How To: Make Your At-Home Blow-Out Last Longer

Give yourself a killer blowout on Friday evening. Get wild on said Friday evening. Awake Saturday morning with bird’s nest in hair & no sign of ever having blown out hair. Sound familiar?  Kick crazy hair to the curb! Keep goodies like these on hand in your maintenance arsenal and take these tips from Salon Owner and Celeb Stylist Adrian De Berardinis of De Berardinis Salon. You’ll be a hair goddess, we assure you.


Blow-out at home: Keep in mind, a clean rinsing shampoo/conditioner wash & meticulous precision while drying are both very important. Don’t cut any corners and use a good brush & blowdryer. Even small mistakes will turn in to entirely frizz-tastic times. Depending on your hair-type, products should be added in dime sized amounts at a time, working from the back forward to avoid over-application.  “Use section clips to section out hair when blowing out. Organization can save you loads of time.” says De Berardinis.

Next Day Service, per De Berardinis: If you don’t have time to re-blow-dry your hair use hot rollers or a curling iron to revive to your previous blow-dry. This will add shine and bounce back to that deflated blowout.  Use less product, and avoid ponytails and clips that would cause dents. Dry shampoo is another great product to use to make your blowout last longer.
