Best Blow Out Secrets

Alyssa Kolsky Hertzig, Contributing Executive Beauty Editor for Allure Magazine shares her Blow Out Tips in “Surprising Tricks for Making a Blow Out Last.” We agree with Hertzig and want to share our own beauty secrets so you can get the most out of your blowout.

Tip 1: 

Practice pre-emptive dry-shampooing: Don’t wait until a day or two after your blowout, when you’re already greasy, to take action. Hairstylist Theodore Leaf recently taught me to spritz a little dry shampoo at the roots immediately after a blow-dry. “Dry shampoo is my little insurance policy,” he says. “Put it on so it can soak up oil before it happens.”

Haven: We love bumble and bumble hair powder. It soaks up the natural oil and adds extra volume!

Tip 2:

Sleep right: Eight hours of being smooshed on a pillow can murder your blowout. Beauty news editor Heather Muir preserves hers by sleeping with her hair twisted into two Princess-Leia-style buns. I like to pull mine into a low ponytail, secured with a loose scrunchie. (Don’t judge—they may not be cute, but they’re much less likely to leave dents than hair elastics.)

Haven: Make sure you don’t pull your hair back too tight or you will loose all the volume

Tip 3:

Protect it from the elements at all costs: Rain is your blowout’s mortal enemy so avoid it if you can. Editorial Assistant Catherine O’Neill even wears one of those old-school plastic bonnets: “I look like a grandma running through Manhattan, but there’s a reason Grandma’s hair always looked so good, right?”

Haven: Avoid the humidity. Use your umbrella. If your winter coat has a hood, put that bad boy on.

Tip 4:

Touch it up. Even the best blowouts usually require a few minutes of freshening each morning. If things start to look puffy, I pull out my blowdryer and round brush and perfect just the front and top sections. (I’m less worried about the underside—no one really sees it anyway.) If the blowout has started to get curly, I use a one-inch curling iron to add random looses waves all over my head. (The curling iron also helps to tamp down any frizz that has cropped up.) And if all else fails, I pull my hair back into a ponytail and flat iron just the ends, for an easy, sleek look.

Haven: Keep prep or tonic on hand. Mist your hair and blow dry  in all directions, the product used for your original blow out has memory and will bring your style back to life.
