How To Give Your Mom A Mother’s Day Blowout

Between drive-by birthdays and zoom tequila shots on Cinco de Mayo, it can feel as if our current circumstances have rendered holidays somewhat meaningless. But, there’s one celebration that we can’t throw to the wayside, or even celebrate in a mediocre way. That day is, of course, Mother’s Day.

There’s only so much we can do to make this day special for our moms this year. Mother’s Days have often consisted of brunches and spa days, and those are still somewhat plausible even in quarantine! One awesome thing you can do for your mom this year is give her a professional blowout. It’ll make your mom feel fantastic during a time in which self-care has been chilling on the sidelines. And, it’s not as hard as you might think it is! We’ve broken down a step-by-step guide detailing how to give your mother a perfect blowout on her special day. 

Here’s what you’ll need:


First, you’ll need to ask your mom to hop in the shower, or at least get her hair wet. That is where the perfect blowout begins. It’s like a fresh canvas for you to eventually style! Let her know that her hair will look best if she uses conditioner during her shower.

When she hops out, wrap a towel around your mother’s head to absorb some of the initial moisture. Then, before grabbing the dryer, make sure to get ahold of some heat protectant to protect her luscious locks from the dryer’s heat. Next, you can spritz a dime-sized amount of volumizer into your hands and massage it through her strands. Make sure to massage her scalp gently as you apply the volumizer. This adds body to the roots upon styling, and also allows for your mom to feel like she’s getting the royal treatment!

Next, it’s time to start blow drying. Initially, you can begin drying her hair as you normally would. Use your hands to lightly assist the dryer, gently lifting and tossing her hair, and go ahead and dry without a nozzle. If your mom has thicker hair, dry her hair on a hotter heat setting. Continue to carefully dry the hair until it is about 50-70% dry. This will cut the time of your actual blowout styling in half.

Once her hair is damp, brush it through ones to make sure there are no tangles. The best brush to do this with is an Unbrush. This is primarily for your mother’s comfort. Next, you can begin to style it for her. Before reaching for the round brush, you are going to want to separate your mom's hair into sections. Start at the crown and divide it into three sections. There will be one in the middle and two on either side. Depending on how thick your mother’s hair is, you will likely have two sets of three sections, or three sets of three sections. Each set needs to contain 1-2” of hair. Either way, once your hair sectioned off, you can grab your round brush.

Then, place the nozzle onto your dryer for precision. Beginning at the bottom and working your way to the top, begin to dry the hair while using the round brush, section by section removing the clips as you go. Again, you’ll want to start with the hair at the base of the neck and work your way up to the crown. When styling with the round brush, make sure the brush sits in your dominant hand and the dryer stays in the other. With each section, you’ll want to wind it around the brush until it feels taught. Gently allow the brush to move up the hair so that it can continue to gain volume. This is where previously applying a volumizer is going to prove to be a great help. Repeat this step until all the sections are dry.

Once dry and styled, use your fingers to gently shake the hair away from the scalp. Once shaken, you can spritz a very loose and light layer of spray to keep it in place for the day. Don’t spray too much hairspray, just enough for your mother’s hair to maintain the perfect blowout shape that you just gave to her!

When you’ve finished giving the amazing blowout to your mother and she’s feeling glam, top it off with a nice mimosa. Cheers to a job well done at acing the blowout! And, as a celebration to your mom for being the best.
