DIY Blowout Tutorial | Hot Tools Hot Thermal Styling Brush

DIY At-Home Blowout Tutorial feat. Hot Tools Hot Thermal Styling Brush
After everybody’s feedback from this post and months of questions, I finally filmed a tutorial on how to use my all-time favorite hair tool – the Hot Tools Hot Thermal Styling Brush. I’m not joking when I say that this brush has completely changed the way that I style my hair, both for everyday and special occasions. It was my favorite purchase of 2015!


Just fair warning – apparently my favorite word these days is “okay,” and this video really highlights that. I’ll keep that in mind and try to catch myself next time I film a video.

I hope that you enjoy the tutorial!

    Thanks for the tutorial! Can you tell me how does this differ from using a regular curling iron?

  4. I want one of these so bad now! I totally also thought it was a spinning brush thing at first, but the few times I dry my hair I always wish I was coordinated enough to dry and brush my hair at the same time- so this is like the perfect solution!

  5. had to wait till i got home to watch, but absolutely loved the video girl!! okay, so i have one thought / question. i want to be able to wash my hair, go to sleep and style it in the morning (so air / natural dry) which is what i currently do with my curling thingy or straightener. my hair is frizzy and kinky naturally, not straight like yours was in the video, so i wonder if it would still work? you know? also, i absolutely suck with a round brush and a blow dryer, so do you think i could still do this? and i need that tresemme 24 hour body stuff. your hair is just perfect! again, love the video! thank you 🙂

    • Thanks, lady! And, I definitely think this would still work – since it’s a round brush and heated, it should smooth out any frizziness/kinks. Kinda like what they do when they blow your hair out at the salon! I hope you give it a try!

    Karly! You are like my beauty fairy godmother – I’ve always wanted to get this look for my hair. I’m suppose to be laying off shopping but I might have to cave and get this asap! Why can’t we just live closer?! You rocked the video too, btw!

    • You are so sweet, this comment made my day! I love spreading the joy of beauty to others. 🙂 Um, I think you should skip the no shopping thing and get this for yourself – it’s only $30! You can’t go wrong. 🙂

  13. I’m at work and this is blocked but I cannot wait to get home and watch it because I bought the brush and I used it really quickly and liked it but I know that I’m not using its full potential!

    Terrific tutorial and that brush just makes your hair look amazing! Wondering if they make one small enough to use on shorter hair, may have to look into that.

    That’s a lot of hot in the title LOL! It gives you such great volume, but I’m scared of round brushes!! Although this one doesn’t seem like it would get my hair stuck in! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    • Haha, I know – I kept confusing myself when I was typing it. I promise this won’t get stuck in your hair!

    • I had no idea that BabyLiss made one, but I’m sure it’s good since that’s a great brand. And, I agree with you – these types of brushes work great!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
