Nancy Sinatra 1960 – The ultimate hair muse. She knows a thing or two about a blow out, or at least how to rock one.
My hair as you may know by now is curly. I use the blowout to straighten my hair. My hair is super-thick, so I have to use a hair primer and a volumizing hair styler. I like the look of just stepping out of the salon hair look, therefore, I like taking my time to do my hair. I have lots of body, with very heavy locks that weigh the hair down, causing my roots to be flat. Not a good look. My roots need to match the body of my hair. Also, a round brush helps to. Use a small round brush for short hair, and a large round brush for long hair. If you don’t have a medium size round brush for medium length hair, then use a large round brush. I have been giving myself a blow-out since I was teen. It’s just evolved over the years. Below are my tips to how I create my blow-out, that I have received compliments on. I still do.

As long as you have a volumizing hair styling product, plus hydrant to hydrate your hair, alcohol-free hair spray to keep it in place, and so your locks aren’t stiff. I don’t use hair-spray. With my primer in my mane, my hair surprisingly stays in place. Those of you who have very, very thick hair; enough hair for three heads, as my stylist as told me once, then you really ought to try primer. It stays in place in through the rain
When your hair is damp apply your hair styling products. Doesn’t matter which order. Just as long as it’s applied when damp.
Section your hair with section clips (GOODY), after your prepped your (with styling products). Begin your blow-out.
Because, I like my hair to have a flip out, my brush is always on top of the hair, except when I’m creating volume on my roots, then the brush is under my hair. I create volume first, then work on flipping my hair out.
Hair Tip: If you want height on your roots, make sure your round brush goes right up to the ceiling. With the brush under your sectioned stripped hair.
