Even though hair salons have been open for some time now, it’s safe to say that we’re not frequenting them for our blowouts like we used to but that doesn’t mean you have to go without. There are so many tools on the market now that will give you salon-worthy results all without leaving the house — a dream come true, right? The thing with these tools is that some take some getting used to. There is a bit of a learning curve but once you get the hang of styling your own hair, you’ll be golden.
Here are 7 tools that’ll give you a gorgeous at-home blowout!
Conair Ceramic Hot Air Brush
If you’re looking to keep costs at a minimum, then Conair’s Frizz Free Hot Air Brush should be on your radar. This baby works double-time to not only dry your hair but also style it at the same time. With just a few swift movements, you can achieve mega volume and smooth, polished tresses in no time. Plus it also has cool air which is used to set your curls for maximum staying power!
Remington Pro Wet2Style Oval Dryer & Volumizing Brush
Another fab blowdry brush to know about is this one by Remington. Its unique oval-shaped design allows for maximum volume at the root as well as smoothing out any frizz. Plus it won’t give you that too round 1950s housewife kind of blowout but more of an effortless cool-girl modern one. If you’re concerned about heat damage, you can rest assured knowing that the brush’s ceramic and titanium coating has your back.
Amika Blowout Babe Thermal Round Hair Brush
A brand beloved by the pros is Amika and its Thermal Round Hair Brush will definitely be loved by you as well. This baby has a thermal ceramic barrel and ion generator that emits far-infrared heat and negative ions which means faster styling and smooth, frizz-free results. Honestly, what could be better?!
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
Arguably the one that started it all is Revlon’s One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. Affordable in price, this baby is lightweight and has multiple heat settings so you don’t have to worry about scorching your locks. Not only do the nylon-tipped bristles detangle but the tufted boar ones grip the hair and create a frizz-free shine.
Dry Bar The Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush
DryBar is a highly recognized salon with locations across the US that specialize in one thing — blowouts. Fortunately for us Canadians, we can thankfully get out hands on the salon’s products that are a bit pricy but once you see the results are totally worth it. DryBar’s Blow-Dryer Brush is amazing for anyone who is inept with a round brush because it does all the tricky work for you. In just a few simple steps you’ll be ready to walk out the door with glamorous salon-worthy results!
Dyson Airwrap Styler
At-home blowouts can be tricky because even though you’re not blow drying and round brushing at the same time, it can be tough to get the right amount of volume and curl in each section. If this sounds all-too-familiar, the Dyson Airwrap might be what you need. While its hefty price is a bit intimidating, you can’t deny that it works wonders once you see it in action. Your hair gets lightly curled around the brush head without the use of extreme heat. It literally couldn’t be easier!
