A Perfect Blow Out

How do you replicate the way your hair feels and looks after leaving the salon?

Having the best tools and products will get you far, but it's mastering the actual technique of brush and dryer that takes your blow out to the next level. Here are some tips to think about:

Sedu Dryer
Normally you see the air concentrator sitting perpendicular to the handle of the dryer (see photo). Try rotating it to be parallel to the handle.  This allows you to hold the dryer at a more comfortable, controlled angle.

Product 1
A vented round brush circulates air around the hair, speeding up dry time and leaves a soft bounce of volume. Got weak arms? There are plenty brushes labeled "lightweight." My obsession is the Cricket Centrix Alumilite Thermal Round Brush, it weighs practically nothing.

Product 1
This sounds more intense than it is, but as you dry your hair don't be afraid to pull and stretch it straight. This removes any wave in the strand and as Mitch Stone says, (celebrity stylist and founder of Mitch Stone Essentials), "It's the stretch and pull that creates the shine."

For more tips watch this video with Gregory Patterson from Blow, The New York Blow Dry Bar.

Curly Nikki
Curly haired expert Nikki Walton, founder of, suggests those with textured kinky, curly hair skip the brush all together.

"Try tension blow drying, in which you simply stretch your hair with one hand and in a downward motion, blast your roots with warm (not hot) heat. It's less manipulation than your typical blow out and gently straightens your roots."
