Blowouts and updos get a new lease on life thanks to dry shampoos and stylers, which wick away oil and deliver an extra oomph to strands. Miguelina Mejia, national artistic educator for InStyle Salons inside JCPenney, suggests applying dry shampoo at the scalp on air-dried hair, then using a round brush for a blowout. “This gives way more volume and lift without needing a hot tool,” she says. Below, we’ve rounded up a few superstars.
