This week I will demonstrate how to get a quick blow out done for those of you who have a full head of curls and little time to style. Now for a little more instruction: Notice that we used a round brush that was wide, this give you a faster straightening time and less wave. When blowing out use a good cocktail of a straightening balm, leave in conditioner and shine serum. I used "straighten up" and "shine luxe" from my be Clarked line. The great thing about these two products is that they offer leave in conditioner, straightening power, color protection and heat protection and protect against free radicals all day. How to get a Perfect Finishing Look: Now that you have a great new blow out! Try a quick updo to transition from the office to an evening out.
Welcome to the official "the Clark Russell" blog, where weekly I will dedicate some time to making it over, making it up and keeping it real.
