Smoothing hair quickly and efficiently is essential for stylists, and it comes down to two things: a powerful blowdryer and a good brush technique.

Sam Villa, cofounder and chief creative officer of Sam Villa and global artistic ambassador for Redkendemonstrates his technique HERE.

Villa uses The Sam Villa Vision professional ionic blow dryer because it delivers maximum power while using minimal energy. 

Insert a paddle brush into hair horizontally, moving it to the right and then to the left, to really secure hair in the brush and create more tension.

Pull brush down the hair followed by the blowdryer using a narrow nozzle directly pointed on strands to concentrate heat and air flow to promote a smooth, stretched, polished surface.
