Looking for ultimate polish in your finished blow dry’s? Well, then a paddle brush is your new best friend! Wrap drying with a paddle brush is second to none when it comes to a smooth and polished finish.
In this second of six parts to our Foundational Blow Dry Series, we continue where we left off in part one with wrap drying. We use the head shape as our foundation to shape and smooth the hair allowing for quick depletion of moisture with a controlled directional process. Wrap drying will also eliminate unwanted frizz and fly-a ways.

NOTE: We layered these two products together.
Let’s review: (watch Part 1 here on how to apply hair products before you blow dry)
We begin at the front area, as this is the area that will stand to become frizzy if not first tended to.
HOT TIP: Be sure to keep the dryer at least three to six inches away from the hair and brush to deter heat from compromising the hair and brush
The technique of wrap drying is especially beneficial in the course of creating ponytails. When you come to the back of the side area, position your paddle brush into the hair and shift the direction with your paddle brush downward toward the nape area. This will ensure an ideal smooth directional finish to create an effortless ponytail.
Wrap drying is all about the direction – direct your brush in the direction you desire the hair to move. The direction along with the head as a foundation and styling product will result in a smooth shiny finish to be proud of!
Stay tuned for Part 3 as we show you how to add curls using your thermal round brush.
