Can we all agree that the best part about a visit to the salon is walking out with that bouncy, silky, blowout hair? And while we’d love to sip Prosecco in our hairdresser’s chair once a week, learning how to blowout hair at home will ultimately save you a ton of money. However, achieving the perfect blowout isn’t as easy as just turning on a blow dryer.
We spoke to Jon Reyman, celebrity hair stylist and owner of New York based Spoke & Weal Salon, who points out that hair is complex, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to how to blowout hair. But whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, or coiled; fine, medium, or course, there a few blowout hair tips that Jon says everyone should follow.
Contrary to popular belief, you should never rough dry hair. Instead, Jon advises smoothing and straightening wet hair immediately. And while cranking up the heat might save time, he recommends slowing down. Taking fewer passes through and a lower heat setting will cause less damage and help you get a longer lasting style. But his most important tip? Tools + techniques = results.
Investing in quality tools and products will keep your hair healthy and make your style last. Not sure where to start? We’ve rounded up the best tools and products on the market to help you get salon quality, blowout hair at home. While we’re on the subject, here’s the one tool that will make us never pay for a blowout again.
