Don’t you love the way your hair looks after you get it done at the salon? Here’s the steps on how to recreate the perfect blowout at home. All it takes it little extra time and a few styling tools and you’ll look perfect for that upcoming date, party or just because you want to look gorgeous!
1 PREP HAIR
Start with freshly washed hair that’s 90 percent dry, especially at the roots. You can air dry or blow-dry. Apply defrizzer to wet hair.
2 SECTION HAIR
Apply root lifter to the roots of hair and divide front hair from the back. Then separate the front section into three equal sections. Twist each piece tightly to the scalp and secure with a hair clip. Divide the back into four sections, twist each piece and clip. No need to twist off your bangs or hair in the front because you’ll start with that piece first.
3 BLOW-DRY HAIR WITH A ROUND BRUSH
Place a round brush under a section of hair and start close to the scalp, pulling the brush to the ends as the hairdryer follows the brush. Continue until the section is completely dry before moving to the next section.
4 SET HAIR ROLLERS
After the hair is dry, wrap hair around Velcro roller, starting at the tip and rolling to the root. Secure with a hair clip.
5 SPRAY HAIR
When rollers are in place, mist all over lightly with hairspray and let it dry.
6 REMOVE ROLLERS
Once hair is dry, carefully remove rollers. Don’t tug or you’ll end up with knots that hurt.
7 FINGER COMB
Toss your head to the side and softly blow-dry hair on the cool setting. Then apply texturizer or finishing balm to the tips of your fingers while you softly comb hair. Flip sides and you’re done.
