Do you recall practicing roller sets back in school? Whether you loved them or not, those roller sets actually gave you the foundation skills for blow-drying! You may also recall the gaps in the hair from the roller placement. Once the hair was dry and the rollers were released from the hair there were visible gaps that you then had to remove.
Fast forward to today! We want to set you up for success in your blow dry’s and Sam has a game changing technique that will result in outstanding volume exactly where it is needed as well as guarantee no gaps from sectioning.
NOTE: Before you proceed be sure to watch parts 1-4 of our Foundational Blow Dry Series.
Sectioning is critical!
Rather than utilizing conventional horizontal partings, Sam presents us with an alternative approach with diagonal sections. This is the key for ensuring no gaps and ensure maximum volume in the center of the volume zone! Check out the pattern Sam has drawn out for you in the video clip.
NOTE: This technique is going begin by parting from the right side of the volume zone with a diagonal-forward section
NOTE: Once you have the moisture out of each section it is essential to set each section:
Pick up the section and set horizontally:
Secure the curl with a Sam Villa Dry Clip at the base to allow the section to cool and rest
Move on to the next section. You will begin on the wide side of this section
Once you have the moisture out of each section it is essential to set each section. Follow the technique as described above, immediately after drying each section.
This technique gives you the blow dry focus needed for the volume zone and no more gaps in your end results! You can be sure your client will notice this alternative approach and keep coming back for more, as your blow dry will last longer for them. Another way to change things up to build your skills!
Stay tuned for the final part (part 6) in the Foundational Blow Dry Series, where we show how to finish your blow out!
