Smoothing Treatment 101: Advanced Techniques

Take your Brazilian Blowout game to the next level!

close formula

Are you performing smoothing treatments yet? They’re money-makers for sure, and the technology has come a long way. Once you’ve mastered the traditional Brazilian Blowout, check out how to up your game with a couple advanced techniques.


First, learn exactly how to perform the Brazilian Blowout 3 Step Professional Smoothing System, then get certified online! After that, you’re ready for advanced techniques.


Apply the Brazilian Blowout solution 2 to 3 inches from the scalp to maintain volume.


Maintain Volume

For a traditional Brazilian Blowout treatment, you apply the solution about ¼ to ½ inch off the scalp. For clients who want smoothness with volume at the root, here’s what you do:

  • For most hair types, apply the solution 2 to 3 inches away from the scalp instead of ¼ to ½ inch away from the scalp.
  • If the client’s hair is very kinky or curly, keep the solution as close to the root as possible, but overdirect the flat iron during the flat iron step to create volume.


Overdirect during the flat iron step for max volume.


Add Hair Extensions

Hair extensions + Brazilian Blowout = big money. But there are some special considerations you must take. For example:

  • On a client with existing extensions, perform the treatment the same way as a client without extensions, but apply the solution ¼ to ½ inch away from the bond to avoid slippage. Same for flat iron.
  • On a client who desires extensions after the treatment, let her know she must wait at least one week or three washes before you can install the extensions.


Keep the solution away from the extension bond to avoid slippage.


Prescribe Proper Maintenance

The three-step system was recently upgraded to deliver noticeably better results in as little as 80 minutes, and includes at-home maintenance that can give clients week-one results for up to 12 weeks. However, that’s only if she cares for her hair properly. Some tips:

  • Bundle the cost of the Brazilian Blowout Açai Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner into the price of the treatment as a gift with purchase.
  • Stress the importance of the client-sized Brazilian Blowout Ionic Bonding Spray as part of the maintenance regimen to help bond the cuticle and keep her hair looking salon-fresh.


Build in the cost of at-home maintenance products to your service price.
