The Beauty Diary by Rebekah Scanlan: How to blow dry your hair at home

There’s nothing quite like that freshly blow-dried feeling.

And while we all love a professional blowout, it’s one hair treat that feels like it is impossible to recreate at home (no matter how hard we try).

In fact, it was voted the biggest beauty dilemma in a poll of almost 9000 The Beauty Diary readers, with a staggering 1500 of you calling for help with an at-home blow-dry.

So I’ve brought in the big guns.

Renowned Australian hairstylist Anthony Nader from RAW in Surry Hills, told The Beauty Diary that when it came to recreating a salon worthy blow out, there was one major mistake most of us make.

“People always overdo it with their styling products,” he said. “It’s the biggest mistake I see and hear all the time. Less is always more.”

The MAFS alum was described as ‘unrecognisable’ by some fans when she debuted a much shorter hairdo recently. Picture:

The celebrity stylist recently convinced Married At First Sight alumn Martha Kalifatidis to ditch her extra-long hair extensions in favour of a chic, trendy “lob”. Martha’s loyal fans had a lot to say about the hair transformation, with one declaring on Instagram her new short hairdo made her “completely unrecognisable”.

Fellow hairstylist Justine Eeve from Sydney’s Hair&Harlow told The Beauty Diary the trick was all in what you were using on your hair and catering to your own type.

“The right products make a big difference to making your life easy when it comes to home styling,” she said.

“It starts in the shower but includes heat protection and the right hairdryer. Healthier hair is the easiest to style and hold.”

BEGIN YOUR WITH THE BASICS

For the total novice, the first thing you need to know is to start with wet hair, preferably freshly washed with a product that’s suited to your hair type.

“Use a professional quality shampoo and conditioner as it is so important,” Justine said. “For a good all rounder that works with all hair types, I recommend Evo Ritual Salvation. If your locks are a bit tougher to wrangle, go for the Evo Mane Tamer.”

You can buy the products individually or together in “Buddies” bundles for about $60, like this one from adorebeauty.com.au.

READY, SET, DRY

Once your hair is squeaky clean, it can be tempting to get stuck into styling while it’s still soaking wet.

But, because water makes it hard for the bonds of your hair to “set” into their natural form, Anthony advises blasting it with your hairdryer first to take some of the weight out.

“A common mistake people make at home is simply blotting dry their hair. If you blast it first, drying it by at least 80 per cent, this will cut down your drying time and mostly, your arms wont feel like you’ve just done shoulder presses at the gym,” he said.

Justine advises against rushing though this process, pointing out one reason a lot of us love a salon hair job is because it’s not done fast.

“The key is patience. Your stylist always gets a smooth and polished look is because the take their time with your locks but if you allow time and you will get a longer lasting, finished result,” she said.

Hot tip: If you are going to blast your hair to dry it off before you begin, make sure you apply your heat protection first.

While I’m no hair expert, I’ve been loving Davroe’s Thermaprotect, which costs $23.95 and is available online and in salons. You can spritz this stuff onto dry and wet hair, and I find it doesn’t dry out my ends, which is a battle I have with my porous strands.

CHOOSING YOUR STYLING PRODUCTS

Once your hair is just damp, you’re ready to get cracking with the styling. Oh wait, no you’re not — you need to apply your styling products first.

If you’re looking for volume, most stylists suggest using a mousse or a foam to give you that boost.

My pick is Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, which is an investment at $56. But the lightweight foam doesn’t leave my hair feeling heavy or looking greasy and a little goes a long way, which helps to justify the price.

Don't look at this price tag through your fingers, it's justifiable thanks to it's lovely light formula. You can pick this up at Adorebeauty.com.au. Picture: Supplied

At home I dry my hair with the Panasonic Advanced Moisture Infusing Hair Dryer, which has recently hit the market and I was lucky enough to be sent to try it out as I definitely can’t afford the $349 price tag.

It has some fancy “quick dry” technology that makes your hair dry faster, and through some wizardry I don’t fully understand, it makes your hair softer as it somehow blasts moisture back into your strands as you dry it. Like I said, I can’t explain it, but it works. I also love that it’s foldable, which works in my chaotic bathroom. I’d definitely recommend and buy this if mine needed replacing.

