It’s all in the wrist!
The one thing we know for sure? Any bathroom is only ever complete with a blowdryer. It’s an essential styling tool that deserves a spot in anyone’s bathroom counter. It’s an overachiever that gives us awesome style, volume and hold in minutes. As we’ve also mentioned in prior drying tutorials, the trick in learning how to blow dry men’s hair mostly lies in how you hold the nozzle. Men, especially balding men or those with hair starting to thin out, can always do with a bit of lift up top as it can help give a denser, fuller look. Just see the difference some volume makes and what it can do for a hot little pompadour or a quiff (and conversely, what a flattened hairstyle can do for your entire look—and mood—as well). But no guy wants more pouf than he bargained for either, and therein lies the challenge.
