Salon Blow Dry? Here’s A Blow-By-Blow Account

Here at our hair salon in Yaletown, we love seeing customers’ fresh-out-of-the-salon confidence boost. You know the one we mean: when you walk down the street with your new style and you feel like you can take on the world!

But what do you do in the weeks following, when your style isn’t brand new, yet it’s still too early for another cut or colour? How do keep your confidence boost going?

You get a blow dry of course!

Why get a blow dry in Vancouver?

Whatever the length of your hair, there’s nothing quite like a professional blow dry; the perfect way to make sure you look and feel your best. That’s because a blow dry can:

  • Pep your hair up
  • Boost your confidence
  • Complete your look for everything from a big meeting to a night out on the town
  • Let you try something new

It’s no wonder blow dries have become so popular!

1. Straight to the point

If you normally have waves or curls in your hair, you may want to opt for a straight blow dry. With the help of the right round brush, we’ll tame your wild locks, straightening them out without sacrificing any of the hair’s body. Combine this style with a sharp suit for a boss look that’s pure fire!

2. Flipping out

The flip or the flick is a classic style. Basically, we blow your hair out straight until the ends, which we curl. For a more playful look, opt for a flip up and out. Want something more sexy? Have the curl come inward, toward your décolletage.

3. Turning up the volume

Struggling with flat hair? Use your blow dry to turn up the volume! We can boost your hair’s body. This is a great option if you’re going out at night – be it for a gala or for a date with your honey!

4. Doing the wave

For 2019, say “hello” to the wave! What we love about a wave is how versatile it can be. A beachy wave can be the ideal look for a meeting or other daytime event, where you want to be chic, but not look like you’re trying too hard. If you’re going out for a more dressy evening, though, a soft wave with a deep side part instantly creates an old Hollywood glam look. Pair the style with a simple dress and a red lip and you’re sure to steal the show!

Which blow dry is right for you?

With so many options, how do you know which blow dry is right for you? Ask yourself a few simple questions:

  • Where am I going?
  • What am I wearing?
  • What overall look am I trying to create?
  • Is there a specific era my look is inspired by?
  • What reaction do I want from others?

Discuss the answers with your stylist so they’ll be able to help you pick the right blow dry for your wants, needs, and plans. And remember that a blow dry isn’t permanent! That makes it a great way to play with your hair and try something new!  

Maintaining the blow dry magic

When you’re at our hair salon in Yaletown, ask your stylist for blow-dry tips that you can use at home. If you’re having issues with something – for example, your hair always gets caught in the round brush – get some tips!

If you want to do blow dry styles at home, don’t forget to get the right tools and products for the job! Start with a round brush. The size of the brush will determine the level of lift, curl, and bounce in your hair. For example, a big round brush is the way to get volume to the max. If you have short hair though, a Denman or Vent brush may be the way to go. Not sure which brush is right for you? Just ask one of our stylists for help picking!  

You’ll also need some heat tools, like a blow dryer, curling iron, or straightener. Again, ask your stylist for advice about what’s right for you.

The last step is products. From the perfect Smoothing Cream to Curl enhancers to Gels and Texture products, everything you need is waiting for you at our hair salon! To kick your home blow drying up a notch, we’d recommend ALWAYS using Olaplex No. 4 Shampoo and Olaplex No. 5 Conditioner. Then, get a smoother finish with Olaplex No. 6 Smoother. Have damaged or over-stressed hair? Pre-treat it with Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector – gently comb it through towel-dried hair and leave on for at least 10 minutes before shampooing.
