- Section and clip hair into four parts: one in the front, back, and on each side.
- Blow-dry each section separately, always using a nozzle pointed at a 90-degree angle, for the most consistent, straightest, and shiniest results. Use a flat brush in one hand and a blow-dryer in the other. Take a strip of hair (about brush-width) into your brush. Using your brush as the lead, move the brush down the hair from roots to ends, following behind with your blow-dryer.
- After completing each section, repeat the blow-drying techniques with a round brush for smoothness. Hello, fabulous hair.
