Blow by Blow: Learn How to Get a Sleek, Shiny 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 hair styling 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.

Sleek, straight, run-your-fingers-through-it kind of hair is something women try to achieve day after day, yet we still somehow manage to fall just short. Next up in our blowout series, we wanted to concentrate on how to get this perfectly sleek, straight hair. Read on below or watch the timelapse video above to learn the tips and tricks for smooth, beautiful hair from hair expert Amanda Daly.

Step 1: To protect your hair from heat damage and improve drying time, spray Fekkai Blowout Primer all over damp hair.

Step 2: Pre-dry your hair starting at the roots. Keep the blow dryer above your hair to control frizz and reduce volume. For curly or wavy hair, use the Fekkai Blowout Sealing Serum  to aid in the straightening process.

Step 3: To finish up the drying process, smooth out your locks with a round brush or flat brush (whichever you prefer).

Step 4: To tame frizz and flyaways, apply the lightweight Blowout Sealing Serum – rub between palms and then press onto ends. For an even sleeker look, take a flat iron to the top layer of hair,  just on the ends.

Step 5: Use Fekkai’s Blowout Hair Refresher on Day 2 (and beyond) to extend the life of your blowout. Apply it concentrating on the roots of the hair.

And there you have it, a sleek, long-lasting blowout look that will be sure to have heads turning.