FINE HAIR

Schwarzkopf Professional national ambassador Dee Parker Attwood told The Beauty Diary it was “important to build a good foundation” when styling fine hair.

“You need it to be able to hold the styling in place,” she said.

“Look for weightless formulas that help plum up the strands of hair and give your hair body, staring with a small amount of volume mousse.”

Dee’s pick is Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ Session Label Volumizing Mousse, which she suggests you add to the mid-lengths and ends of the hair to give it some grip. It costs $25.95 and is available in select salons and online.

She also recommends using a “good” hairdryer on finer locks, suggesting the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, which costs $549.

“It has the right features for fine hair types,” she explained. “You can use the cool shot button to set your style in place and stop it from dropping. It also adds shine.”

While don’t have one of these at home due to its extraordinary price, I often use one after my weekly Barry’s Bootcamp class as they have them in the change rooms, and the silky finish is amazing. It makes my hair reflect like a mirror and feels super soft to touch.

THICK HAIR

Blow drying thick hair can be a daunting task, Dee says — but it can be made easier. However great tools will really help with the job.

“My top tips are to towel dry your hair to begin with and then arm yourself with a strong dryer. The Parlux 3800 is best and I’d team it with so Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ Big Blast, a volumising gel that gives a sturdy root lift,” she said.

While the Parlux hairdryer comes in cheaper than a Dyson, it’s still going to set you back $200.

This hairdryer won big in industry awards last year, being named the 'best hairdryer'. Picture: Supplied

This is great for thick hair as it give strong support which can hold volume injected into heavier and thicker hair types. It costs $23.95. Picture: Supplied

Hot tip: Thicker hair has a better ability to lasting longer between washes than finer hair, so you can freshen your blow out between washes with a dry shampoo. Click here to read The Beauty Diary’s favourites.

CURLY HAIR

Curly hair is notoriously the hardest hair to blow dry, but there are some products you can use to help make it smooth sailing.

Dee suggests investing in a good hair-dryer which comes with a diffuser, explaining the Dyson Supersonic “has an excellent diffuser for curly hair”.

Curly hair works better with minimal product (so go low on heat with your hair dryer later on). Justine suggests Moroccanoil Volume Mousse and for smooth ends Olaplex. If you want to try this, shop around. I had a quick look on Google and found it costs $47.95 on Adorebeauty.com.au but you can pick it up at Oz Hair and Beauty for $33.50.

SHORT HAIR

Anthony’s pick is Surf Spray By Bumble And Bumble as it adds texture and character to locks without weighing them down. According to one review on Mecca.com.au, the $41 product gives “sexy, salty, sun-dried, windswept styles – whenever, wherever”.

Sadly salt sprays dry out my hair — but they’re perfect for those effortless beachy waves we drool over on Instagram.

This chic product can be found at Mecca for $41 and is approved by celebrity stylist Anthony Nader. Picture: Supplied

YOUR BRUSH IS KING

No matter your hair type, you’ll need to grab a big bristled brush like the GHD Ceramic Vented Radial Brush. I love this one as the barrel holds the heat long enough for me to actually do what I need to do, usually creating a bit of extra volume.

I'm a fan of this 35mm ceramic barrel brush from GHD which costs $38. Picture: Supplied

“I’m a fan of a medium to large boar bristle brush and with loads of bristles,” Anthony said, adding it was all about “#BristlesForDays”.

“These bristles will do the hard work for you, that’s why you need to invest in the right brushes.”

He also warns not to invest plastic ones, saying they’re a waste of money and bad for the environment.

STEPS TO BLOW DRY YOUR HAIR FROM ANTHONY NADER:

First up, section your hair properly, keeping it simple and clean.

“This is going to fasten up your drying time,” Anthony said.

“Place in your desired part line and separate into four even sections. Take diagonal sections starting around your hairline first as the front half is visual, it needs the love with your brushes here. The back area is more forgiving.”

