Blow by Blow: Learn How to Get the Perfect Tousled Blowout

As the temperature starts to drop and we begin transitioning into fall, we’ve begun to think about shiny, freshly blown out hair. That being said, we’ve partnered up with the hairstyling experts at Frederic Fekkai along with their new blowout collection, to bring you Blow by Blow—a video series telling you how to get your favorite blowout hairstyles.

We all lust after those waves that seem to be perfectly tousled and have that “I woke up like this” flair. That’s why, as the last look up in our timelapse blowout series, we wanted to play around with a fun, tousled look. Hair expert Amanda Daly spills on the tips and products to help you achieve this effortless “bedhead” look in the video above and with her additional steps below.

Step 1: To prep your hair, use Fekkai’s Blowout Primer, which will protect your gorgeous locks from the heat. Also, apply a touch of Fekkai’s Blowout Texturizer concentrating at the root to create volume with movement.

Step 2: To add texture to your hair, use a diffuser on the blow dryer while also scrunching with your hands. To control frizz, apply Fekkai’s Blowout Sealing Serum to your ends for polish and added protection.

Step 3: With a large barrel curling iron, 1″ to 1.5″, take random large pieces and add soft bends to the mid-shaft area. Daly reminds us that, “You can experiment and alternate which way you bend the iron, to make a more natural wave.”

Step 4: To finish off this look, separate your strands with fingers. Since this look is very ‘effortless,’ Daly emphasizes that, “Less is always more with this look. When you want a tousled look, don’t be so concerned with a perfect part, go natural.” For more texture and to extend your tousled blowout on day two (and beyond), try the Fekkai Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo applying at the roots and on the crown of the head for a “lived-in” style.

There you have it! All the steps to achieve that effortless “rolled out of bed” tousled look.
