TIP #1: KEEP IT CLASSIC “A great way to achieve a bouncy blow dry is using a blow dryer and a round brush,” shares Bethel. The secret is to “pin each section with a duckbill clip after it’s blow dried.” Carly recommends applying the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Full Form Soft Mousse to the roots, R&Co Dallas Thickening Spray to the mid-lengths and the Oribe Straight Away Smoothing Blowout Cream to smooth the ends before blow drying can commence.
TIP #2: THE BIGGER THE BETTER Rollers are the trusted hair tool to achieve a bouncy blow dry, standing the test of time. And despite what you may think, it works on all hair types, you just have to find the right tools for you. Straight and fine hair types: Maximise roots with volumising primers and creams Wavy hair types: Start with styling spray or cream for additional volume Curly and coily hair types: Use olive oil moisturiser, high-power straighteners, and frizz-fighting products for a smooth, silky blow out.
TIP #3: BRUSH ALL THE WAY Cutting out the middleman, the blow dry round brush saves the two-step heat styling needed to create the bouncy curls. Allowing your hair to partially dry, you’ll want to spritz through your favourite heat protectant to protect the strands. Then, section your hair (ideally one to two inches thick) using claw clips and quickly swoop through with a brush to release any tangles.
