Sleek Straight Hair

If your hair is curly, you can easily pull the straight stick style using your blow dryer. Before you start blow-drying your hair, first apply a heat protectant spray that will prevent your hair from heat damage.

Next, divide your hair into two sections and start at the top close to the root and blow-dry your hair brushing it with a large round brush holding it at 90 degrees to the tip. Repeat the process until all your hair is done.

The result is sleek straight hair that will excite people with curly hair. If you want to create volume, use a larger brush.

The Textured Hairstyle

You can still rock the straight hairstyle, but this time with added texture. If you don’t have to wash your hair in the morning, apply dry shampoo at the roots for volume.

Use a paddle or a round brush together with your blow dryer from the root of your strands towards the tip working in small sections as you go.

This will create some soft-looking beautiful waves with volume.

Volumizing Bob

If you have short hair and rock the bob hairstyle, you can add some volume to give it a unique look using your blow dryer. You will achieve more volume on your bob by blow-drying your hair upside down.

It makes your root lift off your scalp to create more volume. Blow-drying hair the usual way smooths it in a downward direction which will not give you more volume.

Big/ Tight Curls

By only using your blow dryer and a round brush, you can achieve either big or tight curls, depending on your preference. The difference between the two curls is a result of the size of the round brush you use.

For tight curls, go for a small round brush and a bigger one for big curls.  Twist your hair around the brush and keep pulling it until the end of the strand as you blow-dry simultaneously to get beautiful curls.
