What Tools Do You Need to Perfect the 90s Blowout Hair?

  1. Quality Shampoo and Conditioner
    Having good result with your blowout starts with your wash. By investing in quality shampoo and conditioner, you will guarantee that you’ve removed any product build and gave your hair the nourishment it needs. It’s setting the stage for the best possible blowout hair you can give yourself.
  2. Detangling Brush
    Brushing your hair is important for many reasons. It helps encourage circulation in your scalp, redistribute hair oils, and detangling your hair.
  3. Blow Dryer/Round Brush/Blow Dryer Brush
    Welcome to the “choose your own adventure” part of your blowout hair routine. If you have the dexterity to use both a blow dryer and a round brush, you are elite! However, if you struggle to manage both of tools in your hands, don’t be ashamed to use a blow dryer brush! There are many on the market that make it much easier to round out the ends your hair. If you can end up with beautiful hair, and no frustration headache, I’d chalk that up as a win.

Optional Tools:

  • Voloom
    This is the newest tool I’ve added into my blowout arsenal. It adds instant volume and texture to the roots of your hair. For me, even though I have a lot of hair, my hair is very soft and doesn’t have the texture to hold the volume I really want from my blowouts.(Insert Before and After Picture Here)If you’re interested in trying the Voloom Iron 2.0, you can find it here!
  • Velcro Rollers
    By using velcro rollers, it gives you the opportunity to set your blowout. This isn’t a necessary step but it will increase the longevity of your style. This is because when you heat style your hair, you are breaking the hydrogen bonds in your hair. As your hair cools back down, those hydrogen bonds reform in the shape they are held in. Letting your hair cool in the shape of the velcro rollers will help to lock in your style.

The Importance of a Finishing Product

After you’ve put all the work in to achieve the perfect 90’s blowout hair, it’s important to lock it in for (hopefully!) multiple day wear. One of my favorites to finish a round brush blow out is the Perfecting Hairspray. It provides protection against humidity, eliminates frizz and adds weightless structure. Even if you’re not a hairspray girlie, I’m telling you this one is different! Don’t be afraid because of the traumatizing crunchy hair days. You’ve grown and so has the hairspray world!

Preserving Your Blowout Hair

If you fall in the majority of people who struggle to keep their hair looking fresh overnight, an option to keep your blowout hair bouncy and fresh is using a heatless curling set while you sleep.