Once you’re sectioned up, you should grab your round brush and pull it through with your dryer “starting at the back and work your way forward”.

“Wrap the hair around your brush and twist the hair around it to add more volume,” he said. You can even add a twist at the end to give the hair a loose wave.

And if you’re one of those people is better at working on one side than the other, Anthony suggests starting with the side you find the hardest.

“Always start on your weaker side and then progress to your easy side,” he said.

“It will feel uncomfortable at first, but if you start here at the beginning your all fresh and ready to conquer and then by the time you reach your easy breezy side you’ll be sailing along.”

SET YOUR BLOW OUT IN PLACE

When setting your style, your best friend is always a spray that will help your hair look shiny, sleek and frizz-free for the whole day. In my opinion, you can’t beat the classic L’Oreal Elnett Satin Supreme Hold. This product can be picked up at a heap of places, such as drug stores and supermarkets and costs just$10.95.

This baby can be found everywhere, such as Priceline, Woolies and Coles. Picture: Supplied

Anthony also suggests giving your roots a spritz of your dry shampoo and massaging in for a little extra “va, va voom”. Flip your head back, give your strands a brush through and you are good to go.

 

KEEPING YOUR BLONDE HAIR BLONDE THIS SUMMER. Seen – Body + Soul

Your step-by-step solution to buttery, golden strands.

They don’t call blonde hair high-maintenance for no reason. Here two expert colourists breakdown exactly what to do to keep your locks in tip top condition, all season long.

We asked expert colourist Vincent Nobile, Colour Director of Headcase Hair and Anthony Nader, Owner of RAW Salon how to survive swimming, sand and endless sunshine without the side effects: post-pool green locks, brassiness and heat damage.

It’s no secret that lifting your natural hair colour a few shades lighter, or subjecting it to torturous amounts of bleach can do some damage, not only to your roots but to your wallet, too. That’s why it’s important to maintain your hair’s health to get the best out of your blonde – and it’s easier than you think.

Step 1. Use a smarter shampoo

When it comes to your daily shampoo and conditioner routine, it may seem like an easy place to skimp on quality product, but your regular wash actually does more than just clean. Depending on how your hair is looking and feeling it’s important to alternate between a nourishing treatment-esque shampoo and a colour-care one. “Having a recovery shampoo set is key, choose one with keratin so it’s repairing and strengthening,” explains Nobile. “Then when your blonde needs a little lift or sparkle I recommend a soft blonde shampoo, I don’t really like the strong staining ones as they dull down the colour.”

“But if you need to wash away unwanted brassy tones in a flash you can’t go back a mauve or purple-based shampoo,” adds Nader. “Just remember not to over-wash your hair, as it can unnecessarily wash out the salon-toner applied at the end of your colour service.”

Step 2. Turn to treatments

Don’t underestimate the power of a good quality treatment. You can colour and tone your strands as much as you like, but if they’re not in good nick it’s never going to look as good as it could. Buttery, soft blondes always pop when locks are hydrated and healthy.

“Maintain the condition of your hair with a restorative treatment,” says Nobile. “Keep a brush or a comb in the shower to brush your conditioner and treatments through, this will distribute the product through the whole hair and help it absorb better.”

Step 3. Handle the heat

“Avoid overheating hair when blow drying and ironing by using a thermal protection spray,” says Nobile. “If your ends are damaged and broken they’ll never look their blondest. Whenever you overheat your hair (most common when straightening irons are set on max), you can burn and even singe the ends, not only does it take the shine out of hair, it leaves ends looking frizzy and dull.”

Nader agrees adding, “The more heat you subject your poor strands to, the quicker your hard earn dollars of being a natural blonde will appear dehydrated and dull, so simply turn down the temperature or cut back on heat styling together.”

Step 4. Wear protection

Just like wearing sunscreen all over your face and body, your hair needs a guard too. “Make a UV protectant leave-in-conditioner spray part of your sunscreen routine and use it whenever you’re out in the sun or at the beach,” says Nobile.

“My rule is to put it in your hair whenever you top up your sunscreen. It helps maintain your colour and prevents it from going dull and brassy.”

