How to… blowdry like a pro

Stylist Anne Veck shares her professional blowdry secret.


Direct the heat down the hair shaft. Doing this seals the hair cuticle and gives it sheen. Work from back to front. Drying hair in sections ensures that it's dried properly and it helps keep frizz at bay.
















Never use the highest heat setting - it singes your hair, dries it out and leaves it prone to breakage. Low to medium heat is much healthier.  Keep the blowdryer moving so your hair doesn't overheat and burn. Never blowdry hair your hair when it's dirty - it's the fastest way to damage your hair.














Always use a heat protector before you blowdry - it's insurance for your hair, especially when used with a good leave-in conditioner. Never blowdry your hair with a brush attachment. They have hard plastic bristles that chew up your hair big time. Use a concentrator nozzle and a paddle brush to get your hair sleek and smooth, and spritz hairspray for a frizz-free finish.
