Expert Tips To Get An Amazing Blowout
Edward Tricomi, Master Stylist and Co-Founder of Warren–Tricomi Salons, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively how to get a salon-worthy blowout at home:
“The true key to getting a salon-worthy blowout at home is time and patience,” Edward says. “Aside from that, the proper tools will make or break your blowout. It’s important to have a really good blow drier with a funnel nozzle and a great round brush. I love to use Mason Pearson brushes because they have mixed bristles of nylon and boar’s hair that really help add shine to the hair. For hair that is past the shoulder, a large round brush is ideal and a medium brush should be used for anything above the shoulder.”
“Next, it is important to blow dry the hair in small sections. I recommend about a quarter inch in depth and an inch and a quarter in width, working your way up the head. Put your hair up in a clip with these sections and blow dry the hair using a half-c motion. As you’re blow drying, make sure the nozzle of the drier and the round brush come together. This motion will help smooth out the hair and keep it looking shiny. Another great trick I love is to freeze the hair in place after it’s done. Once the hair is 99% dry, turn your blow drier around and use the back to suck out all of the heat in the hair. Another way to do this is to turn the setting to cool and blow it that way. By freezing the hair you can help ensure that your blowout will stay in place.”
Edward also gave tips on how to make the style last as long as possible:
“In order to make a blowout last you need to be using the proper products. Always use a blow dry serum that eliminates humidity and seals the hair before drying. At the end of your blowout, if you notice that you have some fly-aways you should use a smoothing cream. Work the cream through the hair, smoothing out any imperfections you see.”
If you just can’t imagine a blowout as a DIY thing, head to a Warren-Tricomi salon.
“You can get a salon blowout two to three times a week depending on what you like. You should be washing your hair every other day, so if you have hair that is very difficult to blow dry at home going to the salon twice a week would be perfect.”
