HOW TO GIVE YOUR­SELF A BLOWOUT WITH­OUT CRY­ING OR SWEAT­ING (MUCH)*

Elle (Canada) - - Beauty -

1. Sec­tion your hair into four parts: down the cen­tre and across from be­hind the ears. 2. If you have bangs, dry them first; if not, start from the back. 3. Keep your shoul­ders square; don’t lift them or you’ll get tired and achy. (This is still in­evitable, but keep­ing them square will at least post­pone it.) 4. Most im­por­tant: Use a pro­fes­sional-grade blow-dryer. Th­ese are lighter and dry hair quickly. If the air com­ing out of your blow-dryer isn’t strong or hot enough, your hair will frizz and take longer to fix. It’s worth the in­vest­ment. *Tips via Am­ber Fair­lie, cre­ative direc­tor for the Manor Sa­lon.
