How to Fake a Professional Blowout.
There is no better pick-me-up then a fresh blowout, but recreating one at home can be daunting.
Maybe you’ve attempted to round brush your hair only to get tangled up in a sweaty mess. Technically a blowout is the art of drying hair to achieve a smooth, sleek style with no curling or flat iron involved, but today we are bending the rules!
With a few of my tricks, and the right products, you can get that bouncy salon blowout at home.
Preparation is key.
Prep hair with a heat protectant cream and blow out cream.
Blow dry hair until about 80% dry.
Use clips or hair ties to section your hair. This will speed up the process and ensure you’re drying your hair from root to end.
Focus around your face first.
Dry your fringe section first, then round brush the mohawk section away from face letting the hair fall forward.
Always angle the dryer down.
Round brush the rest of the of the hair, once the hair is completely dry hit the cool button on your dryer. This will seal the hair cuticle lock in the style.
Finish with a large curling iron.
Curl mohawk section away from the face with a 1.5 or 2 inch barrel curling iron on a low heat setting, clip and let cool. Curl side sections under and let cool.
The comb out is the finishing touch.
Once your hair has completely cooled, comb out the style with a soft brush and finish with styling oil.
