Time to Shine

Allen Wood for Bumble and bumble gets straight to the point with a long, sleek style.

To celebrate the launch of three new blow-dry products—Repair Blow Dry, Straight Blow Dry and All-Style Blow Dry—Allen Wood for Bumble and bumble creates the high-gloss style seen here, proving that long, luscious hair never goes out of style. ✂ —Nicole Altavilla

Allen Wood distributed a dime-sized amount of All-Style Blow Dry from the roots to the ends. He then hand-dried the hair using his fingers and divided it into four sections at the top, sides and back. Starting with the top section, he used a flat brush, lifting to create smoothness at the roots. From the mid-shafts to ends, he held the brush underneath the hair and directed the blow-dryer down the length of the hair. Lastly, he raked his hands through the strands to blend the sections together for a smooth, sleek finish.
