Blowouts always look great, but the actual blowdrying process can take a really, really long time - especially if you oversleep! That said, there are a few styling hacks to help speed up your routine, giving you a quicker blowout and a few extra minutes in bed.
Use a microfiber towel
Regular cotton towels do a pretty good job of absorbing excess water, but a microfiber towel goes one step further. When you get out of the shower, wrap your hair up and leave it for a few minutes, then when you shake it all out, you'll be left with locks that are barely damp at all.
Start with the hair underneath first
To blast away most of the water, flip your head upside down and blowdry the bottom layers for a few minutes first. They tend to dry the slowest as they're buried under the rest of your hair.
Use your products wisely
One of the easiest ways to cut down on styling time is to use a heat protectant designed smooth the cuticle as it dries, leaving you with flyaway-free strands that don't require time-consuming touch-ups later on. Smoothing creams, sprays and mousses are all great for this, but you may need to experiment to see which on works best for your hair.
Skip the blowout altogether
Without a doubt, the most effective way to reduce styling time is to cut out most of the styling altogether by leaving your hair longer between washes. To revive your existing blowout on day two, spray your roots with dry shampoo to absorb excess oil and gently lift the hair, then brush it through with a boar bristle brush.
