A gorgeous blow-out, at home!
A great salon blow-out can add a little something extra to your hair, which seems impossible to replicate at home. But impossible it is not! even though blow dries advertise themselves to be casual and easy-to-achieve, they do require a few steps to give you that effortless look. But, with the right products (that you should always keep close by!) and just a few steps, you’ll be blow-drying like a pro in no time!
1. First, you will need to towel dry your hair and apply a blow-dry/volume enhancing cream. Some of the most popular ones include Pureology’s Root Lift and Redken’s Velvet Gelatine 07.
2. Blow dry the hair 75-80% dry before sectioning the hair and using a round brush. With the round brush, blow-dry away from the roots to create volume. Start with the top and front of the hair-you don’t want to get to tired by the time you get to the most important parts!
3. Make sure you get the hair COMPLETELY dry! Once the hair is dry, part your hair where you normally where it. Apply a very small amount of Redken’s All Soft Argan Oil-6 to the ends of the hair to give it that smooth finish.
4. Finally, spray hairspray on a paddle hairbrush and gently comb away from the parting in the direction of the hair. This will settle any visible flyway strands. For this effortless, carefree look, don’t spray hairspray directly onto the hair.
And there you have it! A professional blow-dry at home! With just a little practice and patience, you too can have an effortless look that can last for days!