Step 5. Simplify styling

Fuse hair care with styling by swapping out hair sprays for nutrient-rich serums. “Use a lightweight serum on lengths and ends as it showcases sheen and doesn’t make your strands appear dirty or oily either,” explains Nader.

“Go easy on all that over-using of dry shampoo. A little spritz here and there is accommodating for soaking up oily roots and of course adding new found texture, but too much of can lead to coating the hair and leaving it looking chalky.”

 

ARE YOU USING YOUR CONDITIONER THE CORRECT WAY? Sounds simple right? You may want to re think your shower cleanse. Seen NEWS.COM.AU

The Beauty Diary by Rebekah Scanlan: Correct way to use conditioner

Showers. We take them daily, unless you’re totally gross but we’re not here to discuss your hygiene habits. It’s your haircare ones I’m worried about.

Chances are you’re making a major mistake when you step under that stream of warm, inviting water and giving your tresses a wash. So brace yourselves people as what I’m about to say next is going to surprise you — it totally shocked me.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been told to only apply conditioner to the mid-tips of my hair. In fact, a quick Google on “how to condition my hair properly” will bring back hundreds of results telling you the same thing.

“Do not apply conditioner to your scalp,” they all read, rather terrifyingly.

But Anthony Nader from RAW in Surry Hills — a renowned Australian hairstylist with over 30 years experience — told The Beauty Diary it is just one great big fat fib.

“The conditioning process can be complex, which is what has created confusion here, because you need to understand what your hair texture is to prescribe the right conditioner for you,” Anthony said.

This step in haircare is specifically to help behaviour and longevity, he said, adding most people want to “last the distance” between washes.

“The biggest myth is that when you apply the conditioner to your roots that you are automatically weighing them down,” he said, explaining the entire hair strand — root, mid and tip — is made from the same core ingredients, the cortex, how the protein particles that make up the hair is held together, the cuticle, which is the outside coating we all see, and the medulla which is an empty section in the centre of each strand that helps insulate it.

“Even the roots — which is typically considered the ‘healthier’ part of every strand — can benefit from some love,” Anthony said.

I have to admit, over the years I’ve had some awful incidents with conditioners, mainly ones that leave my fine hair super limp and greasy looking.

So when I first heard this myth, I scoffed. There was no way would I be putting conditioner onto my roots.

But the more I dug deeper, the more I realised there was a lot of truth to this. Celebrity hairstylist and Pantene ambassador, Remington Schulz told Whimn.com.au earlier this year, you should “apply the conditioner from the roots to ends”.

“When your hair is cleansed with the hair shaft wide open, it’s the optimum time to condition from your roots, so you’re giving an added boost of hydration,” he told the publication. “When you’re not conditioning properly that’s when we see a lot of scalp concerns.”

Anthony explains the best person to discuss and determine your hair type with to make sure you have the right product for the job is your hairdresser.

Here are some great conditioners for your hair type.

FINE HAIR

If like me, you have fine hair you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say I’m in desperate need of some volumising help from my haircare. Anthony advises anyone with hair strands on the finer side to keep away from the heavy cream conditioners and only use a leave in, weightless conditioner.

KRISTIN ESS WEIGHTLESS SHINE LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER

Available at Priceline

Price: $18.99

Anyone who is a part of The Beauty Diary’s Facebook group knows how obsessed I am with this product. I’ve had so many bad hair days in my time. On days other than freshly washed, locks that have dry ends and oily roots look flat, greasy and lame.

But this leave-in spray has really restored some life back into my tresses and it’s so easy to apply. You simply spritz into damp, towel dried hair. Honestly, the tips of my hair which need moisture are left soft and shiny, while my roots are oil-free and fresh.

It’s also a great detangler so is now a staple in my bathroom.

ORIBE CONDITIONER FOR MAGNIFICENT VOLUME

Available at Adorebeauty.com.au

Price: $62

While applying a thick, heavy conditioner is definitely a no go for fine haired people — ones that are light and build volume get the big tick of approval from experts. To use, I apply a small amount, massage through the lengths of my hair, then I work up to my scalp where I give it a good massage before rinsing.

