This HerStyler hair dryer is perfect for precise blowdry hairstyling thanks to its 1800 watt AC motor.

If you’re worried about damaging your hair, don’t sweat it!
Proper blowdrying won’t damage your hair. However, to be safe, it is best to refrain from applying heat to your hair if it is already dry.
How to Dry Your Hair With Your HerStyler Hair Dryer
- When styling, you should use brushes or combs made of soft, pliable plastic. You could potentially damage your hair with forceful tugging and brushing. Try the HerStyler Easy Comb – everyone loves it!
- To help your hair maintain its moisture, keep your HerStyler hair dryer six inches away from your hair. For a more even distribution, start with the back and sides of your head, then move towards your crown and forehead.
- Start at a high temperature and start at high speed, and then, as your hair dries, gradually reduce the temperature. This will help you avoid drying your hair out, which can cause damage. For the best results, try to airdry your hair.
- Using a diffuser attachment on your HerStyler hair dryer can help dry your hair uniformly.
- Try flipping your hair upside down while blow drying to add volume and body. This will give your hair more lift and bounce, which reduces the risk of tangles.
However, styling your hair is more than just running a comb and blasting a blowdryer through your strands.
Investing in good styling tools and products may be the best thing you can do for your glorious mane.
Protect Your Mane from Heat Damage
Before using any tools, it’s always essential to protect your tresses from the heat.
Heat damage isn’t kind to hair; a hair styling tool that utilizes heat could potentially cause damage to your hair, drying out the cuticle of your locks.
Although heat can be a great styling agent, it can also cause structural changes to your hair’s proteins.
Obvious signs of heat damage include split ends, hair prone to breakage, and hair that won’t retain its shape after styling.
So, how can you combat this?
Well, by making heat protectant your BFF! Dr. Shilpi Ketarpal, MD, likens heat protectant to SPF for your locks, which means you should be using it whenever you find yourself reaching for your styling tool.
A hair heat protectant does two things: It seals in moisture, reducing water evaporation, and it also protects your mane from environmental moisture, which causes frizz.
HerStyler’s Heat Protective Straightening Cream was formulated specifically for hair that’s often styled with high-heat styling tools, so it shields your blow dry hairstyle from damage and breakage. In addition, it will protect your hair while leaving it shiny and silky.
Now that you’ve got the bases of hairstyling covered, here are a few tips and tricks from HerStyler on getting that perfect blow dry hairstyle:
Rock Some Beachy Waves for that Summer Beach Babe Vibe
Beachy waves are probably the most effortless blow dry hairstyle you can achieve using a hairdryer.
Wet your hair and divide it into two sections. Braid each section loosely and secure it at the bottom.
Blowdry your braids until they are completely dry, then use your finger to comb through your hair, and you’re ready to go.
For more accentuated curls, try the Beach Curler.
This ceramic-coated curler is perfect for everyday use. The curler reaches a maximum temperature of 356°F in 90 seconds and contains two heating chambers in one.
For tighter curls, choose the 19mm barrel, and choose the 32mm barrel for wavy hair.
Get Frizz-Free Silky Straight Hair That’s Sleek And Lustrous
If you’re going for a lower-maintenance blow dry hairstyle, you could try the silky straight hair look.
This type of hairdo suits someone with a round face shape because a long and sleek hairstyle can create the illusion of definition and length in the face.
For this look, it’s always recommended to start with damp, detangled hair. HerStyler’s Pro Detangler Paddle Brush has extended bristles that help reduce hair and scalp stress during blow-drying and styling.
Its soft-grip design on the handle minimizes hand fatigue, and it is designed to create straight, smooth, blow dry hairstyles.
Detangling hair helps to reduce breakage. When your hair is more tangled, it is more difficult to comb through without breaking strands.
Then, use your HerStyler hair dryer and part your locks into sections. Start with drying your hair down to the tips, and then begin blow-drying your hair using a large round brush.
On top of that, you could also use HerStyler’s Blushing Marble Styler to ensure that every strand of hair is in place.
This is the ultimate go-to styling tool for any hairstyle. The ceramic plates in this styler allow for versatility, long-term results, and easy maintenance.
The plates can heat up to 450°F, which will leave you with silky and beautiful hair in a short amount of time.
This hair straightening tool is also has a marble design that’s very aesthetically pleasing, so you can be sure that it will make a statement on your dressing table!
Change Up Your Look with a Short Bob
Having short hair doesn’t mean you can’t look fashionable.
A bob can add so much personality to your look when done right, making you look tres chic.
To achieve this blow dry hairstyle, just use your HerStyler haird dryer and start drying your hair against the grain. Doing this can give your hairdo a more voluminous look, breathing life into your luscious locks.
While experimenting with new looks are fun, it’s very important to nourish and protect your hair as well.

Get Those Luscious, Bouncy Locks For That Va-Va-Voom Factor
Undoubtedly, curly hair maintenance is much more complicated than it looks. Your curls can be uncontrollable and unmanageable, and that can make you feel pretty self-conscious.
Curly hair is a little different compared to other hair types. To put it simply, it takes more water, less washing, and a whole lot more patience when compared with straight hair.
If you’re trying to accentuate your natural curls, here are a few blow drying tips you can follow:
- Start combing your hair from the bottom.
- Condition, condition, condition.
- Use a diffuser when drying your hair.
- Avoid split ends by trimming your hair regularly.
Angela C Styles, a celebrity hairstylist who has styled the Rita Ora’s and Rihanna’s crowning glory, noted that trimming your hair can promote healthier hair growth.
However, your HerStyler hair dryer can also be the perfect tool you need to achieve those curls because the added heat from the hairdryer can help the coil hold better.
Keep your hair damp and use large Velcro rollers to roll the hair in sections around the curlers.
Dry your hair with your HerStyler hair dryer while delicately unraveling the rollers so that the curls stay in place.
The Turbo Style & Dry is a lightweight but powerful hairdryer that is a great budget-friendly option.
It has three temperature settings to enjoy that custom styling experience and comes with two concentrators for you to style your hair with better precision.
HerStyler also has various curlers to achieve the type of curls you’re after, whether they’re small, tight ringlets or big, loose waves.
The Rose Gold Titanium 3P Curler set comes in a gorgeous shade of rose gold and is perfect for all types of curls.
This set includes three different barrels: 9/18mm, 18/25mm, and 25/25mm.
