Have a hot date tonight? Maybe a girls’ night out? Whatever the occasion, you want your hair to look hot! We recently got a few moments with John Frieda’s Harry Josh (he did Rose Byrne’s hair for the Oscars) and snagged a few tips on achieving the perfect blowout at home.
1. Prep your hair. “Take a good look at your hair type and identify its weakness,” Josh says, citing examples like frizz and lack of volume. When you get out of the shower, treat your hair with a product that targets that weakness: Frizz-Ease (Original Formula Hair Serum or the new Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control) for frizzy hair, or Fully Repair Style Revival for damaged, overworked tresses.
2. Add heat. Josh suggests tackling your hair one section at a time, separating it into one-inch chunks. “This will ensure that you’re getting your hair truly dry, as well as creating the optimum amount of volume and sleekness,” he explains. Be sure to use the right brush, too; Josh recommends one with boar bristles, since brushes with metal bristles can get too hot, snagging and breaking hair.
