New York City women pride themselves on looking beautiful all year round. In the summer, this means a shiny, bouncy blowout without a hint of frizz or cowlicks. Fortunately, our expert hair stylists at NYGLAMCLUB have tips to help you achieve the perfect summer blowout. As Manhattan’s top on-demand beauty salon, we offer hair and makeup services in your home, hotel room, office, or at our Upper East Side blowout bar.
Here are the top 10 hair stylist-approved blowout tips we recommend:
1. Avoid Humidity
Muggy summer weather causes hair to frizz. Don’t even try giving yourself a blowout in your humid bathroom. Move to the bedroom instead.
2. Ditch The Towel
Wrapping your hair in a towel after the shower will cause tangles and frizz. Use a cotton t-shirt to gently squeeze out excess water.
3. Protect From Heat
Before you start your blowout, use heat protectant products on your tresses. This will prevent damage and keep your hair healthy.
4. Choose A High-Quality Dryer
The cheap dryers at your local drugstore will never yield salon-quality blowouts. Instead, choose a mid-range ionic dryer to keep your hair smooth. Our hair stylists at NYGLAMCLUB will recommend the right hairdryer for your locks.
5. Start At The Roots
Start your blowout at the roots with your head upside-down. This technique maximizes volume in your hair.
6. Get Personal
If you have a hairstyle with a lot of layers, at NYGLAMCLUB, we recommend adding lots of bounce to create a flattering shape. People with blunt haircuts should opt for a sleek, straight blowout.
7. Build Tension
Wrap small sections of hair around a round brush, and pull to create tension as you’re drying.
8. Focus On Rebellious Areas
Next, use your hairdryer and a flat brush to blast cowlicks and unruly pieces into place.
9. Aim Down
Pay attention to how your dryer is aimed during the blowout. Aiming down your scalp will keep your blowout chic and smooth.
10. Lock It In Place
Finally, spritz on some hairspray and shine booster to finish your style.
