From Curl Queen to Smooth Operator

Calling all curly girls that want a smooth as silk, bouncy, bombshell blowout. Molly Getz (@mollygetz), a Sam Villa ambassador, Redken artist, and stylist at Soto Signature Salon & Spa, breaks down her method that requires both a paddle and an oval brush.

“Make sure to use enough heat for good smoothing and redirecting., and always allow the hair to cool—that’s what gives a blowout longevity,” says Getz. 

  • Apply Redken’s All Soft Moisture Restore Leave-In for smoothness and Thermal Spray 22 for protection. 
  • Use a Sam Villa Professional Light Ionic Blow Dryer and Signature Series Paddle Brush to wrap dry hair, confusing the roots and adding volume. 
  • At the crown, wrap hair in the cardinal direction to maximize volume. 
  • Once hair is almost dry, switch to a Sam Villa Signature Series Oval Round Brush, which provides a lot of tension for really smoothing hair out. 
  • Point the nozzle of the dryer downward and hold the brush in a diagonal position to create a slight wave and bend in the hair. 
  • Turn the brush and rotate it away from the head, down each section to add additional bend. 
  • Once at the center-back of the head, change directions and rotate the brush/hair away from the face. 
  • At the crown section, lift hair with the oval brush to create on-base curls and pull hair in the opposite direction that it falls.  
  • Rake fingers through to break up waves. 

“This blowout will last for days and days … and it’s frizz-free and really full and shiny,” says Getz.
