What is the difference between a blow dry and a power dry?

When considering high-end hair styling options, it’s important to understand your options, and we understand that it’s important to know the difference between both the blow dry and the power dry.

M Salon Blow Dry vs Power Dry

Blow Dry

Ultimately, the biggest difference between the two hair services is that a blow dry is when the hair is actually styled.

With the use of heat protectant products, various hair tools, a round brush and a blow dryer, the hair is fully dried and styled after any hair service. This hair service can also be administered on its own too.

A blow dry service typically includes a wash, the blow dry and the style (whichever the customer prefers). The style may be done using a flat iron or a curling wand or iron.

This thorough blow dry focuses on each section of the hair to ensure it looks shiny and smooth.

Power Dry

A power dry is done on hair that is left a little bit damp, at times. This service is typically done after a color service to ensure that color has been applied clearly and to confirm it is the desired tint by the client.

Oftentimes, this will be done before any other service to confirm the client’s needs are met. A full blow dry service can occur after if the customer chooses.
