This is my hair ,out of the shower.

Apply a product that will moisturize your hair and protect it from the heat. I’m using Living Proof PHD, it is a 5 in 1 that adds shine, moisture, volume, and frizz elimination! Dime or quarter size depending on your hair thickness and length.

20140520-114755-42475745.jpg
Put the product on your hands like your putting lotion on them, fronts and backs of your hands, then apply roots to ends until your hands are clean.

20140520-114949-42589072.jpg
Comb the product through out with your vent brush.

20140520-115019-42619323.jpg
I’m using a Babyliss Pro ItaliaBrava
It is 2000 watts of hairstyling awesomeness with adjustable heat settings and a turbo button! I use high heat and high power for my thick hair, lower your heat for finer hair.

Start with the vent brush blowing the hair around your face straight back. Follow the brush with the dryer to smooth your your hair line.

20140520-115824-43104902.jpg
Section an inch of hair around your hair line, in front of your ears.

20140520-120011-43211551.jpg
Push your round brush down to gather the inch section and roll back toward your face.

20140520-120111-43271074.jpg
Blow the section away from your face, notice my section is the same width as my brush. Keeping your sections clean and small will allow you maintain control.

20140520-120230-43350263.jpg
Pull the brush through the lower portion of the section , still blowing away from the face.

20140520-123929-45569062.jpg
Twist the brush lightly while moving down the section, the nozzle of the dryer should follow the section until you corkscrew the brush out of your hair!

20140520-124100-45660422.jpg
I have bangs/ fringe that I am growing out; so to incorporate them I set the dryer on turbo and blast with hot heat holding it in my hands, then cool shot to set.

20140520-124217-45737550.jpg
Repeat on the other side .

20140520-124339-45819055.jpg
Next section is the underneath section.

20140520-124427-45867437.jpg
Split the sections in two. The front and the underneath are what frames your face, this is why I start with the most important section.

20140520-124548-45948840.jpg
Notice the section is the same width as my brush. Brush the hair into your round brush same manor as the front, just backwards.

20140520-124933-46173392.jpg
Slowly cork screwing the section till the ends drop out following the brush with the nozzle.

20140520-125026-46226062.jpg
Now that the underneath and front are styled, drop the rest of your hair down, and spray with a little more product. living proof flex spray will protect your hair from the heat and add a slight bit more hold.

20140520-125328-46408928.jpg
Grab your crown section to smooth the top hairs .

20140520-125411-46451909.jpg
Smooth both sides of the crown.

20140520-125448-46488412.jpg
Always finishing a section the way it will lay, so blow dry the cuticle smooth, and down away from the face.

20140520-125539-46539105.jpg
Cork screw this section slowly to finish the ends.

20140520-125622-46582392.jpg
Incorporate all of the sections together with the round brush.

20140520-130301-46981169.jpg
Marrying the top and bottom section will push the curls in a similar direction, because the middle section of hair is only 50 percent dry it will leave humidity in the hair, so your hair will get bigger as it drys.

20140520-130450-47090578.jpg
Notice there is hair that isn’t smooth, this is a 20 min fix so don’t expect JLo @ the Grammys when you are done.

20140520-130548-47148545.jpg
Smooth some of the sections together at the ends to avoid frizzy ends.

20140520-130640-47200385.jpg
Because you have wavy, or curly hair you can brush these sections together with your vent brush fusing the hair together. ( no recommended for straight hair)

20140520-130800-47280019.jpg Brush these sections together flipping the ends up and smoothing them with your hands.

20140520-130847-47327970.jpg
Apply a pea size of a moisturizer, or shine drop… See PHD does it all!

20140520-130935-47375795.jpg

20140520-130935-47375407.jpg
Smooth it through your hair, away from your face in a twisting motion.

20140520-131025-47425172.jpg
Make a duck face and take selfie!

Cuz your done baby!

Fashion Dynasty Note:
Why a professional dryer? This dyer will get hotter and work more efficiently than a cheap dryer, because it is powered by Ferrari it will far out last the toy Motor in your 20$ dryer. Be sure and get at least a wattage of 1875! Babyliss, Rusk , Conair are my go to dryers, irons and tools!
