We all know that feeling after leaving the salon with a great blowout – you feel as if you can take on the world. We will do anything to make that blowout last as long as possible; knowing once we wash our hair, we won’t be able to recreate that look on our own.
Think of what we could accomplish as women if we knew how to give ourselves an amazing blowout on a regular basis!?
Step 1 – Products Make a Difference: Shampoo & Conditioner
It all starts in the shower
Shampoo & conditioner recommendations: Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Color, Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore, Natulique Pure Silver
Step 2 – Selecting the Right Hair Styling Products
The next step is making sure you use the right styling products to help you achieve your desired style. We always recommend using a thermal protectant before putting any heat on your hair because, in the end, healthy hair will always be pretty hair. If you’re wanting volume, it’s important to add a styling product to your hair wet, such as a mousse or tonic. This will give you the maximum amount of volume rather than waiting until your hair is dry to start adding volumizing products. For curly hair, you will want to be sure you’re using something smoothing before you blow dry or diffuse your hair. Each hair type is so different so it’s important we’re using the right styling products to meet our individual needs.
Styling product recommendations: Natulique Ultra Shine Finishing Spray, Natulique Heat & Sun Protection, Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream
Step 3 – Perfecting the Technique
The final step is technique… which doesn’t always have to mean spending a lot of time styling your hair. I always recommend rough drying your hair to 50-80% after you put your styling products in. Then you can use your round or flat brush to finish off your style. By getting your hair mostly dry before starting to style, you will save so much time and will prevent your arms from getting so tired while blow drying!
As women we play so many roles (mom, wife, boss, etc) and we often spend so much time taking care of the people around us that we have very little time to spend on ourselves. Our goal is to simplify things for you as you’re styling your hair, so you can have the confidence of a great blowout as you take on your daily superwoman duties!
