Do you love the way your hair looks after stepping out of the salon? If so, you're not alone.

  • Although you don't have the height or angle your stylist does when he or she blow dries your hair, ask him or her to give you some pointers, or even a lesson, so you can achieve the same look at home
  • Tell your stylist that you want your blow dry to last for a few days and ask he or she to use minimal or no product in your hair to prevent it from getting greasy
  • Even if you want your hair to be straight as an arrow, stay away from the flat iron unless you have extremely curly hair
  • The iron, mixed with your hair's natural oils will make your hair flat within a day or two so stick with a regular blowout so your hair will have body
  • Stay away from moisture as your hair will begin to frizz or curl if it gets wet or damp
  • Use a shower cap when you shower
  • If you want to keep your hair out of your face, use a clip or barrette versus a rubber band to avoid making a dent in your hair
  • If your hair gets oily and you aren't ready to lose your salon look just yet, opt for dry shampoo to touch up your roots and add body
  • If you sweat in your sleep, pin your hair away from your neck, but in a clip, remember

Hopefully with practice, you can master the salon technique at home, but until then, I hope you find these tips helpful. As always, if I have missed anything, please feel free to comment below.
