New and improved SalonDry Pro 2300 W Philips HP8250 HairDryer--20% lighter, 30% more airflow
Finding the perfect dryer is the real key to trying out this look yourself. Look for a hairdryer that will maintain the health and vitality of the hair and protect it from over drying and excessive heat damage. Adjust the heat setting to suit your hair type. If you have fine, dry or coloured hair, use a lower setting and always keep the airflow moving. If you blow dry your hair more than once a week then it is a good idea to use a conditioning mask regularly to replace lost moisture and keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. An incredibly feminine way of wearing hair long and loose, this look became known as 'Easy Glamour' at Paris Fashion Week and is popular with celebrities including SJP and rising starlet, Amanda Seyfried. For this style, hair is kept romantically undone with rough partings and soft, flexible tumbling natural waves.

The CoolShot sets you hair and holds the style for longer. When you have finished drying a section, press the cool shot button and direct the cool airflow at your hair. This fixes your style and adds shine.
The volume diffuser has been specially developed to gently dry both straight and curly or wavy hair. The volume diffuser emits a gentle airflow and allows you to give your style volume and bounce. If you want to use the diffuser on your hair just snap the diffuser onto the appliance. To add volume at the roots, insert the pins into your hair in such a way that they touch your scalp. Make rotating movements with the dryer to distribute the warm air evenly through your hair. For a style with lots of movement and volume, use the diffuser attachment. Tilt your head and cup your hair into it, lifting up the hair to create volume at the root.
Curly or wavy hair: Hold the diffuser at a distance of 10-15cm from your head to let the hair dry gradually. In the meantime, you can style your hair with your free hand or with a comb. You can also scrunch locks of hair in your hand to model the curls and waves while drying. This prevents the curls from sagging or becoming frizzy.
Long hair: To dry long hair, you can spread out locks of hair on top of the diffuser. Alternatively, you can comb the hair downwards with the pins of the diffuser while drying.
Get the look:
During the daytime, opt for a 1970s style loose centre parting with waves through the lower sections. For the evening, lose the parting and sweep hair back or to the side so that the waves cascade softly through the full length of the hair.
1. Add mousse to freshly washed hair. Make a centre parting, and then roughly blow-dry all the hair until its 70-80% dry
2. Clip up the top half of the hair out of the way so you can continue blow-drying with a medium size round brush underneath.
3. Wrap a section of the hair around the brush and apply the airflow while half rolling and unrolling hair around the brush. This technique adds a wave to hair without stretching it. When the section is dry, roll it once more fully onto the brush. Allow the hair to cool before releasing it.
4. Repeat this technique all over the hair underneath, then release the top half of the hair and continue until all the hair is dry.
5. Loosen the waves with your fingers and then blow-dry on a cool setting.
Understand: This look works well on all types of mid to long length hair and can help to create movement and body even in fine, slightly damaged hair.
Care: Adjust the heat setting to suit your hair type. If you have fine, dry or coloured hair, use a lower setting and always keep the airflow moving. If you blow dry your hair more than once a week then it is a good idea to use a conditioning mask regularly to replace lost moisture and keep your hair looking and feeling healthy.
Create: This look is all about maximizing movement so don’t use too many products. A fist-sized amount of mousse is all you will need if your hair is fine. Mousse is great since it gives body and creates hold without stickiness and works best when used in conjunction with a hair dryer.
