Have you experienced your roots growing out, split ends appearing and the desperate need of a refresh button on your hair? If that’s the case, you’re not alone. Frequent customers who went to the salon every six weeks haven’t gone in six months. Due to the separation from their stylists, do-it-yourself haircuts, trims, dye jobs and blowouts have become the new trend.
After quarantining from the outside for what seems like a lifetime has been uplifted, the closure and restrictions for hair salons are diminishing. But is there a sudden distrust in social interactions?
The pandemic was a time to reflect and consider what is a need and a want. The pressures of the economy and your lifestyle are colliding. Nail care, microblading, lash extensions, and most importantly hair salon appointments are essential to some who seek it as an extra energy boost. However, making an appointment at a blowout bar might not be on your budget for the month.

The popularity of an at-home blowout is spiking because achieving a blowout from your home is as simple as going in. The options are endless for blowout tools. There are tools on the higher end and others that do the same job at a cheaper price.
