Blowouts are a popular form of hairstyling that is a mainstay in most salons. Blowouts help manage and care for your hair while styling it in a way that can last a few days. With proper care, a blowout can last 3-5 days, or longer if your hair is trained with regular blowouts.

How Do Blowouts Work?

A blowout consists of a few steps. First, the hair is washed vigorously with shampoo and conditioning treatment. Your hair is then towel dried. Next, your hair artist will use a blow dryer and a round brush to style your hair. This technique reduces frizz. Depending on the hairstyle you are looking for, your stylists can straighten, curl, or create waves. Next, cold air from the blow dryer locks in the hairstyle, while creating shine. Lastly, your stylist may use a curling iron or flat iron to add dimension and finalize your desired look.

Blowout Popularity

Blowouts are popular because they allow you to achieve a quality style and sheen easily. Because they last a few days with the proper care, a blowout can be a good way to prepare for the weekend. Additionally, regular blowouts are helpful for those who struggle with hair management. If you struggle with hair thickness or texture, frizz, or oily hair; blowouts can help reduce these issues.

Caring for Your Blowouts

To make the most out of your blowout experience, it is important to properly care for your hair afterward. Dry shampoos and conditioners can help preserve your style without washing it out. When washing your face, use a wide cotton headband to prevent your hairline from getting wet. For more tips on how to preserve your hair after your appointment, consult your stylist.
