Getting a blowout at your local hair salon is a great way to pamper yourself and achieve a style you love. In fact, blowouts have become so popular that they have led to the pop up of “blow dry bars” or “dry bars” that specialize in just this style! But why pay more when you can have the same experience at a Fantastic Sams near you? Read on to learn more about one of the most popular women’s hairstyles of today, and stop into a Fantastic Sams to experience it for yourself!

What Is a Blowout?

If you’ve gotten a haircut and style at a hair salon, then you’ve likely gotten some form of a blowout before. This hairstyle involves washing your hair, blow drying it, and styling it, although if you ask for a blowout specifically, your hair will be styled while it is blow dried with a round brush or other tools rather than with a curling iron or straightener.

The Process

At Fantastic Sams, a blowout often starts with FS Shampoo Therapy™ for an intensive wash and relaxing scalp massage. Then, your hair stylist will towel off excess moisture and start the next step with a blow dryer. One of the secrets to a great blowout is lifting sections of your hair to dry and style one at a time, typically with a round brush.

The Results

You can achieve waves, curls, or straight hair with a blowout, depending on what you ask for. Regardless of the style, a blowout offers smooth, sleek hair full of volume. One of the greatest advantages of a blowout? It can last for days, depending on the thickness and texture of your hair. Many blowouts look great for three to five days with the right care techniques, which makes it a great hairstyle for special events like weddings or a weekend getaway or simply a self-care night in the middle of the week.

Tips for Caring for Your Blowout

Now that you’ve achieved a gorgeous blowout, how do you make it last? One thing we recommend is gathering your hair at the top of your head in a loose style before you go to bed so you don’t crush all that volume. A loose bun or ponytail should work well, and try to find a hair tie that won’t crimp your style — scrunchies may be old school, but they are a great solution! You should also use a shower cap when your body needs a scrub and treat oily roots with dry shampoo to help your blowout last a few extra days.