It’s definitely on the exxy side, but a little goes a long way and it is so effective I think it’s worth every cent.

BLEACHED AND COLOURED HAIR

If your hair is highly coloured and/or bleached, you will need a conditioner packed with moisture and goodness to hydrate. Peroxide-bleached blondes will need to feed your poor strands lots of extra loving, Anthony advises. Like, loads of it.

BRIOGEO DON’T DESPAIR, REPAIR! DEEP CONDITIONER

Available at Sephora

Price: $54

Treat dry, damaged hair to a deep feed with this amazing product for bleach blondes. Don’t be shy with it, your strands will suck up the helpful ingredients, such as the protein it needs for strength and the moisture for restoring its natural state.

GLOW LAB PURPLE CONDITIONER

Available at Priceline and Woolworths

Price: $18 — but it’s regularly on offer in Woolies

If you have your hair highlighted blonde and your mane is appearing a little brassy and warm, a neutralising conditioner like this will make your strands look like a million bucks. This is actually the first ever natural purple conditioner in Australia and has won awards for its effectiveness without chemicals. But there are heaps of heavier ones out there if you really want to tone down those yellowy tones.

NATURAL HAIR

Natural hair colours that aren’t prone to having colour but may need a little help with shine and health should look for products that deliver on “shine”, “brilliance” or “mirror finish” are the babies you should be leaning towards, Anthony said.

PANTENE PRO-V BLENDS MICELLAR GENTLE NOURISHING CONDITIONER

Available at Priceline,

Price: $17.99

I really do love this range, not only because it is super affordable and lasts ages, but because it’s bloody good. When this product was launched earlier in the year and I gave it a whirl, I got a bunch of lovely comments about how fresh my hair looked — and no one could believe it when I said it was Pantene. There was even a lot of snobby remarks about how the fact the brand uses silicone in its products — but this one is silicone free.

Just like the micellar water we use to remove make-up, this gives hair a really deep cleanse without stripping it of its hydration.

CURLY HAIR

If you’ve got it, flaunt it by showing your waves and curls some extra love. Curls can be extra thirsty, especially if you have tight coils like the ones that from Afron hair. So treat them to an intensive conditioner, Anthony said.

ORIBE DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE

Available at Adorebeauty.com.au

Price: $89

While I don’t have curls myself, I do love Oribe and this product has rave reviews from friends and Anthony too. It allows the natural shape of the wave to be its bold, beautiful self by enriching them with coconut and almond oils which really lets curls pop. It’s a boujee product with a matching price tag, but it really works. One Amazon review even described it as “magic”.

“My hair went from dry and crunchy, to smooth and shiny,” it read. “My roommate said it looked like I went to the salon for a blow out when I was done.” If that doesn’t convince you, nothing will.

THICK HAIR

If you’re someone who has naturally thick hair, you’re probably used to hearing people describe you as “lucky” — but your tresses still need some love. Managing a thicker mop can be the biggest challenge, but the right conditioner that treats the whole strand will help.

KERASTASE NUTRITIVE MASQUINTENSE IRISOME — THICK HAIR

Available at Adorebeauty.com.au,

Price: $46

While I have the opposite of thick hair, my mum has been blessed with luscious locks — and she swears by this.

The formula is packed with nutrients that penetrate deep into the hair strand, helping to tame and take control of stubborn tresses.

On my hair, I LOVE the Kerastase Specifique Bain Prevention conditioner. It’s really lightweight and leaves my hair feeling fuller and thicker afterwards. Anything this brand does for hair is considered next level in my eyes.

GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR SHOULD AVOID THIS COLOUR TREND

Everywhere we look, someone is cutting their hair. Kendall Jenner parted with her raven locks, Bella Hadid is now the proud owner of a sleek French-girl bob, even Kate Hudson has taken it to the next level with her fresh buzz-cut—and she looks amazing to say the least. If the above examples are anything to go by, cutting your hair is the best beauty update you can undertake this spring.

