How to Do a Salon-Quality Blowout at Home

How to Do a Salon-Quality Blowout at Home

Hairstylist Julie Dickson Shares a Secret

The perfect blowout — one that leaves your hair silky, shiny, immune to humidity, and lasts, if you’re careful, three days — is magic. And the stylists in salons are magicians, guarding their secrets like the cure to baldness itself.

Until now. Here, Julie Dickson, owner of New York’s Fox & Boy salon (and star of other great hair how-tos, including the perfect messy side bun and cutting your own bangs) demystifies the whole process, from which brushes and hair dryers yield the best results to the all-important “how to make the back of my head look good when I can’t see it” dilemma. We did what she told us, and the results are pretty enchanting. If we do say so ourselves.
