Blowouts: Hot Air with a Purpose

Sure, you can blow-dry your hair at home, but it likely won’t be quite the same as a salon blowout.

There’s something like old-time alchemy going on every time someone gets a blowout. Take a couple of elemental ingredients—wind and heat—combine them with a professional’s trained hand and strong wrist, and you end up with something precious: movie-star hair. The actual process is simple: the stylist washes the hair, then blow-dries it in small sections to the client’s specifications, often using a round brush to create smooth volume. The result might be straight, wavy, or purposely tousled, and it can be such a look changer that some women refrain from washing their hair for days afterward to maintain the glamour. Many people find the service so valuable they return to the salon for it between haircuts, sometimes several times a week.

Choose from Three Options

  • $21 for one blowout ($35 value)
  • $55 for three blowouts ($105 value)
  • $85 for five blowouts ($175 value)

Hair Growth: It’s Just a Phase

Hair varies in thickness and length across our body, from the head’s massive jungle to the knuckles’ tiny brambles. But regardless of where it is, each strand of hair cycles through three phases: anagen, also known as the active growth phase; catagen, or transitional phase; and telogen, or resting phase. During the growth phase, a new hair shaft sprouts from a follicle as its cells rapidly divide and grow upward, forming tightly packed bundles rich with keratin protein. Next, the transition phase kicks in for about two to three weeks, during which growth stops and the outer root sheath shrinks, anchoring the hair to the follicle as it enters the final phase. At that point, the follicle lies dormant until the hair is shed and the cycle begins again.

Not all hair grows at the same rate. On the scalp, hair grows about 6 inches per year, with each strand spending about two to six years in the active phase. Meanwhile, hair on the arms, legs, eyelids, and eyebrows actively grows for a much shorter period—only about 30–45 days—and spends more time in the resting phase, which is why waxing these areas helps curb unwanted hair growth. Humans need removal methods such as waxing because we don’t shed our hair all at once like other mammals; our hair-growth cycles are random and staggered, whereas other animals’ cycles are mostly synchronized.
