We’ll start by sayingThe Retro Dryer will definitely look the chicest at your styling station (and its compact, so it travels well!), but there are so many incredible dryers to dive into.
Oh and before we get into that, this pumpkin spice (or cowgirl red) is SO in right now. And when you’re styling hair with color, you want to be as protective as possible. Luckily, FHI Heat designs with hair health in mind, every time. Now, let’s get into it.
Style 1: Face-Framing Layers (Like, a lot of them)
Get ready to bring back those iconic face-framing layers, reminiscent of Rachel from Friends, as they make a triumphant return.
