You know that magical feeling when you leave the salon after a fresh blowout and kind of feel like Beyoncé as your smooth hair blows in the wind? Yeah, us too. With the winter months approaching quickly, knowing how to get the perfect blowout could come in handy. A good blow dry has the power to change your entire day, and make your beauty game feel on point. If the round brush and blow dryer are a mystery to you, don’t fret. We’ve collected five tips from our expert stylists to get the perfect blowout, so you can start embracing your inner Beyoncé.
1. Use the Right Hair Products
If you want bouncy, voluminous hair then skip shampoos and conditioners with sulfates and other harmful ingredients that weigh your hair down. Use hair care products with natural ingredients and oils that will leave your hair fragrantly refreshed, hydrated, frizz-free and full of life.
2. Leave the Bathroom
Skip blow drying your hair in the bathroom. Chances are, you just got out of the shower and your bathroom is more humid than Florida in the summertime. Move the whole shebang to another room so your blowout doesn’t frizz.
3. Hold on a Sec
Wait a few minutes before the blowout. If you blow dry your hair while it’s soaking wet, you’ll just end up damaging your hair. Not to mention, it’ll take forever trying to blow dry soaking wet hair, you’ll probably just give up halfway through.
4. Make Sure Your Hair is Actually Dry
Once you’ve finished the blowout, check around for any damp or cool spots. If you want your blowout to last and look frizz-free your hair needs to be 100% dry. Otherwise, it’ll frizz up and your blowout will soon deflate like a sad balloon.
5. Finish It Off with Cool Air
Freeze finish the look and take advantage of the “cool” button on your blow dryer. By doing this, you’re setting your style. The cool button is what gives your hair that salon-quality finish, and it’s what will help your blowout last for days.
We know that blowouts can be a little intimidating at first, but after a couple of tries, you’ll be a champ. But if you just can’t seem to get that salon-quality look, we can help.
