This is definitely a style for when you want something majorly glam (it involves a *lot* of hairspray and styling so isn’t ideal for your every-day chilling or WFH). Inspired by the Hollywood starletts of the 1920s and 60s – this style is achieved using a hairdryer (duh) for lots of volume, and curling tongs to achieve sleek waves. It’s worn with a side-parting for that classic red carpet look.
6 blow dry styles to ask your hairdresser for this Christmas
Let’s face it – the past year (or two) kind of put a lot of things on the backburner. Summer holidays, parties, and, (sigh), even Christmas – it’s fair to say our social lives have taken a bit of a hit. All that has meant one thing for sure – getting glammed up has decidedly not been top of our to-do list. And, whilst we’ve loved the makeup-free life, the putting off of hair washing for yet another day, and the endless rotation of comfy clothes – it’s time for a change.
Yep – we’re calling it: glam is back. And this year, we’re going all out (for Christmas, at least – January is still up for debate). We’re talking festive manis, killer makeup looks, and of course – the obligatory pre-Christmas blow dry. Really, is there anything better than the salon-fresh-feeling of a perfect blow dry, and the seemingly impossible effortless-yet-put-together look it manages to achieve? We think not. Plus, of course – who doesn’t love the in-salon hair-wash-head-massage combo (that’s your pre-Christmas de-stressing sorted, too).
We’ve put together a list of our fave blow dry styles that we’ll definitely be asking our hairdressers for this year. So, if you’re ready to get back to glam this year, and you need a little inspo: we’ve got you covered.
