“A good blowout should last for days," says Webb. "I wouldn’t apply any styling products before working out and I would be sure to use a soft elastic hair tie that won’t crimp your hair.” The Twistband keeps strands secure and smooth.
Hair should be completely off the face and neck during a workout. “I put my hair up in a bit of a bun (we like to call it an Uptini–a low or high bun, chignon, or french twist) versus a ponytail to keep my blowout away from heat and sweat.”
Webb recommends using good old fashioned bobby pins to help secure smaller pieces around the face and any loose ends. “It depends on the look you want, but bobby pins are magical—you need so few to get a lot of hair up. Braids are also big this year and can be fun for a chic, bohemian look especially when exercising.”
“A few days after a blowout, you can keep those waves and curls lasting by touching up with a curling iron to hide dirty hair and mask frizz. Also, add some type of texture spray throughout hair for a beachy, tousled look.”
Webb stresses the importance of cooling off before you take your hair down. She likes to touch up hair with a blowdryer and brush and re-blow the front pieces and nape of the neck to dry up any moisture. “Once hair is completely dry, use a dry shampoo on the root area to absorb oil and add body to hair between washes. Dry shampoo is a great way to get the most bang (and bounce) out of your blowout.”
