Blowouts are one of the most common services in any hair salon. Generally, a blowout involves a salon wash and styling as the hair dries. This helps create curls, waves, or straighten hair without the use of other tools.

How Long Does a Blowout Last?

Generally, a blowout can last multiple days, usually about 3 to 7. However, it can vary based on a few factors. Firstly, your hair type, texture, and thickness all play a part. If you are more active and sweat, that can also shorten the life of your blowout. Also, washing your hair in the shower will pretty much take the blowout away. Lastly, the humidity of your environment can also be an important factor. Here in New York, this can be especially important to consider. During the colder, drier months, it can last longer. However, in the summer, the humidity can reduce the lifespan of the styling.

Protecting Your Blowout

There are a few ways to extend the lifespan of your blowout. Start by showering in a shower cap to protect the hair and keep it dry. Try not to play with or tough your hair too much, as the skin of your hands will introduce additional oils to your locks. To keep hair clean, use a dry shampoo, which will absorb some of the excess oils in your hair. When going to bed, use a satin or silk pillowcase, or wrap your hair in a headwrap. Alternatively, sleeping in a loose bun can help.

How Long is a Blowout Appointment Usually?

While this may vary based on your hair type and length, a blowout typically takes about an hour in the Salon. This includes the time it takes to wash and shampoo the hair before blowing it out.
