Equip Yourself: The Real Transformers

So, you’ve decided to put on your adventure hat and transition from a humble haircut indulger to a thriving home-cooked salon boss, huh? Welcome aboard! And don’t worry, we’ll start you off with the most accessible part – equipment.

Selecting the perfect blow dryer can seem like searching for the Holy Grail, especially when you have more options than a Netflix ‘recommended for you’ list. But remember, we’re less concerned about the glitz here and more about efficiency and hair type. Rule number one- the higher the wattage, the quicker the fry…oops, the quicker the dry! (In our defense, ‘fry’ just rhymed better here.)

If you share a love affair with long, thick hair, a high-wattage hairdryer, say around 1800 to 2000 watts, is your knight in shining armor. But if your hair is begging for mercy from dryness or damage, go easy peasy with 1400 watts. The golden rule here is – don’t let your hair fall ‘victim’ to your watt measures!

Now, let’s grab that hairy problem by the brush. Round or paddle, paddle or round, it’s like trying to decide between pizza and burgers, right? But guess what? Your hair type gets to play referee here. If you fancy voluminous locks with a bit of curly charm at the end, play ring-a-ring-a-roses with a round brush. However, if it’s a smooth, flat lay you seek, swing by the paddle side of life.

So, there we have it, folks! Remember, the only ‘heat’ we’re seeking here is with our styling tools, not from a hair-related meltdown.

Prepping Your Hair: You Are What You Eat

You never thought your head could hold something more than your brain, right? Oh, what joy it is to tell you you can cook up a severe storm with that head of yours. Let’s dive into the utensils you’ll need.

First, the superstar of the kitchen: a towel. What? You thought we were making a soufflé here? This towel embarks on a daunting journey from your scalp to the tip of your hair, courageously wicking off water molecules. Drenched hair is as malleable as a sumo wrestler trying to perform gymnastics. Make sure to give your hair a good towel dry hustle. But remember, it’s not wring-the-life-out-of-your-towels kind of hustle. Be gentle, your hair has feelings too!

Next, it’s the conditioner’s cue to make an entrance. It’s like the unsung background vocalist that truly brings out the melody. Slather it on your damp hair and let it sit. You’ll have enough time to flatter yourself in the mirror. When your hair basks in the conditioner’s nourishment, it becomes lusciously cooperative. It’s like life without taxes; everything gets easier.

But wait! Before you jump with your blow-dryer, there is one last prep step.

The heat protectant. Yes, it sounds like some spy tool. But alas, we’re not doing espionage here. It’s more like the sunscreen for your hair. Like you wouldn’t bask in the sun without lathering on SPF, you shouldn’t blow dry without a heat protectant. It’s literally like throwing a liquid shield around each strand. Now, who doesn’t like to be a superhero?

Ah, we’re done with prepping. It feels like the first half of a cooking show where the host keeps chopping veggies. You can’t enjoy the feast without cleaning and peeling your veggies. So, let’s continue to the next segment, where we will unleash the power of that blow dryer. Stay tuned, beautiful!

Sectioning and Drying: Not a WWII Operation

Moving on from our earlier discussion about prepping, let’s dive straight into warfare! Err, I meant hair warfare. Please unclench your fists; we’re not going to war.

“Divide and Conquer” – a term pretty famous in the conquering world, and now will be your go-to mantra while grappling with your seemingly uncontrollable hair. Yes, we’re talking about the all-important step of sectioning. The neatness of your blowout is directly proportional to how well you’ve sectioned your hair. Picture this: A Da Vinci masterpiece vs. a toddler’s scribble – that’s how much difference sectioning makes!

Soon after, we wield the ‘sword,’ the blow dryer. If a leaf blower has ever attacked you, you know what wielding your blow dryer wrong feels like. The trick is to aim the nozzle downwards along the hair shaft. It’s no rocket science, just pure physics (as if that’s any more comforting).

Now, curling with a round brush… Yes, it sounds like wrestling with an octopus, but with a pinch of patience, a knock of sense, and a dash of tactics, it’s doable! While brushing, get the round brush around your hair and move it along while directing hot air at it with your sword; sorry, blow dryer!

