- Taking your brush, gently brush over the hair to make sure it’s smooth.
- We are sectioning the hair off in three total sections, so put 2/3 of your hair up, leaving just 1/3 out to work with.
- Take one section of the hair, maybe 1-2″ wide, spray Queen For A Day (or lightly spritz with water or light holding hairspray) on the roots
- Starting at the top of the hair, take your round brush and pull the hair down, smoothing out any kinks or frizz.
- Repeat with remainder of hair in this layer.
- Taking down the 2/3 of hair, repeat steps 4 + 5 on the entire layer. Only doing the pieces of hair that need to be smoothed. Remember, we are just trying to add back in any volume that was lost overnight or smooth over any frizz.
- Taking down the last 1/3 of hair, take the front pieces of your hair and round brush them away from your face.
- Fluff hair
- Round brush any pieces that need to be redone
- If you are on day 2 or 3 of your blowout and the top is looking dirty, do some light teasing with dry shampoo.
- Hairpsray, hairspray, hairspray!
P.s. my updated color comes courtesy of the insanely talented Giancarlo at Serge Normant here in Manhattan. If you’re ever in the city, you 10000% need to go to him. Tell him Elizabeth sent you for the best color of your life.
Next week, I’m doing a full tutorial on how to blow dry your hair when it’s wet, so if you aren’t able to get the round brushing technique down just yet, just take a regular brush and blow dry upwards into the root.
Have a blow dry to freshen up? Take a picture and post it to our facebook wall. It’s been so fun seeing you all interpret this on your own beautiful hair, so I made an album dedicated just to your creations- come see.
