Best date hair ever? Exactly how to nail the bouncy blowout this V-Day
1. Remove excess moisture
Sop up water by gently squeezing locks with a towel (never rubbing - you'll break strands ). Next, work in a few drops of a blow-dry prep lotion with root booster to protect from the heat and provide volume. Grab your dryer and give hair a quick, all-over blast until hair is just damp.
2. Clip It
Use clips to get most of your strands out of the way, leaving only your bangs and face-framing pieces loose. Keep your sections small, so you’re not drying too much at a time, which causes frizz.
3. Get a fly dry
Using a large round brush in one hand and a dryer in the other, start at your hairline, drying 2-inch pieces at a time. Begin at the roots, moving the dryer and brush down your strands together repeatedly to keep things smooth.
4. End with a cool blast
The trick to getting strands maximum volume is getting hair totally dry at the finish. To check, switch from hot air to cool when you’re almost finished. If it feels cold to the touch after, it may need another blast of hot air. When each section is dry, pull it up in a loose loop and clip it in place.
5. Make it last
When you’re finished, remove all clips and give your locks a final brush. Mist with a light spray to lock down the look. Gorgeous!
