Hairstyling/Blow dryer technique


side swept hair
side swept hair  
I am 32 years old male. i have straight hair. few years ago my hair dresser cut my hair in a way that my hair fall on my forehead. my hair used to go backwards from sides but now with a curl they fall on the forehead i have tried all the hair cuts but to no avail. i have been trying to dry my hair with blow dryer and i have been successful but a small curl or wave still remains which i am unable to figure out how to remove. I just want to know which way to blow the hair from without creating volume.

You need to put a bit of tension on the hair in order to smooth out the curl.   Blowing it the opposite way you want it to lay and then back again with a brush and some tension should smooth out the curl.  You'll need to do this until the hair is completely dry. If you leave it damp, it will curl up again.

I can answer questions on all types of hairstyling, cutting, designing, coloring, corrective color, perming techniques,product knowledge, and in general, anything that has anything to do with hair. PLEASE NOTE: I am a professional designer and trainer. I do hair and teach advanced classes to licensed designers. I do not, under any circumstances, recommend doing chemical services including but not limited to relaxers, perms, color, highlights, or any other chemical service at home. I will not tell you how to use professional products nor will I tell you how to do your color at home. What I CAN do is arm you with current and accurate information and help you to be able to better communicate with your stylist/designer. I can also help you with what you need to do at home to maintain, protect, and treat your hair.
