A hair blowout is the process of drying your hair using a blow dryer and a round brush. This leaves your hair soft, sleek, and shiny, and at the same time, full of movement. You may also add waves or curls as you blow dry your hair to give your tresses some bounce. A hair blowout is a versatile ‘do, that’s why knowing how to blow out hair is a skill worth having.

If you haven’t tried giving your hair a blowout, don’t worry! You can choose from four easy blowout techniques, and we’re here to teach you how to do them. So, sit back, have your blow dryer and round brush on standby, and get ready to learn how to style your hair like a professional.

If you want to keep your look natural, the traditional blowout is for you. Its subtle waves give your locks some flair without taking too much of the spotlight. It’s also perfect for those with thick hair as it doesn’t create more volume than needed.

Step 1

Wash hair

A good blowout, no matter the technique, always starts with freshly washed hair. To make your hair easy to style, use a shampoo that makes your hair smooth like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex that penetrates your hair up to 10 layers deep. It gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash! These include making your hair soft, smooth, and shiny, providing heat protection, taming flyaways, detangling, and strengthening your hair. This shampoo also has an anti-frizz and anti-humidity formulation, so your hairstyle stays on point.

After shampooing, always condition your hair to protect it from dryness. We recommend TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Serum Conditioner. Aside from KERA10 Protein Complex, this conditioner also has oleo serum that deeply nourishes your hair and leaves it moisturized.

Roll and blow

After washing your hair, dry it using a blow dryer and round brush. To create body, take a section of hair near your crown and roll it while blow drying it.

Rotate brush

Rotate the brush a bit as you reach the tips when unrolling your hair. This will give your hair more volume. You can take another section and repeat the steps if you want more body and natural-looking waves.
