How to Blow Dry a Side Fringe

Updated February 21, 2017

Blow dryers not only dry the hair, but they can also style hair. With a blow dryer, you can create a variety of hairstyles, including styles with fringe or fringes. To some hairstylists, fringe and fringes are synonymous. Whatever you call them, these fringe or fringes can be swept to the side or hang straight down. If you want a side fringe, a little more work is needed, although there is no wrong or right way to blow dry a side fringe. Hair stylists use a variety of techniques.

Apply your regular styling aid to the hair around the forehead. Depending on the texture of hair and how well it holds a curl, a styling aid may not be needed.

Part or separate the fringe into sections of 1 to 2 inches.

Blow dry the roots of the fringe or fringe.

Use a small, round brush to pull the fringe to the side. Use your less dominant hand to hold the brush in this position. This holds the side fringe in place.

Hold the blow dryers in your dominant hand and dry the side fringe in the direction of the fringe.

Carefully remove the brush from the side fringe and turn off the blow dryer.

Experiment with completely wet or partially dry fringes to get the look you desire. Trial and error is usually the reality of getting the side fringe you want.
