David’s Beautiful People Blow Dry Boot Camps helps you learn to style hair like a professional.

David’s Beautiful People Salon now offers a one-of-a-kind educational course every month where their staff demonstrates a free hands-on seminar on how to style hair like a professional hairstylist. It takes more than just a flat iron and hairspray to achieve the perfect hairstyle. It takes experience, patience and the drive to learn how to create drop dead gorgeous hairstyles. If you cannot easily replicate salon hair design artistry at home, you should sign up for Blow Dry Boot Camp. The next upcoming classes will take place on the following Tuesdays: March 11th, April 8th and May 6th. Boot Camp attendees will be able to ask for personal haircare advice about cowlicks, creative haircolor options, texture, safe hair smoothing systems, thinning hair, professional home haircare products, blow dryers, ceramic irons, dry and sensitive scalps or any challenge they may have.

Ginny, a recent Blow Dry Boot Camp participant, stated, “David personally greeted me. He asked me basic hair questions such as what kind of shampoo and conditioner I used. He and Pete McCabe, their newest haircare person, began to guide me through the blow dry hair design process. I learned that the brush I have been using is damaging my hair. I learned the proper way to blow dry when styling it so as not to open up the hair cuticle for any potential damage. It is a challenge when one has short arms, not to mention being 67 years of age. I will definitely give it my time and effort. I got one of David's hairbrushes and used my David Rewards Program to purchase an aerosol of dry shampoo for those third days when the hair gets too oily. I really learned how to correct many of my bad hair habits. I had an hour and a quarter of their time and care. It was well worth it. I am glad I came.”

Boot Camp Blow Dryer Tips and Tricks: Use a medium blow dryer setting as opposed to high heat as the air stream should feel comfortable on the back of your hand. Keep the hair dryer at least 8 inches away from your hair. If your hair is fine, you should set the air stream to low. With a high setting and fine hair, you may end up with uncontrollable tangles. Blow dry every individual hair strand from the roots to the ends. Keep the blow dryer moving constantly to avoid applying too much heat targeted to a single area. Divide the hair into several portions and secure the strands with large hair clips or grips. Work your way up, blow drying your hair from the neckline to the crown of your head. The use of a heat protectant will aid in the prevention of blow dry damage. To save effort and cut down on exposure to a blow dryer; try to dry hair for 15 minutes by wrapping it in a towel. For an even stream of air, use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer. Give your hair a blast of cool air at the end of your blow dry session to help preserve the elasticity of hair.
