My name is Maria, and I'm a beauty writer who can't give herself a blowout. It's true. No matter how many tutorials I read (or write), it's impossible for me to blowdry my own hair. I never know the product cocktail to use or which brush to wield.
Thankfully, the guardian angels at Bumble and bumble are ready to help those like moi. The brand has just released its first complete blowdry collection, which helps anyone with styling issues master their mane. They offer products for every type, texture, and styling preference; and brushes that accompany whatever look you're going for. Need high volume on your color-damaged strands? Reach for a round brush and Bumble and bumble Repair Blow Dry. Want to blow your curls straight? Grab your flat brush and Straight Blow Dry. You can mix and match your way to any 'do.
Bumble also does us a serious solid with a handy flow chart (which you can see for yourself in just a few pages). Just match your hair type to the style you want, and you're golden, baby. Now, I've got to go do some push-ups to get the arm strength to hold my blowdryer for a half hour. Such is life.
This cream lets you give your straightener a break. Perfect for curly, coarse hair that wants to go sleek.
If your hair is damaged or dry, this tube's for you. It doubles up on the heat protectant, so you can style without worry.
It fights frizz, protects against heat damage, and you can use it on fine or thick hair. Talk about an overachiever.
Not into a high-volume blowdry? Reach for this brush.
Bumble and bumble Flat Brush, $95, available at Bumble and bumble.
Your big blowout is one brush away.
