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.

Once you know how to do a blowout at home, you’ll find there is no need to go to a blow dry salon to get the look you want. It’s simply a matter of having the right tools and products at home. Living Proof offers the products you need to get that gorgeous blowout.

  1. I’ve never had a blowout but sounds like an amazing experience. I agree the price is a bit steep though so doing it at home makes sense.

  2. I blow dry my hair rarely, because its already thin and dries pretty quickly. However, when I do blow dry my hair, I always have an issue with my bangs. They just never look how I want them to. I really appreciate the tip of drying the bangs first. I usually wait to the end to dry them, and I also use a brush and I guess that causes my roots to lift. Guess this explains why my bangs always look funny when I’m done blow drying. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Yeah, I’ve never had a blow out either. I try to avoid paying someone to do my hair because I’m a cheapskate. Or rather, I’m frugal. 😉 I love the bubble bangs tip!

  4. Your hair always looks so pretty in photos that you post. I’ll have to try a blow out on my hair too, especially for upcoming parties.
