What if you could have that amazing feeling of walking out of the salon with shimmering locks full of body and bounce and free of frizz every day? Well, you can! Many women have started to treat blowouts like manicures and make way too frequent trips to the beauty parlor. However, you can save your money and your time and have a lasting great hair day. There are ultimately two factors that should tailor your at-home blowout, the style you want and your hair’s natural texture. Make sure you section your hair in 3 to 6 parts (depending on how much hair you have) and use a round brush to completely dry every section. Make sure you also add resistance to get that ultra-sleek look at your roots and feel free to spin the brush to get bouncy ends. Finish with hairspray, concentrating on the roots, and a light shine spray that won’t weigh your hair down.

A Clean Slate

Make sure when you wash your hair before a blowout that you rinse out the conditioner completely. Pay attention to the crown of your head because this is usually the area we miss. If you leave in conditioner, your blowout may fall flat quickly. We want that baby to last!

Dry Shampoo

Use dry shampoo at your roots right before you pick up the blow dryer to prevent greasiness.


Do not use an elastic band to pull sections of hair back during your blowout. Use a jaw clip to section hair during your blowout to avoid crimping your hair.

Bun in the Oven

After your blow dry, sleep in a bun positioned at the top of your head, secured with u-shaped hair pins. The next morning, you will be free of bed-head and have another great blowout hair day!

Don’t Sweat It Out

When exercising, wear a sweatband along your hairline. Post-workout replace it with a new one and let hair dry in that position. This will prevent frizz and grease at your hairline and keep your blowout bouncing. Then, use a flat iron to touch up any parts that may have become kinked.
