I love the high you get from a fabulous blow-out — that extra boost of confidence that comes with shiny, polished locks. But who can afford to hit the salon every other day? It can be a terribly time-consuming and costly addiction. (So I’ve learned!)
To help us achieve a professional blow-out sans salon, I’ve enlisted the help of celebrity stylist Edward Tricomi. Below, he reveals his secrets to achieving two star-worthy styles: a sleek, straight look, and a more voluminous version of the classic. I’ve tried both and they’re spot-on, but do note that the tools listed are key.
The Style: Ultra-Sleek and Straight
After rinsing, towel dry your hair to get all the moisture out. Next, apply a styling serum to tame frizz and smooth flyaways.
Then section your hair, and use the Warren-Tricomi Tension Brush to pull each section straight as you blow-dry. And finally, use a flat iron to lock-in the style.
The Style: Va-Va-Voluminous
(Note: If you plan to wear your hair in this style often, ask your stylist to cut long layers into your hair.)
After shampooing and conditioning, apply a volumizing spray throughout your hair.
The size of the brush you choose for the next step depends on how much hair you have. If you have a full head of thick hair, opt for a large, vented round brush. If you have fine hair, use a smaller version of the same brush.
Next, section your hair and use the brush to blow-dry each section. After you dry a section, spray your roots with a setting product, like Warren-Tricomi Hot-Set Spray, to add volume, and you’re good to go.
