How To: Blowout Your Hair Like a Pro!

Welcome to Fika Beauty, where we're all about making you look and feel like your best self. While we love pampering you at our salon, we also understand that achieving that perfect blowout at home is a skill everyone can benefit from. That's why we're here to spill our insider secrets on how to achieve a salon-quality blowout! In this step-by-step guide, we'll walk you through the process of creating a sleek and beautiful blowout that will make you feel like a pro!

Step One: Prep Your Hair

Before you even think about grabbing that hairdryer, it's essential to start with clean, damp hair. Begin by washing your hair with a high-quality shampoo and conditioner. We always recommend shampooing your scalp TWICE and following up with conditioner on your mid-lengths to ends! Towel-dry your hair gently to remove excess moisture.

Step Two: Heat Protect!

Our secret weapon for a flawless blowout is that we don't overuse products. Our favorites are the Alcove Multitasking Spray: mist all over to detangle and protect your hair while speeding up your blowdry time. Follow up with the DesignME Volumizing Mousse: apply at your roots and brush through to your ends.

Step Three: Fluff Dry Then Section Your Hair

Make your life easy by letting your blowdryer do most of the work before your arms get involved 😅 Fluff dry your hair until it is almost dry (about 90%). Then divide your hair into manageable sections. Start by creating a section at the back and securing the rest of your hair out of the way. This ensures even drying and styling.

Step Four: Begin Blow Drying

Now it's time to bring out the big guns – your hairdryer is only as good as the brush you use with it. Opt for a quality dryer with various heat and speed settings and, depending on the length of your hair, we love a good 2" round brush. Using your brush, start at the roots, pulling the hair upward and away from your scalp. As you move down the length of your hair, follow the brush with the dryer's nozzle, directing the airflow downward. Repeat this process for each section, working your way around your head.

Step Five: Cool Down❄️

Once each section is dry, switch your dryer to the cool setting to set your style. This step is crucial for locking in the shape and adding extra shine to your locks.

Step 6: Add Volume

To create extra volume, flip your head upside down and give your roots a final blast of cool air. This lifts the hair away from your scalp, and sets it with THE MOST volume 🙌

Finally, finish with a light-weight serum for shine and a hairspray for extra hold. Damn, look at you! You just did a bombshell blowout at home!
