How to tame flyaways during and after a blowout

Avoid those pesky flyaways

Nothing ruins a blowout faster than unruly flyaways. Learn how to tame them quickly and easily from Alli Webb, founder of Drybar.
Avoid those pesky flyaways

Step 1: Use a styling cream

Starting about halfway down your hair shaft, run a styling or hydrating cream through your hair down to the ends to prevent flyaways while blow drying. We love Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Serum to keep things under control.

Step 2: Blow dry downward

When blow drying your hair, point the nozzle of your blow dryer downward while brushing out your strands. Using a natural bristle brush as opposed to a synthetic one will also help keep flyaways at bay.

Step 3: Tame any flyaways

After completing your blowdry, tame any flyaways that may appear by lightly spritzing hairspray all over and running a pomade through your hair.
