|Alison Dace knows good hair!|
I’m a little obsessed with my hair at the moment. Anything that makes it looks thicker, more glossy, and just generally more lush is always going to get my attention.
From the menu you could choose from the “TJUZ IT” (pronounced jhujh it”) for texture and volume, the “POLISH IT” for smooth sleekness, the “WRAP IT” for a super glossy finish, or even the “BOUNCE IT”, my personal fave, for a head full of soft curls and amazing volume.

|The “Tjuz It” and what you need to get the look|
I hope you can hear what Luke is saying over the hairdryer noise, it’s really worth trying to listen out for his tips!
|Perfect curls take time, and patience. Use a large-barrelled wand for rolling curls and waves – lift away from the roots for added volume|
If there were only two things I could tell you from what I learned (i.e. my two greatest hair-drying sins!) it would be this:
- Always allow yourself enough time to blowdry your hair. If you don’t, you’ll inevitably be disappointed with the result. Makes sense, don’t you think? If I go to the salon for a blow-dry, I allow an average of around 45 minutes for the appointment. What on earth makes me think I can do it in less time, when I’m
hopeless at itnot even a professional!
- Always use product to get perfection and make sure it’s the RIGHT product for your hairtype. For example, not only will mousse help with volume and lift, it will also add a little friction between the brush and the hair to really help get the necessary traction. Me? I’ve always been too lazy to get busy with any product, although I’ve got loads of it lying around the place…. but the new me will make more effort!
New to SAKS is their Steampod Straightener with Steam. It’s a salon-only service that you’d book instead of a blow-dry that infuses the hair with keratin as it straightens and smooths the hair for the sleekest blow-dry you’ve ever seen!
I can’t wait to try that one!
Are you any good with blow-drying your own hair or as completely inept as me?
