Easy way to blow-dry the back of your hair?

Asked by Jude (32126points) March 1st, 2009

I have thick, medium length layered hair. How do I get to the back, styling-wise? The sides/front look great, but, I want them to blend in well with the back of my head. And, I can’t see what the hell I am doing when blow-drying there.

Any tips?

I usually turn my head upside down and start drying the crown of my head. Most of your hair is there and if you start with the ends you will over dry them and damage your hair. Once the crown is dry it will be much easier to flip your hair forward and make the rest of your hair blend together. Also, a great cut makes all the difference in the world.

I agree 100% with Judi. She said what I was going to say.

You should also try sectioning your hair while you blowdry.

^ I do the same as Judi. It works great for quick-drying long hair. Plus it gives more volume/lift, which often makes it easier to style.

Definitely section your hair off, it makes it much easier for styling. Just as much as a good hair cut is needed, good styling products and tools make the job MUCCCCH easier. I suggest using a flat iron or curling iron if your more comfortable with it, since MOST people find it easier to use a tool like that in the back than to try to round brush it themselves. The easiest way to do that is to start at the nape with a fairly thin section, get it dry, and then flat iron/ curl it right then, it helps save time and extra work if you do everything while you already have it sectioned off. By the way, the COOL SHOT button on your blow dryer is a wonderful invention! Once you heat up a section, cool it off, it will lock your style in place, heat opens the cuticle, cool closes it to lock shape in. it also helps with volume at crown when round brushing. I hope this helps.

happy styling!
