4 Blowout Tips For a Frizz-Free Finish
What’s the best way to show off that flawless color or cut you just created behind the chair? A smooth, voluminous blow-dry. Not only will a blowout show off your work, it is also the perfect time to educate clients on at-home care and talk up the salon’s retail. Ready to upgrade your drying time? We snagged these blowout tips from Instagram, so scroll down and take notes on how to achieve a flawless finish.
Tip #1: Prep With More Than A Heat Protectant
To keep hair protected from heat AND create a smooth finish, BTC Team Member Donovan Mills (@donovanmillshair) preps his clients with the new No. 7 Bonding Oil from Olaplex. Not only is the No. 7 a heat protectant, it strengthens bonds, adds shine and softens strands. Check out Donovan using No. 7 below!
Tip #2: When It Comes To Creating Volume, It’s All About The Angles
For added volume and lift, Jen Maxcy aka @hairandbeautybyjen on Insta, brings a round brush up from underneath each section and works it into the base before hitting it with heat. Then, keep the tip of the blowdryer close to the brush at an angle while turning the blowdryer through the section. See how she does it below!
Tip #3: For A Curly-Haired Client, Less Is More
When blowing out natural curls, product buildup can get in the way of a smooth finish. Stylist Mathew Evan Ocasio (@matevanhair) only applies two products when drying a client: Olaplaex No. 6 Bond Smoother to damp hair and finishes with No. 7 Bonding Oil for a silky finish. Check out his client’s transformation below!
Tip #4: Create A Full Foundation For Styling
To give styles natural bounce and volume, BTC Team Member Liz Haven (@lizhaven) uses a French blowout technique —it is also a great foundation for upstyles or curls.
