So long as Kate continues to like the blowout, other celebs will follow suit and the service will remain sought after. Kate’s sensible yet classy style, combined together with her girl-next-door story rising to royalty, keeps her the “hair” to the throne to observe.

If your blowout clients aren’t searching for Britishly regal style, there’s music royalty here within the USA. Pop perennial Avril Lavigne and country honey Taylor Swift both rock a chart-topping blowout after they are looking to.

Among the various actresses who decide on smooth not less than most of the time, Modern Family’s
small-screen princess Sofia Vergara looks stunning in a blowout, while naturally
straight-haired silver-screen goddess Gwyneth Paltrow achieves perfect “sleekability.”

The blowout is a brilliant win/win, since it gives clients a simple style option while giving you a service that you could book into even a hectic day. It brings the shopper into the salon more frequently, providing you with a raffle to prebook her next appointment and introduce her to a sample retail product.

A professional blowdry should last at the least three days, every day offering an extra look, in step with Sam Villa, founding partner of the Sam Villa brand and education artistic director for Redken 5th Avenue. Here’s how Sam does it:

DAY 1 (by the stylist within the salon)

STEP 1: Shampoo and condition, but apply the conditioner only from mid-shaft to ends while avoiding the basis area.

STEP 2: Mix a small amount of Redken satinwear 02 ultimate blow dry lotion with two drops of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine and apply first to the ends, then the mid shaft to arrange hair for styling, protect against heat and help to scale back frizz.

STEP 3: After dividing the hair and clipping it in sections, blowdry using a Sam Villa Signature Series Styling Brush or Oval Brush and the E-T.C. Light Professional Ionic Hair Dryer.

STEP 4: Finish with Redken wax blast 10 high impact finishing spray wax to minimize frizz, add shine and hold volume.
