Open since 2007, Blo Blow Dry Bar recently partnered with Gwyneth Paltrow and her celebrity hairstylist, David Babaii. Babaii took the time to offer us his expert tips on how to bring the best salon blow out home every time you rock the look. Check out the first set of tips below:
Know Your Hair. "Have your stylist start with a shampoo and conditioner that is designed for your specific hair type," Babaii said. "My motto has always been that a great hair day starts with a clean canvas. If your hair is oily, you do not need a hydrating shampoo plus only condition the ends."
Beauty Sleep Prep. When you go to bed at night, Babaii says considers a silky pillow case. They allow the hair to move freely while sleeping so you can prevent flattening the volume you love.
Get Low. For those sleek straight blow outs take a scrunchie (yes, they have come back) and gently pull hair back into a low ponytail twisting the scrunchie loosely around to keep the hair in place. For longer length hair try wrapping coated bands mid-center and ends of the pony.
Humidity Fighter. "Also, a great flat iron is a must to rid your blow out of any imperfections, humidity or the side effects from a rainy day," Babaii said.
Rise & Shine. When you wake up in the morning your can freshen your scalp several ways. "For my natural beauties, create a small mixture of water and lemon juice. Next, take a cotton ball or pad moistening it and finally squeezing any left-over moisture out," the celeb stylist instructed.
"Then, gently start by cleansing the hairline followed by parting small sections and cleaning the scalp area only. This will absorb and cleanse away any access oils while giving your hair a clean fresh scent. For my busy working gals, a dry shampoo is quick and easy to use and always an option."
