Have you ever had a blowout before? I mean a real, go to the salon, pay a bunch of money and have a stylist do it kind of blowout? I did, once, on a business trip to Chicago. It’s a fun experience and one that I would recommend, once, because honestly, you can do the same thing at home for a lot less!

How To Do A Blowout At Home
So, what is a blowout? Typically, a blowout is done at a blow dry salon. They don’t cut or color your hair. They blow dry it and that is all they do. Typically, they run between $30 and $50 depending on the salon. Thankfully, once you know how to do a blowout at home, you can get the same results for a lot less.
- To get a really good blowout, you need to start with the right equipment and the right products. Use a lightweight, boar bristle brush with a cork or foam handle. This will give you the most control over your hair as you style it.
- Use a blow dryer that is tourmaline (for shine and faster dry time), ionic (to fight static) and ceramic (to heat hair evenly).
- When drying your hair, keep your hair taught around the brush to prevent kinks and cowlicks.
- Always keep the nozzle of the blow dryer parallel with the section of hair you’re working on for smooth strands and a shiny finish.
- Start at the top (crown) when blowing out your hair. This helps provide long lasting shape and body.
- When a section of hair is fully dry and still warm, wrap it around a velcro roller, mist with Blowout and let sit for 10 minutes. Repeat for 3-4 sections in the crown area. Style the rest of your hair and then remove the rollers.
- Avoid bubble bangs. Dry your bangs first and then dry them down against for your forehead. Don’t lift the roots up.
