A salon-style blowout is the best way to make the most out of any haircut. Save time and money with these tips on how to get a perfect sleek blowout at home. All you need are some sectioning clips, smoothing cream, a round brush, and a blow dryer with a nozzle. Watch the video for tips on how to use a nozzle to avoid frizz and drying the hard-to-reach back of your head.

Step 1

After shampooing and conditioning, spritz on a detangler and brush out your hair. Spray 5-6 pumps of Amika’s Blow Up Spray all over wet hair and brush through to distribute evenly. This will give clean hair some lightweight texture and a boost of volume.

Step 2

Section your hair in half, clipping up the top half. Using Amika’s Power Cloud Pro Dryer with the nozzle attached and a round brush to hold fine strands, take a section of hair from underneath and gently roll the brush down the strands. Start at the roots and move the dryer over the brush, making sure to pull taut and point the nozzle down. Doing this creates movement, prevents frizz, and leaves hair shiny.

Step 3

Take out the clip and repeat on the top half of my hair until it is completely dry.

Step 4

Depending on the length and texture of your hair, this might seem like it could take a long time, but the ionic technology of the Amika dryer actually speeds up the drying process compared to other hair dryers.

Step 5

Finish by misting your blowout with Amika’s Touchable Hairspray to control flyaways.

Step 6

Your blowout should last for two days, but by day three you may be in need of a little volume boost. Use Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo focusing on your roots top sop up any excess oil (Spoiler Alert: This is hands down the best-smelling dry shampoo EVER).
