Best Blow-out tips
1. Prep and Product Application:
Start with clean, towel-dried hair. Apply your chosen styling products, making sure you evenly distribute the products throughout your hair.
2. Drying Technique:
Begin drying your hair by tipping your head upside down to create volume. Dry from the roots towards the ends using your fingers or a paddle brush until your hair is 75% dry. Concentrate on the root area for maximum lift which will also help your style to last longer
Sectioning your hair makes the hair easier to manage and ensures a polished finish, Separate the front from the back and the top from the bottom. Clip the sections out of the way.
4. Drying Process:
The key to a professional blow-out is thoroughly stretching each section as you dry it.
Take 2-3cm defined sub-sections and dry each one thoroughly by, lifting the hair up and rolling it over the brush. Use even tension and direct the air down the hair for a smooth result. Repeat until all sections are dry
5. Cool and Shape:
To set the style, volume and movement, once each section is dry wrap it around the brush, roll it up, and blast it with cold air. Or you could use a Velcro roller for extra hold. Letting it cool before touching it re-enforces the volume, curl and bounce
6. Finishing Touches:
Once hair is dried and cool, use fingers or a paddle brush to shape the style. Add volume with styling powder or texture spray at the roots. Don't style and shape the hair until it is completely cool as the residual heat will cause the hair hair to drop and can create frizz
7. Final Steps:
Finish with hairspray or shine spray for the ultimate polished look.
For a longer-lasting style and to protect the hair while you sleep. Give it a quick spray at the roots with some Kevin Murphy FRESH.HAIR and pop your hair in a silk scarf or sleep cap.
