Find out how to blow-dry short hair

Blow-drying short hair to create loose, natural-looking movement, or any other kind, can take a little bit of practice to get right, especially if your hair doesn't simply air-dry into your dream style. You may need to use certain products to get certain results, and figure out just how to use your styling tools to give you the hairdo you really want.

Of course, different techniques will create different look so it all depends on the kind of hairstyle you want to achieve.

Sleek and shiny: For a smooth, straight hairstyle – like a bowl cut or blunt bob – a sleek hair texture is perfect. Blow-dry with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream, guiding the hair with a round brush and directing the airflow downward the whole time. Comb the hair through once dried and mist with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray for an ultra-soft, frizz-free sheen.

Natural waves: To get a more relaxed, natural-looking hairstyle, loose waves are a great option. Mist dry or damp hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and then twist a section of hair. Hold the end of the twist and blow-dry completely. Repeat all over your head, finger-comb and scrunch the hair. Mist with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

Curls: If your hair is naturally curly, apply Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse to damp hair and then blow-dry using a diffuser. Scrunch as you go and then run a wide-tooth comb through the hair once it's totally dry. Mist with hairspray to and you're all set.

Windswept: For a wispy, lightweight style, a windswept texture is a very cute option. It'll add some extra romance to your look, and it's right on-trend this season. Rough-dry the hair after applying Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse. Run the dryer back through your hair in quick, sweeping movements and remove the nozzle if there is one. Spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, massage and sculpt to give the hair a mussed matte finish.
