What Are Blowouts For Hair?
Blowout services are typically described as having you spend more money, bigger packages include hotter rollers, and very expensive shampoo and conditioner. They are usually done at salons that have enough budget to invest in high-end products and technology to facilitate the process.
Most people associate blowouts with hairdos or fashion looks such as straight hair with big curls, long locks, and/or fishtail buns. But there is one type of blown out hairstyle that some may not recognize — what we refer to as a regular old everyday blowout!
Regular blowouts are simply when your hair is dried and rolled up into a bun (no hot rolls or anything extra like fluff or hairsprays used). This article will talk about how to do this style at home! Read on to find out more.
Why do you get a blowout?
Most people agree that hair is a beautiful feature of yours, which is why most individuals strive to keep it as lush and high quality as possible. When your hair is in desperate need of refreshment or someone wants to see all of its different styles, a professional blowout is the way to go!
A professional blowout is done at salons and is typically priced around $20-30 per individual. The person doing the hairstyling will use very expensive shampoo and conditioners to make sure everything is cleaned properly, use the right tools to style the hairs, and spend time taking their time to create a beautifully styled look.
Most professionals have specific routines they follow with each other’s hair so that the finished product is consistent and looks like it was designed and created by them.
Products used for a blowout
To begin, you will need to make sure your hair is completely dry. This means using a large round brush or comb to remove all of the moisture from the hair.
Next, add some more strong chemicals (or increase the strength of an existing chemical) into your hairdressing product to see what happens! The term strong refers to how much acid or alkali the molecule contains.
You can test this by mixing a small amount of each ingredient together and observing what shape it takes. When the mixture becomes foam or froth, that indicates there was enough activity to occur.
Blowouts are usually done with a flat-bodied curling iron or rollers which are then set in warm water to continue drying the hair.
Steps to a blowout
The term "blowout" typically refers to getting all of your hair done from top to bottom, but it can mean much more than that! A popular way to do this is by using what are called rollers.
A roller is like a long tube made of plastic or cardboard. You take very thin hairs that have not been cut away yet and insert them into the roller mouth-wise along with a supply of rollercutting solution.
Then you rotate the roller as you apply some strong winds to pull out the curls. This method will give you beautiful loose waves and curls.
There are many ways to use rollers, but one of our favorite ways to use rollers is for a blowout. We recommend doing a half up-do or full braid and using our Hairstyling Tools Collection to hold it together while rolling.
If you want to try giving yourself a professional looking blowout, then start practicing by doing a few small ones first.
Popular styles of blowouts
To begin with, there are three main styles of blowout that people do to their hair. They are called fish-tail or waterfall style, spiral roll-up (or crown roll-back), and ruffle or fluffier finish.
All three require you to start off by giving your hair a good wash and condition it properly. Then, using small clamps, hold each section of hair in place while rolling up the rest of the hair.
Once this is done, apply some strong gel or glue to seal the ends and let dry. The kind of gel or glue depends on which type of hairstyle you will be doing!
And if you’re looking to add some more glamour to yours, then invest in professional quality gels and glues.
Another way to add some oomph to your hair is by adding human or manufactured hairs! These are called hairstyling products that can be glued in, stuck onto, or woven into your own natural locks.
A popular form of this is what people call a “bob” or “faux bang” which is when one part of the scalp is shaved and then the user adds longer, fuller hairs from cuttings or wigs. This looks great if you like a classic look and want to try something new!
Another common extension style is braid-dropping, where one long strand is attached to two other strands at 90 degree angles creating a beautiful looking cascade. Both of these require professional help to do correctly, but you can learn how to do them yourself with YouTube tutorials!
There are many types of extensions beyond just braids and fake mustaches! Many people have plastic fibers inserted under their skin or implanted into their scalp, both of which work well and are very safe. Others use wefts, which are small bundles of hair glued directly onto the scalp.
Styles that try to be a version of a blowout
Another popular way to give yourself a style makeover is with what are called “blow-out styles”. These can easily be done at home!
They go by different names, like beach wave or braid roll-up, but they all have one thing in common — lots of beautiful, long, loose waves or braids.
To create one of these hairstyles, you start off with a closed hair section. Then, using your brush, get some heavy rake (side to side) movement going on the length you want to keep the same.
Once it is almost as wide as you wanted, then take the next shorter piece and pull it over the top slowly, keeping it tight until it sits naturally. Keep pulling and rolling up the longer piece, letting it cascade down around the neck.
Tips for a perfect blowout
The most fundamental way to give yourself or someone else a beautiful, relaxed hairstyle is by doing a good hair wash. This includes detangling your own hair as well as someone elses!
When was the last time you took care of your own hair? If you have ever seen someone with beautifully styled locks, they probably did their own hair. People are very passionate about hairdressing – it’s a craft that takes lots of practice.
We don’t all start out knowing how to do our own hair, but everyone can learn how to give themselves or others a nice cut. It will take some time, energy and money, but overall it's worth it!
Blowouts are one of the best types of haircuts You can get. They're easy to do, and even though there are many different styles, every person has different shaped heads so there is no wrong style.

When doing a professional-looking blowout, there are two main things you need to do. One is to wash and condition your hair properly, and the other is to use the right products.
When washing your hair, make sure to go in with a wide toothbrush and apply enough shampoo so that it lathers up. Then, rinse thoroughly! If your hairs get stuck in the drain, run some more shampoo through it until it clears. This will take extra time, but your locks will thank you later.
After rinsing out all of the water, roll your head upside down and let any remaining fluid drip away. Your scalp will feel very dry and flaky after this, which can be uncomfortable or even hurtful. Make sure to prewash your hair before the holdup to avoid this.
Once your hair is completely dried, mix together a small amount of gel (or mousse) and bobby pins to create some strong holds. Use as many as necessary to keep your hair in place while drying.