We’re not suggesting you complete these tasks while balancing on a tightrope over a pool of sharks, but they require finesse. Don’t worry, though; it gets better after the 43rd try! After all, who said looking like a Hollywood Diva is a bed of roses?!

Mastering The Final Touch: Top Secret Mission

Ah, the final touches – the cherry on top of your DIY salon-quality blowout cake. Let’s dive into the mysterious world of cooling shots and styling – or is it just us trying to sound fancy? You be the judge!

First, you might wonder When one uses this mythical cooling shot. Well, dear reader, it’s not as mysterious as it sounds. When you’re done wielding your blow dryer like a pro and styling your tresses perfectly, it’s time to seal the deal. Hit that cooling button on your dryer and gently blow it on your hairdo. Why? It locks in the style and smooths down those cuticles. Have you always dreamed of runway-ready hair? Now’s your chance!

Next up, the daunting question: Is styling necessary? Well, it’s like asking if cheese on pizza is needed. Trust us, it is – at least in the hair world. Styling your hair after a blowout adds oomph, and everyone can use more oomph. Oomph makes all the difference between turning heads and blending into the crowd.

Fear not; styling doesn’t require a PhD in hairstyling. It can range from simple hair accessories to using hair products like serums, sprays, or creams. Remember, your hair is begging for attention, and styling is the secret recipe to unlock its full potential. Listen to your hair, my friend.

So there you have it – the top-secret mission is complete with cooling shots and styling. Your hairdo is about to wreak havoc on the summer scene. Brace yourselves, folks, for the entrance of the year!

Common Mistakes: Warnings From the Future

Ah, rookie hair-blowout mistakes, the little devils at every turn, covertly destroying the masterpiece you’re trying to coiffe on your head. And, oh boy, do we have a few stinkers on the list!

First up, the wild child of the lot uses the highest heat setting. Because, of course, what could be better than the aromatic blend of freshly burnt hair in the morning, right? Wrong! The highest setting is a thug, always ready to sucker punch your delicate locks into a dry, damaged pulp. You might as well Beethoven through ‘Hair Sonata, No.5 in F major’, with charred strands as your piano!

The next fiend on the list is rubbing your hair with a towel. The universal anthem of “I am about to damage my hair” in the world of hairstyling unapologetically. It’s like conducting an orchestra – instead of making harmonious, melodic tunes, you invite a symphony of split ends and frizz. Epic performance.

Last, and possibly the most hair-icious, is ignoring sectioning. Because who doesn’t love the wild, untamed bird’s nest? Look at that summer party, eh? Sectioning your hair isn’t a dastardly plot to waste your time; it’s a domesticated way to ensure your hair goes from unruly rebel to desirable diva.

And lo and behold! You’ve been warned – armed with the knowledge of things to steer clear of. Up next is your one-way ticket to Blow-dry Bordello. Get ready!


So, here we are at the grand finale! After journeying through the land of hair-dressing saga, descending into unknown territories of blow dryers and brushes, we have finally reached the point where fear and dread of a DIY blowout are stories of the past! Phew, that was some hard work there, but remember, heroes aren’t born; they are blow-dried!

To those who thought this would be a horror story, let’s say Twist! Your Home Salon is officially open, and happy hour has just begun. And it’s always happy hour in this joint! No more hair-raising tales from the under-the-dryer crypt. Blow-drying at home no longer has to be as terrifying as your fifth-grade maths test. It’s more like a seventh-grade science experiment now. (Minus the exploded test tubes and questionable smells, of course).

Getting a perfect blowout at home is about to become as routine as your morning selfie — just a lot less duck-face-involved. You’ll rule your world with a round brush and a blow dryer, slaying one stunning summer event at a time (while glamorously avoiding burnt ends!). What’s that I see on the horizon? Oh yes, it’s…Confidence is incoming!

Congrats, self-styler! You have tackled those daunting tangles, navigated through the noisy nozzles, and created a masterpiece as dazzling as your spirit. Let’s toast (no, that won’t be the burning smell anymore!) to emancipation from salon dependency. And remember, when you’re wielding that blow dryer tomorrow morning, give you more power (and less heat, please!). After all, every head of hair is a kingdom, and now, you’re the monarch who rules it all with one hell of a blowout!
