The perfect blowout
While I would love to say I am one of those girls who can pop out of the shower, knot together a messy braid, then undo my luscious waves around lunchtime, I am afraid my hair routine is a little more high maintenance. For me, a straightening iron and blow dryer are my security blankets, throw in a curling iron for fancy events and I'll be good to go, so when the amazing people at Misikko sent me a straightening iron to test out, I unhesitatingly warmed it up for a try. I decided to pair it with this amazing blowout tutorial because along with my dream of air-dried beach hair, I would also love to master a go-to blow dry routine. The steps are a little tricky in the beginning, but leave a surprising amount of volume in the end.
All you have to do is section hair into 5 sections (6 if you have thick hair) and secure with a clip. Then dry each section with nozzle down, rolling hair around the brush. Blast each section with cool air then repeat until head is dry. I like to use the straightening iron to smooth out the entire look, twisting each section around the iron to create a soft wave. I was particularly amazed at how shiny this one made my hair and loved how soft it felt before I even added any product. Check out a few of these professional blow dryers and straightening irons from Misikko to help with the blowout routine, they even tuck in fun goodies like makeup and hair products into their packaging. Does anyone else have some good hair tricks?
