Regardless of your hair type – cozy, thick and wavy, fine and short – it is indeed an art to master the art of perfect air drying. Sure, blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can throw many arm-breaking curveballs in your way, but mastering the natural aesthetics of showering and walking is an intimidating animal in itself. With so many potential variables like climate, products, time of application and hair texture, things can go wrong quickly and there is definitely no one-size-fits-all recipe.
Air dry your hair with celebrity-level finesse can be a complete bastard, but we're here to change that. Take a course in Expert Air-Drying 101 provided by Cynthia Alvarez, one of the best hairdressers in the industry.
Alvarez works with clients with a variety of lengths and textures (her regulars include Shakira, Maye Musk and Dascha Polanco) and knows a thing or two about styling any kind of string situation – with or without tools. To get all of their important information, we asked them to explain step by step how best to air dry a selection of different hair types. But we didn't stop here. Alvarez also shares all of its essential products, top tips, and perhaps most importantly, the most common mistakes that every hair type should avoid. Spring is just around the corner and it's the perfect time to retire your favorite tool (at least for a few months) and take on its natural texture. Scroll on!
