Whether you’re a big blowout fan or you’ve never had one before, there’s likely a thing or two you never knew about the process. Here at Charles Ifergan, we are big fans of the blowout, so we thought we’d offer a few helpful tips on the process!

Tip #1: The style can vary. You can ask for texture, waves, curls, or even just straight hair. A blowout doesn’t have to mean that you’ll end up with a sleek, round-brushed mane (although we can do that too!). We can style your hair however you wish!

Tip #2: Communication is key. If you don’t like having certain products in your hair, or if you’re not totally in love with the style once it’s finished, let your stylist know! From start to finish, you can speak up at any time to let us know if something isn’t quite right.

Tip #3: Dry shampoo! Depending on the texture of your hair, a blowout can last anywhere from three days to a week. Using dry shampoo to absorb any oil at your roots in between appointments will help make sure your style looks great the entire time. To get some volume back into your hair after sleeping on it, flip your head over and use a bit of volumizing spray.

Tip #4: Hairspray is ok! Hairspray was the product of choice back in the day, but nowadays many girls think that hairspray equals stiff helmet-head hair. This is just not so! It is possible to give your style amazing hold while still allowing your hair to have incredible movement and body.
