How to blow-dry hair for volume

Blow-dry hair and bring that added touch of volume to your party hairstyle.

Blow-drying isn’t just for salons and stylists. Make your locks the talk of the room at your next event with a wavy hairstyle that radiates lift and volume, and will last as long as you do.

Let the ghd air® hairdryer be your styling essential for wavy hair – you’ll get that root lift and bouncy finish you’re after. To be on your way to voluptuous volume, use the ghd round ceramic brush whilst applying the heat to help build volume into your hairstyle.

Ride the wave of this classic look for your next event and find out how to get volume in your hair with this ghd step-by-step guide.

How to blow-dry hair for volume:

1. Prep damp hair and twist while drying

2. Section hair and blow-dry using a round ceramic brush

3. Work towards parting then gently brush through

step one: Prep damp hair and twist while drying

Prep damp hair with ghd root lift spray. Take small sections of your hair and roughly twist as you blow-dry hair to create movement. Shake out and loosen each strand with your fingers once it’s mostly dry, continue this technique around your whole head.

step two: Section hair and blow-dry using a round ceramic brush

Section hair into a top and bottom section and blow dry using the ghd air® hairdryer and a ghd ceramic brush to create those voluminous curls. Choose a brush that suits your hair length. Larger barrel brushes are best for long hair while a smaller barrel can curl and create waves in short locks. As you finish blow-drying each section, take a hair clip and secure the curled hair in a roll to cool, this will help set the style.

step three: Work towards parting then gently brush through

Work up the head in sections towards the parting and then gently brush through for an airy and voluminous wavy hairstyle. This should leave you with big, bouncy kinks. Finish with a misting of ghd final fix hairspray to keep your blow-dried locks in place.

Voluminous, blow-dried hair is so easy to achieve with this technique. You’ll be left with a show stopping, wavy hairstyle that turns heads wherever you go.
