For a full and bouncy brushing, it is essential to use a thickening volumizing spray that does not weigh down the curls.
Experts said: “There are a huge number of these sprays on the market to choose from and this is the key step that we never skip in our salons.
“Don’t be afraid to use products – you need them to add the fundamental hold your hairstyle needs while creating volume (both essential factors of long-lasting blow-drying).
“In our salons, we use our Mega Volume Brushing In A Bottle Spray every time you blow dry! It’s the key to a voluminous, bouncy and long-lasting hairstyle because it uses natural extracts of white nettle, ginseng and honey locust to lift the roots and create body while adding grip and light hold for lasting style.
“Just shake the spray of your choice well and spray evenly over the lengths.”

It’s time to divide your hair into manageable sections using clips that won’t dent your hair.
The Duck & Dry team says: ‘Using a barrel brush, dry your hair in sections – pointing the hair dryer upwards away from your face.
“For better curl hold, secure curls with pins or in rollers.
“Allow your curls to cool for two to five minutes before blowing them out to ensure the most flexible, long-lasting blow-dry.”
Finally, loosen your curls or get out your rollers and brush your hair with a wide-tooth comb.
The stylists said, “Don’t be afraid to tousle your hair a little – it will inject more bounce and volume while softening the curls for that 90s blow-dry look.
“Spray hairspray lightly over your finished hairstyle from a distance to make your hairstyle more durable!”
Still dumb enough to create the style yourself? You can go to any hair salon and ask for a 90s blow-dry for advice.
