Have you ever wondered why it seems so effortless for your hairstylist to give you a gorgeous and sleek blowout, yet when you try it at home you are left with a shapeless pile of frizz? Is it the years of beauty school? Here at Fabio Scalia Salon we believe you can learn how to blow out your own hair like a pro! Our stylist, Mary Kazak, is going to show everyone how to achieve a “fresh-out-of-the-salon” look from the comfort of your own home. Before watching this tutorial video, Mary has some useful tips to keep in mind:
1) Make sure you use a strong blow dryer that gets really hot. We mentioned this before in “Five Tips to Make Your Blow-out Last Longer”. Both the T3 and the Parlux line of dryers work really well and are fast drying (which prevents hair damage). Always use a nozzle attached to your dryer.
2) Before drying your hair use a product to lock in moisture and protect your hair from the heat. You can try Oribe Supershine Cream, which prevents frizziness and leaves hair shiny and soft. Add a dime sized amount to the ends of your hair while it is damp.
3) If you are looking for volume, try Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray. This spray is heat activated and should be applied to the roots of the hair for fullness and bounce that lasts throughout the day.
4) When selecting a round brush, make sure you choose the right size for the look you are trying to achieve. A small brush is great if you want to add some waves to your blow out while a larger brush should be used if you want a really straight look. NEVER use a metal brush because when it gets hot it will burn your hair! Wooden brushes with boar bristles work best.
Enjoy the video and remember that practice makes perfect!
