PERFECT HAIR FOREVER: My first hair dryer.
There's been a lot of talk on Facebook and Instagram about my hair lately; talk I haven't initiated. I swear. To keep it as simple as possible, I intend to grow it out. How long? No idea. I figure eventually it's going to turn grey of start falling out, so I want to have one last hurrah before the day I have to start cleaning out the drain in the bath tub.
I started thinking about it, and all of the men's hair information on the web is geared towards either really sharp, clean cuts or overly styled editorial stuff. Only a very small number of the tutorials I came across were actually reasonable and so I've decided to explain what I took away from them along with what I learned through trial and error.
First things first.... A BLOW DRYER IS THE GREATEST INVENTION EVER. Before I bought a blow dryer, I left good hair days up to fate. Sometimes it looked okay, others were not okay at all. Now, just about everyday is the best hair day ever. Most of the ladies out there probably know how awesome hair dryers can be, but us boys are still in the dark ages of towel-dried hair and cheap Dep hair gel.
In experimenting with my new blow dryer and it's little box of attachments, I found that each one provides a sort of different look. When I use the diffuser, I get really fluffy almost curly locks and when I use the concentrator things look a little more refined. See?
And so,this is the first lesson for the boys:
Don't be afraid of the blowdryer, use it.; it's a tool, after all. The first couple of times, it's gonna be awkward but you'll get the hang of it. I promise.
Take control of your look!
