Watch: Fake a bouncy, shiny blowout without a trip to the salon

A bouncy, shiny blowout is the best part of getting your hair done, but sometimes six to eight weeks between treatments is just too long to wait. Want that hair-flipping goodness all the time? Press play to see how easy it is to get that just-left-the-salon feeling without leaving the house.

1. Wash

After washing your hair with a strengthening shampoo and conditioner (we used Bumble and bumble Bond-Building Repair range), apply Aveda Botanical Repair Strengthening Leave-In Treatment into towel-dried strands.

2. Dry

Dry off your hair in sections using the ghd Helios Professional hairdryer. Use the ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush to pull tension on the hair as you apply heat to smooth the hair shaft.

3. Style

Next, the secret to faking it? ghd MAX Wide Plate Styler. The larger plates help create those loose, bouncy waves you only get at the salon. Work in sections, curling away from the face, twisting each curl to keep the bounce.

4. Gloss

Once complete, brush out the curls and then lightly apply Living proof No frizz Vanishing Oil all over for glossy, frizz-free strands.

5. Volume

Finish with a spritz of Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to pump up the volume and give you a light hold.
