At its simplest blow styling is drying the hair without setting. It is achieved with heat from hand dryers or lamps. Blow shaping, waving, combing or stretching are all techniques of blow styling. The hair is first softened a little with heat, moulded into shape by a variety of movements, and dressed after allowing to cool. The effects last until the hair is washed again or affected by moisture. To get the best from cut and shaped hair it is best to control the drying process; as with other processes, following a basic guide helps progress.
