Ultimate for longer hair styles to create smooth, sleek and shiny styles without lots of volume:
- Gently lift hair at the roots and sweep down the hair shaft.
- Follow your brushstrokes with the blow dryer.

- For the ends of your hair, use the same motion choosing upward, downward or alternate both to create some wave and movement to your look!
