How to Master a “Smoothout,” a Blowout You Can Actually Do at Home
With blowdry bars sprouting up on street corners near you, it’s too tempting to pop in and have a pro give you the best blowout you have ever had — like, weekly. The thing is, it isn’t feasible for you to go that often, both time- and budget-wise. But on the flipside, DIY-ing a legit blowout at home can be tricky.
Here’s a little confession: I’m a hairstylist and I HATE doing blowouts! They take forever and, to be honest, it hurts my arms to do them. But I, like all of you, LOVE the results of a solid blowout, which is how I became determined to hack it. And here’s what I found: If you skip the curls — and the tedious styling that goes along with it — on your at-home blowout, the results will look a lot more pro, faster. Introducing the Smooth Out, a totally do-able blowout that gives you that covetable volume and smooth finish all on your own and in half the time that you would spend in the salon. Here’s how to do this 15-20 minute style to get gorgeous hair for up to three whole days.
