    What's the correct way to ask for a wash and blow-dry at the hairdressers in Spain? 'lavar y secar el pelo' o 'lavar y peinar' / lavado y peinado?
    Thanks you

    Hello.

    If you say lavar y peinar/marcar, you'll have your hair set/styled. If you just want a blow-dry, I'd say e.g. lavar y secar con secador/y pasar el secador. But if you tell them that you want solo lavar/lavar solo, they'll understand that it doesn't include peinar and usually blow-dry your hair (secarlo con secador).

    Saludos.
