After more than a year of being locked inside, you may have let some of your skills get a little rusty. However, with many mask mandates lifted and many states ‘getting back to normal,’ your clients are going to be returning and they’re going to want your usual magic. One of the most commonly requested services by any stylist or salon is a blowout. So, it is time to ensure that you have the top products and tools to give your clients exactly what they want!
Here is what you need to give your clients the perfect blowout:
Prep your client
As a stylist, you know that prep is just as important as the styling itself. Always begin with heatprotectant. This prep/primer spray is a lightweight spray that is meant to be left in the hair and protects and detangles before you begin drying. This also helps the hair absorb moisture, making for a polished-looking blowout.
Use a boar bristle brush
When you want to create a perfect blowout, your tools matter, and the brush you choose is of the utmost importance. Our boar bristle brush helps smoothly distribute the oils in the hair, which makes for a healthier look all around. The anti-static coated nylon also reduces frizz and helps you control the look. To use it, pull the hair up with this circular brush, and then hold the hair in place for about 4-5 seconds after you dry each section, which will make for a smoother, more perfect blow out every time.
Choose a dryer wisely
Obviously, if you want to create the perfect blowout, you need to have a fantastic hair dryer. This engineering marvel (a handleless hair dryer) was made for blowouts. This nano ceramic dryer allows for more precise drying because of its design, and it also reduces the drying time. The ceramic heat creates negative ions, which will give your client’s hair a softer and smoother look.
Use a styler
Some clients are fine with just the blown out look, but others want a bit more curl. When curling the locks, opt for a styler rather than a curler. It’s actually a bit better at giving that beachy summer look to your client. As a stylist, you likely know that you can use a styler as a curler by twisting the tool as you move down your client’s hair.
Offer your client a hair protecting system
Neo’Bond is a fantastic 3-step system that’s necessary in any hair salon. Neo’Bond 3 (The Hair Protector) is the only product within the system that’s available for clients to purchase. You can sell your client Neo’Bond 3 after completing the blowout. If your customer is someone who frequently gets their hair done, Neo’Bond 3 will strengthen the hair’s elasticity, protecting them from frizz or future damage.
Make more money while you style
Your education as a stylist is paramount to your overall success. Show off your skills on social media. Joining the FHI Heat Pro Commission Program allows you to incorporate FHI Heat products into your posts and tutorials for a large commission if you make sales. Using these tips as a script, you can create a tutorial on giving the perfect blowout and make some money in the process.
With the end of the extreme pandemic restrictions comes the chance to re-enter the world as we knew it before March of 2020. Give your clients the chance to feel more confident by giving them the look of a perfect blowout!
The Platform Blowout brush is an amazing product that does four jobs in one. But just like anything else, if you don’t know how to use it, you will not be able to take advantage of its plasma ionic technology and 360-degree airflow, which will create silky smooth hair that is beautifully styled using only this one tool.
