Hey there! We have opened our salon (yay) and you have booked your appointment to get your roots done, but until then... here’s a blog post all about BLOWOUTS. How to maintain your locks, and attempt your blowout at home while waiting for your appointment.

 

1st step: As soon as I get out of the shower I ring out my hair and brush through a few of my favourite products. Right now I use Olaplex #6 (works great to detangle) and a dime size of Kevin Murphy Young Again Oil on my ends.

2nd step: I always let my hair dry to about 70-80% with the product already combed through to maintain frizz. I put on my makeup, get dressed, eat breakfast and by then it is dry enough to start!

3rd step: Before blow drying, I spray my hair with a heat protectant! I use Kevin Murphy Heated Defense. I section out my hair and clip the rest on top. Don’t hold the blow dryer so that it’s touching the brush, hold it just an inch or two away from your hair. 

HOT TIP: I always try to hold my brush so that the handle is pointing forward. For me, it makes things feel less awkward!
4th step: I take the next section of hair and do the same thing. If you can’t do the back, it’s easier to pull your hair all to the front! For the top back section I will pull my section of hair straight up with my brush and blow dry to increase the volume.

 

5th step: For my bang area I like to blow dry my hair away from my face. Just so that it doesn’t curl completely under and I get a little volume at the root. Finish it off with a light hairspray, my favourite is Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair.

 

 

Practice makes perfect, I promise! It’s a little tricky to figure out how to hold a brush and the blow dryer and make sure your hair isn’t flying everywhere... but find what is comfortable for you and go with that! And if not, we’ll be here to save you. ️ 


See you very soon, Shanna <3
