Want a Jennifer Aniston style-salon quality blow out at home? Impossible? Not if you follow these seven steps!
- Prep your hair with product – either anti-frizz, straightening or volumizing – depending on your hair type, and spray on a little heat protector as well. Comb it all through with a wide-tooth comb to eliminate any tangles and to make your hair smoother.
- Finger dry your hair on medium heat so it is damp and you’re not starting your blow out with soaking wet hair. This speeds up the overall blow out process.
- Section your hair into six even sections, twisting the hair out of the way with hair clips, so that you only have to work with small sections at a time. This prevents hair from getting tangled and allows for an orderly drying process. It also ensures that your hair will stay damp until you blow dry it. However, if you find sections of your hair begins to dry before you blow it out, it’s a good idea to mist it lightly with a water bottle.
- Use a large round brush to begin straightening your hair. Start at your nape, making sure to pull the hair as taught as possible. Tilt the dryer nozzle downward to ensure a smooth finish.
- Continue drying each section, working up the head. Make sure each area is completely dry. The trick to a great blow out is to get all the moisture out of your hair.
- Once your hair is completely dry and straight, go over the entire head with the cool shot on your dryer to seal the cuticle, and then finish with a light spray of flexible hold hair spray.
- After all that hard work, you’re going to extend your blow out, so keep it fresh with a great dry shampoo.
