The bounce blowout is the next-level hair trend you need to know about. Grab your round brush, because in case you hadn’t heard, 2022 is the year that luxe, gravity-defying blow dries are back in full force.
The look, favored by the likes of JLo who recently wore the bounce blowout, takes the classic blow dry a step further, with supersized sculpted waves, tons of body and—you guessed it—incredible bounce.
While JLo’s hairstylist, Chris Appleton didn’t reveal the exact method he used to create her bounce blowout, Chris has previously let us in on how he creates mega voluminous bombshell curls. He uses a large round brush like a roller, winding hair around the barrel, then blasts it with a hair dryer and leaves it in place to cool for a few seconds before uncoiling it. To help lock in the shape while he makes his way around the rest of the hair, he wraps each section he’s blow-dried up with a roller and leaves it until the end where he lets the whole lot loose.
Over on TikTok where “blowout” has 582 million views users have been sharing their tips and hacks to get the most bounce possible. After getting requests to post a hair tutorial @dianashex showed how she uses a blow dryer with a detachable hair roller brush (the top section of the brush detaches and can be clipped in hair) which doubles as a round brush and a roller.
And @afnandano uses the Dyson Air Wrap with the round brush attachment to add ’90s flicks alongside next-level bounce.
Last summer we predicted blow dries would be back and quite literally bigger than ever, but it’s a trend that’s dominating 2022. “I think there will be a wave back towards longer, more styled hair,” Luke Hersheson told Glamour. After the two years we’ve just had, “we’re craving to embrace glamour,” he adds. “There’s a mood of getting dressed-up and going out,” says Luke. “We’ve seen it before with the post-depression era in the ‘20s or post-war hair in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Hair was very heightened, it was less functional.”
Basically we’re in the mood to swap lazy-girl hair for glam-girl hair and have a hairstyle that matches all those boujee plans we’re making.
