Here Are 9 Tips in 2019 to help you with that BLOWOUT!
Are you maximizing your blowout services or blowing them off? I am sharing some of the secrets to sectioning for maximum impact, building lift at the root, reducing your blow-dry time AND so much more.
1. Overdirection Is Key
Overdirect each section to a 90-degree angle for maximum, then blow-dry from roots to ends with a large round brush. Always wrap the ends in before allowing to cool and unwinding the section.
2. How To Determine Each Section Size
The size of your round brush should determine each section for the blowout—don’t use a brush that’s bigger than the section. A recommendation is using a brush that has a combination of nylon and natural boar bristles. The nylon will create grip and the natural bristles will add shine to the blowout.
3. Stop Ignoring Your Cool Shot Button
If you’re styling a client at the end of their color appointment, it’s important to maintain the integrity of their hair—especially before using hot tools! Drying the hair with the cool air setting to keep styles looking (and feeling!) strong and healthy.
4. Cut Down Your Blow-Dry Time
Dry 50%without the nozzle to prep and remove at least 50 percent of the moisture. Then switch to the styling concentrator, which is narrower and more precise to allow for more control, when you begin round-brushing. This truly does speed up the blow-dry time.
5. Hair Cheat: Instant Lift At The Root
With this must-know secret for building that extreme, long-lasting lift at the root!
Apply a root lifting product like Double Boost from Goldwell t to damp hair and blow-dry upside down. When your client flips their head back over—BOOM. You will achieve strong lift that lasts all night long, even on fine-haired clients.
6. Viral Blowout Technique: French Blow-Dry Set
It’s not a regular roller set, it’s a cool roller (round brush) set!
7. Want Smooth Texture?:
Skip the round brush. First, run the brush through the section to detangle. Then, hover the nozzle half an inch above the section and direct the airflow on the dryer downward, brushing and passing through each section.
8. Extend The Life Of Your Blowout:
Don’t let your blowouts fall flat. Go home with Dry Shampoo and show them where to apply to give blowout longevity. Here’s how:
Start where the hair collects the most excess oil and sweat—think the hairline, nape and at the crown and work in 1- and 2-inch sections.
Isolate each section, apply to the roots, process and massage thoroughly before moving on to the next section for even application.
Sit for 30 seconds, then massage so the product has time to fully absorb oils and odors from the scalp for a high-impact application.
9. What Your Clients Don’t Know Is Ruining Their Blowouts:
Education = improving retention. Your client probably doesn’t know what the hair cuticle is and why keeping it smooth is so crucial to limiting frizz, so talk it through. It should always be blowing in the same direction as the cuticle.
