4 Blow-Drying Techniques For Barbers

PSA: If you’re not using a dryer throughout barbering services, you’re losing time and potential income! That’s why we’re sharing the blow-drying techniques barbers commonly forget AND timesavers for faster appointments. Keep scrollin’ to get pro tips from BaBylissPRO® barbers Frank Soto (@frankdabarber) and Nicole Solomon (@_nicolerenae).


1. Struggling With Beards? Do This!

Straighten or shape beards without having to use a round brush and dryer—here’s how! Nicole uses the BaBylissPRO® ROSEFX Dryer with the Beard Pic attachment on low heat, high volume. “That way I can comb out the beard with a stronger air force coming from the blow-dryer without burning the client,” says Nicole. “Make sure to avoid the highest heat [setting] while being so close to the face.”


Avoid Too Much Tension: Instead of working with a Concentrator nozzle and brush, Frank always uses the Beard Pic directly before a beard wash. The combination of the heat and brushing with the pic attachment makes it easier to detangle without unwanted pulling.

2. Don’t Skip These Easy Steps 

Missing out on opportunities to save time? Here’s an easy solution: Start taking advantage of different dryer attachments throughout a service to pick up the pace.


  • Avoid itchiness. Remove excess hairs that stick to the neckline and around the cape to prevent discomfort. Nicole also uses a dryer throughout a service to remove hair from her standing area to prevent slipping and falling.
  • Try this clean mirror cheat. When Frank cleans his station, he blows the hot air from his blow-dryer onto the mirror and wipes with a dry towel for a super clean finish.


Pro Tip: Cut down drying time 💥 Nicole uses the lock-in Turbo Shot on her FX Dryer to boost wind speed up to 100mph!

3. Expand Styling Offerings

“[Barbers] miss out on a clientele that want more of a defined style up top and are willing to pay more for it, or even make the process of drying hair that much faster!” says Nicole.

4. Try This Aftershave Trick 

There’s nothing worse than going to spray alcohol or aftershave—and your client feels a burning sensation! One of Frank’s favorite cheats: Use the cold shot button on the BaBylissPRO® GOLDFX Dryer to direct the aftershave WHERE you want it. This creates a cool sensation instead of that unwanted fiery feeling.
