Super cute short hair isn’t always wash and run, one of the challenges of having a cropped coif is natural growth patterns are more evident. Andrew Carruthers, Director of Education for Sam Villa, demonstrates how to blow dry short hair.
Carruthers recommends using a Sam Villa Professional Ionic Blow Dryer because it’s small, light and powerful, and a comb instead of a brush to better redirect growth patterns and smooth wave configurations. Prepping with Redken satinwear 02 blow dry lotion will add softness and shine and mixing a bit of Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil will reduce frizz and make the finish smooth and silky.
• Always start with wet hair that has not started to dry, otherwise growth patterns will take over increasing the finishing time. If hair has started to dry, just spritz it.
• Use a Sam Villa Short Cutting Comb – the wide side allows for good direction and the fine side provides great tension. Remember to utilize the spine of the comb for maximum polish.
• Blow dry in an X pattern to redirect, shape and style hair – think directionally and remember that both heat and tension are the keys to a good blow dry.
