I recently I had the pleasure of #gettingblown and chatting with the pros at Dry Parlour Inc. about the recipe for an amazing blow out. If you don`t already know, Dry Parlour Inc. is not your ordinary salon-they don’t do cuts or colours -they simply take the hair you’ve got and blow it out so that you walk out looking like the best version of yourself!
So why was my experience so amazing? Besides the fact that I felt like a million bucks and never want to blow dry my own hair again, I was genuinely pampered from beginning to end.Their Standard Blowout is only $32 and last for days! They even have a an option to start a tab, which saves you some serious bucks in the long run. Genius I say!!
So let’s get to the goods and check out Dry Parlour Inc‘s Easy Steps to achieve that knock’em dead professional blowout!
6 Easy Steps for your Best Blow Out Yet
A Great Wash– It’s important to remove all the buildup and residue and make sure you have a clean slate. Dry Parlour Inc. Stylist, Julie, even recommends a double wash to be sure.
Prep Your Hair Right– Great products are essential to perfecting your best blowout. Dry Parlour Inc. works exclusively with Kevin Murphy products which I have absolutely fallen in love with. During this blowout, Julie prepped by hair with Full Again (Thickening Lotion) which I now use on a regular basis, Staying Alive (Leave-in Treatment) and Anti Gravity Spray (Weightless Volume Spray) secret is to coat every strand of hair with product.
Dry it to 80% – One of the simplest steps, Pre-drying your hair with your fingers or a paddle brush gets most of the work done before you get to styling
Section off Hair -Into about 5 Sections depending on how much hair you have (Top Middle, Left Side, Right Side, Top Back Lower Back) This makes your hair easier to manage and style and ensures you’re not continually drying and styling the same hair.
Style with a Round Brush -Dry the root of each section first followed by the rest and finish it off with a blast of cool air. Lastly gently unravel your hair leaving it with a curl.
Set Your Hair (Using Pin curls or velcro rollers allow your hair to set while you finish off the rest of the sections)
Optional– Give it that added volume by gently teasing your hair and spraying it with hair spray.
PRO TIP from Dry Parlour Stylish Julie: after teasing each small section and giving it a spay hold the hair over the hairspray bottle to keep that voluminous shape!
