throughout the hair, before finishing off the blow-dry I like to blast my head with cool air to give an extra life. Spray to hold it in place.
