Achieving a round brush blowout: Steps, styling tips, and recommendations from Laifen

In this article

While we recognize there are numerous ways to achieve a blowout, we believe you need two essential styling items:

  1. A high-quality round brush with the correct barrel size for your hair type.

  2. An ionic hair dryer with adjustable heat settings.

If you have the best equipment, achieving a salon-grade blowout at home couldn't be easier. In this article, we explain how to choose a round brush for your blowout and recommend the best hair dryer. We also reveal the steps to follow for a perfect blowout, and offer our expert styling tips to help you achieve a look you can be proud of.

The perfect round brush blowout - what's the best brush?

Choosing the best round brush for a blowout depends on what you're hoping to achieve. For instance, if you want to create tight waves on short hair, an extra small barrel is the ideal round brush to go for.

In contrast, if you want loose, voluminous waves for longer hair, a much bigger barrel is required. As for material, go for a ceramic brush for long straight hair, and consider a boar bristle round brush if you have curly hair.

As you can see, there are a few nuances to choosing the best round brush, but considering your hair type and styling preferences will help you make the right decision. With this in mind, let's examine the steps required to achieve the perfect blowout with your chosen round brush.

How to do a blowout with a round brush: Step by step

Learn how to blow out your hair with a round brush.

Step 1. Wash your hair

The first step is simple. Wash your hair with shampoo and let it air dry. Alternatively, towel dry it with a microfiber towel so it's not soaking wet.

Step 2. Apply heat protectant (optional)

If you have thin hair, you can apply a heat protectant before blow-drying it. This can help to prevent your hair and scalp from drying out, but it's not necessary for people with thicker hair.

Step 3. Start blow-drying your hair

Using the Laifen Swift Special on its low or medium heat setting, begin blow drying your hair. Start with the roots and use your round brush, rolling it down to the ends with the heat blowing away.

Step 4. Angle the dryer

As you continue drying your hair and you reach the ends, angle the dryer in different ways and slightly change the way you hold the brush. This will help you to thoroughly dry your hair without focusing on one specific location.

Step 5. Don't rush the process

One of the biggest mistakes people make when blow drying their hair is rushing, often by wrapping sections that are too big around the brush. Instead, take your time, focusing on small segments and working the dryer at different angles. This will result in a much more polished, sleek blow dry.

Step 6. Add styling product (optional)

The final step is to add a styling product, such as hairspray. This is an optional step, as you should be able to achieve a voluminous, bouncy blowout with Laifen Swift Special without applying any hairspray.

How to give yourself a blowout with a round brush: Essential styling tips

To achieve a professional-grade blowout at home, here are some essential styling tips courtesy of Laifen's expert stylists:

  • Use a quality dryer: The hairdryer you use is just as important as the brush. Laifen Swift Special is the perfect dryer for achieving a blowout. It has adjustable heat settings and ionic technology to prevent frizz. It also protects your hair from heat damage.

  • Don't use hot air: We recommend adjusting your heat setting to low or medium when achieving a blowout to prevent your hair from drying out. If you have thin hair, use a heat protectant as an extra layer of protection.

  • Buy more than one round brush: You can invest in numerous round brushes to help achieve different styles. For instance, having a small and large barrel brush will help you style your hair with different waves.

  • Towel dry your hair before blow drying it: We recommend removing the excess water from your hair before blow drying it, as you should never start a blow dry with excessively wet hair. Use a microfiber towel to remove water from your hair before using a blow dryer.

How to do a blowout without a round brush?

At Laifen, we believe the best route to a stunning blowout is a round brush and ionic hair dryer combo. But if you don't have a round brush, you can use a curling iron to achieve long, voluminous waves.

Just be mindful that a curling iron can cause damage to your hair when overused, so consider the impact it has on your hair before using this method.

Final words

Learning how to blow out hair with a round brush will help you achieve a salon-grade blowout from the comfort of your own home. Provided you buy the correct barrel-sized round brush for your hair type and style, the process is easy, as illustrated by the steps above.

You should also use a high-quality ionic hair dryer like Laifen Swift Special to prevent your hair from drying out and to ensure your blowout is frizz-free and flowing.