Most long-haired girls would agree though, that transitioning from long to short is easier said than done (especially if you’ve had long hair for years—you can feel almost naked without it). All of a sudden, your go-to colour and styling techniques are redundant, and you’re left mystified when it comes to consulting your stylist. So to save the confusion (and the guesswork), we enlisted the help of Anthony Nader of Raw. Working between Australia and New York, Nader has a well-rounded (and global) take on what works for short styles, plus five product recommendations that are sure to change your life for the better.

Byrdie Australia: What is the most requested short hair colours your clients ask for?

Anthony Nader: I find girls with shorter lengths want to push their hair to the lighter end of the spectrum. This is never a problem, but only if their strands are in tip-top condition. The lighter the hair, the more impact it has against your complexion and bone structure, which is fantastic for highlighting the features. There’s nothing more stunning than a beautiful blonde base—your skin will appear luminous and your cheek bones will pop.

B: What is the most requested cut when a client decides to go short? 

AN: Most of my clients want soft and feminine styles. In my books, this works for any person (or season) as not everyone can carry off a hard-edged short crop. Most people request a haircut that hugs the hairline with interior texture. This style is not only fun to create different hair shapes, but it’s also on-tend. Basically, the more texture your hairdresser can cut in, the more your style can move around. It also makes it easy to change it up using different hair products, meaning you’re always one step ahead of the trend.

B: What are the most flattering colour trends for shorter styles?

AN: If you want low maintenance, don’t venture more than two or three shades from your natural base as the upkeep will hurt your purse. Also, you need to think about your makeup if you do go down this track. You might find it’s best to swap out your existing shades and start fresh to match your new colour.

Another great look for shorter hair is to lighten the mid lengths and ends a bit. This is fun as it gives your short hair more dimension and texture, whereas without, your hair length might look solid and round. Even if the texture is there, a solid colour can hide it from everyone, even you.

If you’re afraid of colour, ask your hair colourist to weave in some baby lights on the top area of your head. This will create a very natural halo effect, and it might encourage you to be more adventurous next time.

B: What colour trends should shorter lengths avoid?

AN: Any shade that is too dark needs to be seriously thought about before it’s too late (and painted all through your hair). Dark colour on the hairline and scalp is a dead giveaway that you’ve had a dodgy colour job. By all means, have your fun on the mid-lengths and ends with the colour palette you and your hair colourist have chosen, but always think about how you’re going to manage it between salon visits.

B: What short-hair colour trends will be everywhere this summer? 

AN: I’m really into soft and muted colours—nothing plastic or shiny-looking. French woman are known for having that “I haven’t been to the salon, I don’t know what you’re talking about” vibe. I love that they like their colour and cut to look like it’s worn in—it’s almost secretive in a way. This summer, the colour trend will have more of a French, cool-girl vibe, rather than squeaky clean with bells attached. It will be soft, lived-in, and almost washed out, in a way.

WHY “HAIR HUGGING” IS THIS SEASON’S BIGGEST BEAUTY TREND

Renowned hair stylist Anthony Nader says length is irrelevant.

 

Alexa Chung

 

Earlier this month saw highly sought after hair stylist Anthony Nader celebrate a milestone, with his flagship salon RAW Anthony Nader marking 20 years in business. The go-to hair man for the country’s top magazine and online publications (and yes, Grazia included) and beauty editors, who better to talk us through what is going on in hair in 2017…

Putting Nader on the spot while sitting in the salon chair, we got him tell us just what his number one hair look is for the year: “I’m into ‘hair hugging’ hair that sits around the skin. By that I mean edges that are quite dishevelled, soft – lazy hair that is worn in. A good example of this would be Alexa Chung, of course, she’s my go-to. The ends are clean and healthy but they have a nice dishevelled Parisian lived-in feel about it.

 

Anthony Nader

 

“I’m not into a certain length – I don’t think for this season you should be short or should be long, it’s all about that type of haircut and how you carry yourself.” To avoid a rigid, blunt finish, dry shampoo and texture sprays are your best friend for this look. Best to avoid products that give stiffer locks such as a gel or going OTT with the hair spray.

We take a look at the three products Nader actually uses to get the look.
