Dry Your Hair With Less Heat and This 2-Day Hair Styling Routine (VIDEO)

March 24, 2016

So we’re back with another video for the newly relaunched Be Chic TV, our original web series.

If you’ve been following me for a while you may already know that I JUST started doing my own hair. I used to spend so much money at the beauty parlor before a TV segment or a special event. Blow drying and styling my hair is still a little hard for me but I’ve managed to come up with a two-day routine to make it easier. Let me show you what I mean. Watch video: 

One beauty resolution I’ve actually kept is spending less time drying my hair. I wrote all about it here. 

In New York City the weather changes from one moment to the next. I’m no longer paranoid about messing up my blow out when I see flurries or when it rains because I know I can style it again on my own.

My two-day styling process consists of the following:

Day 1: Wash and dry. After the shower, I apply a light product such as a leave-in conditioner or detangler before combing my hair. I then pass the blow dryer until my hair is 80-90% dry.

I let the rest air dry on its own and go about my day.

Day 2: Style. I blow dry and pin my side swept bangs before curling the rest of the hair with a wand. I pin the hair up as I blow dry.

For more volume and body, it’s best to pin the hair as high as possible and to leave it pinned for a couple of hours.

In the hair tutorial above, I only left it pinned for about 30 minutes but it still got some nice texture.
