Out of all the skills I’ve taught myself in the past few years, I must say that I’ve gotten the most mileage out of my ability to (finally!) give myself the perfect bouncy, smooth blowout!  I used to spend SO much money on blowdry bars, and to be honest the results were never consistent.  After Marlowe was born, my normally stick-straight hair developed one large section in the back that was totally frizzy and wavy all of a sudden (thanks, hormones) and so if I left my hair to dry on its own it always looked pretty wonky.  Not to mention kind of flat at the root and just limp in the front.  I took some time to observe how other people would blow dry my hair, asked some of my hairstylist friends for tips, and I finally got down an awesome technique! Today I’m sharing a blowdry video with you in case you are in need of some tips and tricks yourself!

    Thank you! Tried your tips this morning (note to self: buy that hairdryer — my poor arms!). My hair didn’t turn out as nice as yours, but it wasn’t bad, and I thought it looked halfway decent until this afternoon when my coworker said, “Looks like we’re all having bad hair days today.” ? Guess that means I need to keep practicing. ?

    • Oh no!! Lol. Gotta love a charming coworker (eyeroll!)
      Yes, it definitely does take practice, and a lightweight hairdryer helps a ton!

    First off, you have beautiful hair! It looks so healthy and the color is gorgeous! Second, thanks for showing this – it looks manageable and also good you don’t need to have a ton of special tools and products! ?

    • Thanks, Melissa!!! Yes, I try to show things that are manageable for others, I was a newbie when I learned how to do this!

    My hair really curls with any moisture. How do you stop the wet hair from touching the newly dried hair? I feel like sectioning off wouldn’t be enough for me. I can’t wait to try this. Thanks!

    • You can use clips to section, and it won’t make too big of an impact on your dried hair! It’s the same way they do it at a salon

    Do you still use these same products to protect your hair now? I would love an updated blow dry post! I know your hair is longer now … would love to see how you do it now.
