Watch this video and learn a no-fail technique for how to blow-dry your hair like a professional hairstylist.

Volume blow-dry at home

There's just something about a salon blowout that makes it the ultimate of all possible beauty services. It makes your hair silky-smooth, gloriously bouncy and most of all, voluminous. And it lasts for days

Who doesn't dream of having that kind of Excellent Hair Day, every day?

As a fine, flat-haired person, I sure do! So I enlisted the help of my own hairstylist, Tony Chaar, to create the definitive guide to a high-volume blow-dry at home. (After all, who better than a top celebrity hairstylist to show us EXACTLY how it's done?)

In this tutorial video, you'll learn the importance of prepping your hair with the right products—we used the John Frieda® Luxurious Volume line—as well as a no-fail, step-by-step technique for drying and finishing the hair. 

The Skincare Edit Recommends

You guys know how NON-voluminous my hair usually is. I was amazed at this transformation! And I don't even have layers—if you do, you'll get even more dramatic results. This blow-dry technique lasts me a full three days, which is unheard of in my world.

Hopefully you learned a thing or two here—I know I did! 

Remember, if you want to achieve lift and bounce in your hair, then you MUST get the blow-dry right, otherwise you're squandering your volumizing potential. With Tony's technique, a little practice and products like the John Frieda® Luxurious Volume line, you'll be well on your way to bigger, better hair days!
