If you love the volume of a professional blowout, but you can’t seem to work your way around the same technique at home, there’s a simple styling solution that’s about to make your life a whole lot easier! Juggling a hot blow dryer in one hand and a large bristle brush in the other isn’t exactly the easiest or quickest way to start your day! Cut your hairstyling routine in half, all while achieving the big, flowy locks you’ve always dreamed of. What’s this hair marvel you ask? Why the good ol’ hot air brush, of course!

A hot air brush is a rotating style tool that is used to create polished volume, full waves, or bouncy curls by drying and styling hair simultaneously. With a process that only takes about 10-15 minutes, a hot air brush can give you salon-like results without the effort, time or cost! You can find one at just about any big brand store, online or at a beauty supply shop!

Want the look?
Who wouldn’t!? All you need to do is apply a volume-building product like L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Volume Filler Densifying Gelee to dampen hair and comb through to detangle. Then use the hot air brush to style hair in sections and viola — bouncy, happy hair!

Once you’ve dried and styled each section, set your at-home blowout with a brushable hold hairspray like L’Oréal Advanced Haircare LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray. Don’t be surprised if all your friends ask what your secret is!
