The best way to extend your blowout is to start by getting a great one. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, we offer a customized and luxurious blowout experience that will last days after your initial appointment.
Every exceptional blowout starts with a consultation with your stylist—determining your hair type helps our stylists better achieve your preferred style and allows products used to be tailored to your hair’s needs, texture and integrity. We want to hear all the information straight from the expert (after all, no one knows your hair better than you do). Understanding how your chosen style will wear on your hair’s texture throughout the following days is essential in choosing the best, long-lasting blowout style. For example, starting with voluminous curls on day one will provide you with loose curls on day two and three.
Blowouts at Vent Blow Dry Bar start with a deep cleansing wash to remove build up of product or oil that weigh down the hair. A great style needs a clean slate in order to sufficiently hold and stay fresh for as long as possible. With our relaxing scalp massage and nourishing Moroccanoil and AG Hair shampoos and conditioners, your hair is stripped of excess product leaving you with soft, manageable hair. By drying your hair with the revolutionary Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, our stylists are able to create a smooth canvas on which to style. In creating a long-lasting style, it is absolutely necessary to have the hair completely dry and smooth. Working with even slightly damp hair can risk an unpolished frizzy look. Using the proper styling techniques and tools for your hair type is also an essential part of achieving your enduring, desired style.
Although proper technique in your initial appointment should allow your blowout (and confidence that comes along with it) to last for a few days post your appointment, there are a few at-home tricks you can utilize to ensure your style lasts.
Even though your strands feel irresistible after your blowout, resist the urge to run your fingers them! Avoid touching your hair in the days following your blowout. Each time you do, the natural oils from your skin transfer to your hair causing strands to become limp and your style to appear greasy. Not to mention, repeated touching can make your beautiful curls to loosen. Look but don’t touch!
Sleeping always seems to be the make or break of your blowout’s duration. When you get home for the night (especially if you have longer hair), try to keep your hair in a loose bun on the top of your head to avoid curls from falling and oils from your neck transferring to your hair. The best way to ensure your hair last through the night is switching to a silk or satin pillowcase. Rougher fabrics tend to create friction while you’re sleeping that can ruin your hair’s body and volume leaving you with messy, bedhead.
On day three or four, freshen your hair with Moroccanoil dry shampoo. With both dark and light tone options, the rice starch in this product soaks up any oil and grease accumulating at the roots and leaves a beautiful, fresh scent. Leaving no dull residue, the oil-absorbing formula also acts as UV protector ensuring your hair stays as strong as it is beautiful. Simply spray the product approximately four inches from the head and tousle the hair in an upward motion to allow the dry shampoo to set while giving it a bit of new volume. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, we carry a variety of Moroccanoil products for your at-home use, Moroccanoil dry shampoo being among the most popular.
If your hair is prone to grease or you’ve gone to the gym a lot after your blowout, coming in for a quick $10 braid is a great way to extend your blowout and reduce your washes. Keeping hair washes to a minimum is beneficial to your hair’s overall health—the oils in your scalp naturally protect the hair and create softer, shinier strands. With time, your hair’s natural oils will become use to your sparse washing schedule and strands become less prone to breakage.
