Brush Tips for Long Lasting Blowouts

1. Smooth your blowouts using the right tools:

Finishing your wash with cold water to seal the hair cuticle.
Applying a moisturizing heat protectant.
Using the right brush.


2. Don’t enjoy blow-drying bangs? Try this face-contouring technique!
Even though it can be a little intimidating to work with, the hairline is an essential part of any blowout—it’s what clients see the most!

Start your blowout in the front of the head.
Dry in every direction, rolling your brush back and forth to get a smoother result.
Then, run the brush over the section to add volume and set the hair.


3. Set your round brush for optimal hold.
After drying a section, hit your cool shot and allow the brush to sit in the hair for five to ten seconds. The result: More voluminous, longer-lasting hold!

Pro tip: For the back sections, dry in both directions for more volume at the root and smoother midlengths and ends. If you have a hard time getting the brush to set, just hold it.


4. Add volume to fine hair with this combination of blow-drying hacks.

Use your blowout to add fullness to fine-haired clients. Not only does knowing how to service finer hair types broaden your service menu, but it accentuates the cut or color service you just did. Follow these steps to make sure your blowout service doesn’t leave fine hair looking flat: Pull the brush straight up from the head, rolling back and forth. Hold your brush right up against the root and hit your cold shot. This shocks the cuticle, creating instant volume.
