Lots of women have mastered the art of the sleek, professional looking blowout right in their own homes - they use tools, such as big, round brushes, tourmaline hair dryers and hair products to create fullness, reduce frizz, and increase the longevity of their blow out. Usually wet hair will be sectioned off, and each segment will be dried individually. Women may also dry their hair upside down by bending from the waist and pointing the blow dryer at the roots of their hair - this creates more lift and volume at the roots, providing a perfect, salon-like end result. To finish, a women may create a ponytail, chignon, or up-do with her freshly dried tresses - however, a classic blowout doesn't require any elastics, barrettes, bobby pins, or other hair accessories.
Curly blow outs will be done differently - to enhance the shine and separation of curls, a diffuser may be attached to a hairdryer. Then, hair is gathered in handfuls (a gentle touch is needed) and dried with the diffuser. A few drops of shine serum may be rubbed onto the hair once it's dry. A straightening blow out will use the "sectioned off" approach, but generally, silicone styling products will be used before each section of hair is straightened. A flat iron may be used to finish blow outs on very curly hair that has been straightened. In general, it's best to leave haircuts to professionals; however, doing your own blow outs can save you plenty of money.
