The key to a Dominican Blowout is having the right tools:

  1. Magnetic Rollers: Make sure to inform your stylist if you would like your hair to be rolled.
  2. A round brush and/or  denman boar bristle brush.
  3. A blow dryer with a nozzle at the end. The concentration nozzle helps to direct the heat.The hair should be 80% dry before applying a blow dryer to the hair.The heat from the blow dryer “opens the cuticle and allows a style to be formed”.  Finishing a section with a blast of cool/cold air from the blow dryer will help to close the newly created texture or lock in the straightness of the section.   The quality of your blowdryer makes the difference between a blowout  and a dominincan blowout. Directing the air flow “down the hair shaft” is key
  4. Products- Quality products are very important such as Pureology,

Properly blow drying hair can add shine and smooth frizz, but only if it is done the right way with the correct styling tools and products. Improper blow drying can aggravate the problem and make hair brittle, dry, and even more unmanageable. The best way to blow dry hair is to use an ionic dryer. Ionic blow dryers add ions into the hair to smooth it and add shine, whereas traditional blow dryers fry the hair and make it look dull and lifeless. Never point the end of the blow dryer up into hair from the bottom, as this will split hair follicles and aggravate frizzy hair.

The best way to get completely frizz-free hair is to use a flat iron to minimize any remaining troublesome frizz. High-quality flat irons are ceramic or ionic so they don’t burn your hair and they infuse more ions to create a shinier look.

Our prices for Blowouts are based on our experience, tools, education, time, and products used.
