There’s a happy place between sleek, uptown blowout and second-day, Kate Moss-bedhead. We like to call it a textured blowout, a style you can wear both in the boardroom and to cocktails post-work. The best part about it? It's easy. All you need is a few key products and a single styling tool: Infiniti Pro by Conair AC Motor Blow Dryer ($39.99). Its AC Motor lasts up to 3x longer than most dryers and reduces drying time by up to 50% (less drying time equals less damage). Read on for our step-by-step how-to on achieving the look above!
Towel dry your hair—gently! Use a towel to press the water out of your ends, without rubbing, to minimize the friction that causes frizz.
Run a generous dollop of mousse through your hair, from roots to ends. Comb through.
Use ConAir’s Infiniti Pro Styler to rough dry your hair with your fingers, pointing the nozzle downward.
Run argan oil or your favorite shine serum through your hair, from the mid-lengths to the end, and twist your hair up into a bun.
Shoot the bun with heat from ConAir’s Inifinit Pro Styler; the negative ions seal the hair cuticle to reduce frizz up to 75%. Wait a beat before blasting your bun with a shot of cold air (engaging the switch on an AC motor actually gives you colder air, instead of just warm), for extra shine and wave.
Undo the bun, shake your hair out, and voila! If you want more texture, spritz your favorite surf spray on the ends. For added polish, run a bit more serum through the ends. See, we told you it was easy!
