So, you want to invest a little more time and care into your look. You want effortless volume, shape and movement, because you and your hair are getting dressed up – and you have somewhere to go.

“After years of natural, air-dried textures, a more polished blow dry with great volume and body feels super luxurious. Perfect for those moments when you want to go out and feel full of confidence.” – Luke Hersheson

Inspired by our signature Hershesons London Blow Dry Bar menu, we deconstruct 3 different Effortless Blow Dries, so you can recreate your perfect look back home.

Half and half

Whether you’ve got fine, flat hair or simply want to maximise your natural volume, this look is all about adding body from root to tip, then concentrating large, barreling movement towards the ends. The front has a curtain-like sweep to frame your face and really accentuate your cheekbones.

Think the ‘90s supermodels: it’s a real power blow dry that exudes confidence and will easily take you from day to night. Arm yourself with smoothing, body-building Zhoosh Foam and these blow dry brushes to create lift at the root, and add movement at the ends. Pull the front section forward to create that face-framing sweep. You can find out about our signature ‘pinch’ technique here.

Wavy gravy

This is a far more laid-back look with a piecey texture and a super loose wave. It’s tousled, a bit beachy and feels like second-day hair – great in a centre parting or when you flick the front to one side. Gisele, Gigi Hadid and Olivia Palermo look great with this look – but the key is to prevent fuzz before adding in the beachy movement.

Press the water out of your hair after washing to remove moisture – winding your hair up in a towel will only create a halo of fuzz later. Instead, apply one to two pumps of Almost Everything Cream while your hair is wet to beat frizz. Brush it through and rough dry. Then use a tong, wrapping large sections loosely around the barrel for just a moment to get that effortless wave. Leave the ends free from the tong to keep things looking super natural.

Big and Brushed

There’s a kind of vintage, classic sophistication to this look, with its smooth, shiny lengths and elegant shape at the front. The slight side parting and height at the front really elevates the look, as worn by Dua Lipa and Jennifer Lawrence. Layering Almost Everything Cream beneath Zhoosh Foam will help you achieve smooth, bouncy movement before you blow dry. Then create the look back home with our 6 Steps To A Big, Bouncy Blow Dry.
