Beauty | 10 Tips for Making Your “Blo Out” Last by Celebrity Stylist, David Babaii‏

Women everywhere love the treat of getting a “blo out”. Especially, when you walk out of one of our Blo Blow Dry Bar locations looking fabulous, hair bouncing with every step. So how do you make that feeling and look last? Here are my 10 tips and tricks for a multi-day “blo out”.

blow-outs

  • Have your stylist start with a shampoo and conditioner that is designed for your specific hair type. My motto has always been that a great hair day starts with a clean canvas. If your hair is oily, you do not need a hydrating shampoo plus only condition the ends.
  • When you go to bed at night, consider a silky pillow case. They allow the hair to move freely while sleeping so you can prevent flattening the volume you love.
  • For those sleek straight blo outs, take a scrunchie. Gently pull hair back into a low ponytail, twisting it loosely around to keep hair in place. For longer lengths, try wrapping coated bands mid- center and at the ends of the pony. Also, a great flat iron is a must to rid your blo out of any imperfections, humidity or daily side effects from the elements.
  • When you wake up in the morning, you can freshen your scalp several ways. For my natural beauties, create a small mixture of water and lemon juice. Then, take a cotton ball moistening it slightly, making sure to squeeze any left-over juice out. Next, gently start by cleansing the hairline followed by parting small sections and cleaning the scalp area only. This will absorb and clean away any access oils while giving your hair a fresh scent. For my busy working gals, a dry shampoo is quick and easy to use.
  • In the shower, loosely wrap your hair into a soft cotton towel to keep any moisture and humidity from seeping into your do. Shower caps are great but I feel they tend to flatten your hair and cause your head to sweat; a cotton towel allows your head to breathe.

  • To refresh your volume or waves, invest in Velcro rollers (jumbo to medium sizes). Before your first cup of coffee or stepping into the shower, simply roll your fringe on a jumbo, lifting the section to a 90 degree angle so you can maintain volume. Do the same for the top, sides and back. If needed, you can add a few more. Allow the Velcro rollers to stay in for about 30 minutes, then remove and finger comb your hair into place. For beachy waves, opt for a professional grade beach spray then after spritzing, twist strands in various diameters to bring life back into your Bo-ho chic look.
  • A round brush (medium for short to chin length hair and large for longer hair) can also quickly smooth any flaws from sleeping or a shower. It can also be used to retouch your fringe. Simply use a nozzle attachment on your blow dryer to have more air concentration; then take your round brush on dry hair wrapping your fringe evenly over the brush. Follow this with a blast of hot air then a shot of cool. Roll the brush a few times if your hair has a stubborn streak to it. You can use the same technique anywhere your hair needs a quick touch-up.
  • Do not overuse products in-between blo outs. This causes the hair to not only weigh itself down but, the build-up soils your hair and scalp quicker.
  • Try not to run your fingers through your hair or play with it when bored. This increases stimulation to the scalp for unwanted oil. Also, the day-to-day soot on our hands will add some nastys.
  • If you wish to change your style in-between blo outs, accessories are always the easiest and fastest way to make simple alterations. A headband, decorative pins and clips plus great hair ties can do the trick. Try putting your hair to one side, in a ponytail or creating a faux bob. All these styles will still help to maintain your original blo out.

Finally, make sure you have made your next appointment at Blo Blow Dry Bar ~
