Important Sidenote: When it comes to trying out any hairstyle, it is always a good idea to start off with well-hydrated moisturized hair. This can always ensure that you receive the best results ever.
Although some hairstyles can turn into a #hairfail for many of us, we’ve all had those bad days, I know I definitely have, heck even some our favorite “flawless” Vloggers have had their days, it may not always be because of your skills. It can also be due to the state of your hair at that moment. So baby those strands, it’s super important if you want to have healthy, happy hair.
Important Sidenote #2: This post features vloggers that have all have different hair textures, density’s, strand sizes, lengths, etc., so results can vary based on your individual hairtype. But each and every one of these hairstyles can be achieved on any and everybody!

The Heatless Blowout
In this tutorial, lovely YouTuber The Gabe Fix, shows us how she achieves a voluminous, fluffy Blowout without the use of a blow dryer*.
Items Used To Achieve This Hairstyle
Medium to Large Hair Clips- To keep hair in easy to work with sections
Wide Tooth Comb*- To “blow out” your hair
Hair Length Needed to Achieve This Style
This hair style can be achieved on any length of hair as long as your hair is stretched beforehand. Now, if you prefer it, you do not necessarily need to have pre-stretched hair to achieve this hairstyle, but stretching you hair can give you more desirable results that can closely resemble a heat- based blowout.
In the video, The Gabe Fix uses an old Twist Out as her foundation for her Blowout, however, you can stretch your hair through other methods, such as Bantu Knots, Braids, African Threading, etc.
