CLEAN HAIR (TRUST US, YOU CARE)
It may sound obvious, but starting with clean hair is key. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Our favorites: the Signature Shampoo line from Oribe or Bain Chronologiste from Kérastase—it cleanses the scalp while revitalizing hair.
You don’t spend a day in the sun without sunscreen—the same rules apply for hair. Don’t expose your hair to heat without protection. We’re fans of Oribe’s Imperial Blowout Transformative Styling Crème that provides thermal protection, softens hair while adding body, prevents breakage and even strengthens hair. Need additional suggestions? Stop in and ask one of our stylists. All of our products provide heat protection up to 450 degrees. (Which is a must for maintaining healthy hair.)
YOUR BLOW DRYER AND BRUSH MATTER
Salon-quality blow dryers and brushes make a huge difference—they help fight frizz and cut down on drying time. (Pro Tip: Be sure to dry hair completely from root-to-tip, starting at the root.)
FINISHING TOUCHES: BLOWOUT MAKE OR BREAK
This step is vital, ladies. Don’t ruin it by choosing products that will leave your hair looking (and feeling) heavy. We love Oribe’s Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray for a light hold. Bonus: It has a Miami-tested anti-humidity shield so your hair will stay frizz-free regardless of the weather.
Bonus: A few tricks to keep that blowout looking fresh for days.
- CONSIDER your haircut and the type of blowout you want to achieve: voluminous, smooth or bouncy
- USE dry shampoo. It’s a beautiful blowout’s best friend. (Our favorites are Kérastase and Oribe.)
- ROLL your hair with Velcro rollers to maintain volume
- SLEEP on silk with your hair in a scrunchy on top of your head
- WEAR a shower cap
- AVOID hot tubs, saunas, swimming and rain
