Harry Josh shares how to achieve the perfect blowout (at home)

Do you struggle with trying to create a salon-caliber blowout at home? If so, John Frieda‘s International Creative Consultant, Harry Josh has some advice — beginning with taking your time. “A perfect blowout can last for days,” says Harry. “Taking the time to do it correcting may be an extra ten minutes, but you’ll have gorgeous hair at least 24 hours. It’s not worth rushing it!”

Step One: Prep Your Hair
Take a good look at your hair type and identify its weakness: Frizz? Damage from heat styling? Lack of volume? When you get out of the shower, apply a pre-blowout product which targets that weakness. If you have frizzy hair, apply Frizz-Ease (Original Formula Hair Serum or the new Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control, if you have fine hair) to soaking wet hair to combat frizz. If your hair is damaged and

Dinner with Harry Josh + What’s NEW at John Frieda

If ever a man that could get you excited about hair… it’s Harry Josh. Hair stylist to the stars including Gweneth Paltrow, Katy Perry and Rose Bryne (he’s responsible for that amazing bob we all drooled over at the SAG Awards), Harry Josh is also the International Creative Consultant for John Frieda. And I love that! It takes someone constantly working with different hair consistencies and styles to really get to know what’s lacking in the market place and what can be improved.

So as part of a special celebratory dinner of their latest product launches, John Frieda & Harry Josh hosted an intimate dinner for myself and fellow bloggers. And without further ado, here’s what’s new at  John Frieda:

First up, Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution ($9.99):

For all of you looking for a lightweight frizz reducer but get turned off by serums that are too greasy or weigh your hair down, get excited! This rendition of their existing Frizz-Ease serum, is specifically designed for fine to medium hair.

Part lightweight serum, part smoothing elixir this shake-to-activate dual formula is specifically designed to fight frizz and leave hair light and manageable whether you style straight, wavy, or curly.

I have long, wavy (I know it doesn’t appear that way in most of my pictures since I’m always straightening it) but it’s thin. So in theory this is meant for my hair type, however I have a lot of it — I have enough hair for small village. And because of this I fall somewhere in between this product and the original. For the time being, I like the how light it is and that it goes on towel-dried hair. Although, I can already tell come that come summer, I’ll need something heavier to fight my

It’s All In The Wand!

There have been some really great, innovative products to recently come onto the market. And I attribute their design and wands to making them so effective and user friendly. Here are some of my new favorites!

1. John Frieda Full Repair Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer ($9.99) – John Frieda’s International Creative Consultant and celebrity stylist, Harry Josh presented this product at an event I attended and shared a styling tip–putting hairspray on a toothbrushes then brushing it back to tame flyaways. Although thanks to the new Touch-up Flyaway Tamer, there’s a considerably easier and more convenient way to deal with flyaways (especially for us every-day folks). With similar packaging to a mascara, you just brush away the flyaways using the tamer wand and voila, they are slicked back! It’s not sticky or heavy, easy to apply and lasts for a few hours. It’s the perfect addition to my makeup case for any quick touch-ups I need throughout the day, especially in this heat!

2. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure ($6.99) – Sally Hansen has been blowing it out of the water with all of their new and very innovative launches this year (hello Crackle and Salon Effects!) and I’m all about their Complete Salon Manicure collection. It’s all 5 steps of a manicure (base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color and top coat) in 1 bottle. And it works! I’ve been rocking their Eel Skin shade (from their Tracy Reese for Sally Hansen spring line) for the past few weeks and my nails are noticeably stronger! It has a thick wand, which makes it surprisingly easier to apply and I can cover my entire nail with two swipes. And I Iove the coverage –2 coats to a perfect manicure. All that’s missing is the hand massage.

3. Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($10) – I admit I don’t need this product. My lower lashes are actually quite long but there are plenty who do; including my 16-year old little sister, who wanted to try it. And who better to test how easy to use and how good this product is then a picky, opinionated beauty-obsessed teenager? I equipped her with a wand and she came out of the bathroom with long, perfectly separated lashes and
