Quick Tips On How To Blow-Dry Your Hair Like A Pro

Nothing beats that salon fresh feeling after a professional blow dry – but most of us struggle to achieve the same amazing look at home. There isn’t some top-secret formula us hairdressers use to give you that fabulous blow dry. But there are special products and tools that we are ready to spill – so you too can think like a pro, act like a pro and BE the pro!

  • Choose the right tools

All hairdryers do the same old thing – blow out hot air – right? WRONG! It is important to start by choosing the right blow dryer. This is where you must think like a pro and only choose the best; otherwise the next few steps will be irrelevant. Now to get down to business, what is this ‘right’ hair dryer we keep banging on about? Well, it’s none other than the ghd air pink blush hairdryer. A purchase with a purpose, this limited edition product supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The professional hairdryer is the perfect fusion for ghd design and salon power, delivering a salon finish 2x faster. Delivering high-pressure airflow for super-fast drying, the dryer will reduce frizz and those annoying little flyaways for that smooth, sleek salon-fresh feeling! Suitable for absolutely any hair type, the ghd air is one of our favourites here at Heading Out which will also give you the gorgeous salon blow-dry in the comfort of your own home.


  • Be one with the brush

We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your fingertips do not suffice as a hairbrush when blow-drying (or brushing for that matter!). Don’t skimp on quality when it comes to technique. Your brush plays a major role during the process and for that salon fresh end result. What we like to use (and recommend you do as well) is the Denman Paddle Brushes – and for good reason too. The  bristles provide the perfect tool that can be used on any hair length or type. With a truly professional finish, the bristles in this paddle brush are nestled deep in a high quality cushion – ideal for creating beautiful blow-dries and up-do’s.

  • Is your hair ready? (because it should be)

You want to either air or towel dry your hair slightly before applying any products – otherwise they’ll slip right out. Your blow dryer is hot… very hot! And if your hair isn’t prepped properly, the heat can be very damaging to your hair and scalp. So be raring and ready with the Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Soft Glam Prime Prep Spray – your go to for pre blow-dry prep. The multi-talented spray detangles, provides a non-static foundation, protects from brushing, blow-dry heat and UV light, and most importantly – prepares your hair for subsequent styling products and treatment.

  • Signed, sealed and delivered…

The final finishing touches make all the difference when getting that amazing salon feeling. The Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Sparkler Shine Spray promises to leave your finished blow-dry shiny, conditioned and fabulous. Without weighing down your look, the light finish gives you a high gloss sparkle – and your style just isn’t complete without it. This is Caterina Di Biase’s (owner of Heading Out) product of the week!
