Hollywood style: How to create the perfect blow-dry hairstyle for voluminous hair

The origin of blow-dry hairstyles can be traced back to the 1930s. At that time, the first hair styling techniques were developed to do justice to the voluminous and perfectly styled hair of the movie stars. In the golden days of Hollywood, glamor and elegance were everywhere, and actresses of the era proudly flaunted their gorgeous waves and curls. And the trend is more relevant than ever.

An elegant, voluminous blow dry is not only the hallmark of red carpet stars, but also a timeless hairstyle that revives the glamor of yesteryear. Whether it's for a special event, a date, or just for yourself, a perfect blow-dry can boost your confidence and make you look radiant all day long. This article will show you how to create a blow dry hairstyle at home.

Start with freshly washed and towel dried hair. Apply a generous amount of heat-resistant leave-in conditioner and gently detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb. The conditioner helps retain moisture and protects your hair from the heat.

Before you start blow-drying, it's important to spray your hair with a good quality heat protectant spray. Heat can dry out and damage hair, but a good heat protectant creates a protective barrier and minimizes potential damage.

Divide your hair into several sections and secure them with bobby pins. Start blow drying at the back of your head and work your way towards the front. Use a natural-bristle round brush to grip each section as you wrap hair around the brush from root to tip. Now blow dry the hair with a blow dryer that has a concentrator nozzle to control the air circulation.

To create extra volume, hold the round brush close to the roots and blow-dry the roots in opposite directions. This provides extra fullness and prevents the hair from lying flat on the head. An additional volume powder also ensures a long-lasting curve at the roots.

For a classic blow-dry finish, curl the ends of your hair outward, away from your face. For a more modern twist, curl the ends inward, toward your face. Work your way through each section until all hair is dry and styled.

After your hair is completely dry, you can put some shine serum on your palms and gently sweep it over your hair to add shine and softness. Finally, use some hairspray to hold your perfect blow dry in place and prevent frizz.

Creating a professional blow-dry hairstyle may take some practice at first, but with the right technique and products, you can perfect this elegant styling at home. Take your time with prep, heat protection, and proper blow-dry technique to achieve the volume and shine you want. With a breathtaking blow dry you are guaranteed admiring glances.
