Procure the Perfect Blowout with John Frieda

If there’s one hairdo women believe can’t be done on their own, it’s the perfect blowout. John Frieda International Creative Consultant Harry Josh, who’s worked with the likes of Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rose Byrne, has come to our rescue. One of the things we tend to forget when perfecting any style is slowing down. “Taking the time to do it correctly may be an extra ten minutes, but you’ll have gorgeous hair for at least 24 hours,” he explained. “It’s not worth rushing it!”

Whatever your tresses’ weakness, he recommends prepping the hair with a pre-blowout product that targets and corrects it. Use Frizz-Ease Hair Serum in the Original Formula or the Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control, depending on your hair type, to soaked tresses to tame flyaways. If your mane is overworked and damaged, try the Full Repair Style Revival to protect hair from heat styling and restore your strands’ strength. Pump up the volume with the Luxurious Volume Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster.

Create one to one and a half inches thick sections and blow dry one at a time to fully dry and create volume and sleekness. Boar bristle brushes work best for a blowout, as metal bristles get too hot and cause snags and breaks. be sure to point the blow dryer at the roots and follow the brush as you pull your hair straight. Don’t rush – get the look right the first time, so you don’t have to do it over and risk breakage. Polish off the look properly with an extra touch of Frizz Ease or keep the volume up with a spritz of Luxurious Volume Anytime Volume Refresher at your roots for a look that will last day and night.
