How to Help Your Salon Blowout Last Longer

November 15 2021


Now that you’ve gotten your Meraki blowout, you expect it to look as great as it did when you walked out of our salon. Keeping your blowout looking fresh is easy with just a little work on your end. Our stylists have put together some tips that will help your blowout last as long as possible and look fresh all week long.

On Day 1, don’t touch. When you leave our salon, your hair will look picture-perfect. Feel free to enjoy and show off your hairstyle, but don’t touch it! On the first day, if you brush it, run your fingers through it, or add additional products to it, your blowout won’t last. All of these things stimulate the production of your hair’s natural oils, causing your hair to lose its stunning shape and volume.

Sleep with a soft headband or low pony. How long your blowout lasts largely depends on how you care for it during sleep. Covering the front of your hair with a soft, loose headband, or hair wrap, will help keep any frizz and flyaways to a minimum. You can also loosely gather your hair and put it in a loose pony to keep it all together. Make sure it’s not too tight or it’ll hold a bend in the morning.

Use a comb. Gently detangle your strands with a Detangler Comb. This is especially important during the first few days of your blowout. A brush can flatten the style, causing it to become limp and dull-looking while a comb will help maintain the style and body.

Revive your style. As it gets later in the week, you may notice that your strands are starting to get a little limp. Refresh and revive your hairstyle with a Paul Mitchell Dry Shampoo. It will absorb the natural oils in your hair while cleaning, rejuvenating, and making your hair smell and look fresh. (I COULDN’T FIND A DRY SHAMPOO IN YOUR STORE) Another tip from our stylists is to use Awapuhi Wild Ginger Style Shine Spray to add shine and moisture to your hair when it’s starting to look a tad dull or starting to lose some of its volume.

Refresh the look. If you want to hold onto your blowout style for as long as possible, our Awapuhi Wild Ginger HydroMist Blow-Out Spray can help give your hairstyle new life. You can re-blow your hair with this weightless-hold spray that acts as a style amplifier while the natural awapuhi protects your hair from damage. Renew those curls, revitalize the volume, or resmooth your strands to restore that gorgeous blowout style as long as possible.

Welcome an updo. During your last couple of days, you’ll know it’s time for another blowout. But you can still use the volume, curl, or sleekness of this current blowout by using it to your advantage with a great updo. A messy bun, smooth pony, classic topknot, or any combination of updos can keep your hair looking great even longer.
