Master the At-Home Blowout + Dove Giveaway
Doing your own blowout is tricky. My hairdryer and I have been frenemies for many, many years. And while I’ve mastered the art of the flat brush home blowout, managing a round brush with a hair dryer has always proved too tricky.
Now that fall has arrived and the frizz-inducing Texas humidity has thankfully lessened, it’s blowout season. Thankfully, my friends at Dove have provided this great tutorial for getting that sleek, but full hair look. I love straight and smooth, but I do not do flat. Here’s the step-by-step process used by Dove celebrity stylist Mario Antón.
- Follow these steps to recreate a voluminous blowout at home. It’s easier than you think.
- Wash your hair with Dove Hair Moisture Oxygen shampoo and conditioner to give your hair the appearance of 95 percent more body and volume after you wash. *
- Use a micro-fiber towel, which absorbs most of the excess water, to towel dry your hair and press much of the moisture out of it.
- Invest in a professional hair dryer if possible. Many have heat control settings, so you can adjust the intensity and helping to reduce the chances of burning or drying out your hair.
- Divide your hair in four to six sections and dry one at a time to make it easier to manage and style.
- Use a round brush that’s 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter, which lets you create a smooth, polished look.
- Keep the dryer about 2 to 3 inches away from the scalp to avoid causing unnecessary damage, and be sure to use a heat protector.
- Finish your look with Style + Care Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray, which helps hold your hairstyle without giving your hairdo a hard or heavy finish.
- Extra tip: Use a dry shampoo like Dove Hair Dry Shampoo so the blowout will last longer.
* Compared with flat hair.
