I have a confession to make—until recently I'd never had a blow-dry; at least, not a proper one. I know; how is that possible? It's largely because I seem to ill-time my hairdresser appointments to days and times where I have nowhere to be; no need for a sleek blow-dry. Having already sat in the colourists' chair for upwards of four hours (I have a lot of hair to dye), the last thing I want to do is spend a second longer in it. So, a rough blast it is and, as soon as I can, I'm out the door.
However, this summer I decided to treat myself to a blow-dry before a close friend's wedding. Their later start time meant I actually had time to head to the hairdressers before the nuptials began (I'm always notoriously late so, even if the ceremony begins at 12pm, I don't like to chance it). What I discovered, as I took in the handiwork of my stylist forty minutes later, was that I like blow-dries. I really like blow-dries.
Never before had my hair looked so good. It was full! Shiny! Bouncy! And now I get it—why all of my friends and the influencers I follow get them as regularly as their purse-strings permit. As such, I'm now constantly on the look-out for new blow-dry tears to take to the hairdresser when my next appointment comes around. Assuming this is something you too do ahead of your salon session, I decided to pull together some of my favourite blow-dry hairstyles for your beauty pleasure.
Whether you prefer sleek and straight or curly and full-bodied, whether your tresses or long or chin-grazing, I've found the perfect blow-dry for you.
