Blowouts Are Brilliant—And So Is This Holiday Gift

A perfect blow-out can improve my entire week. To me, it means I won't have to spend endless hours washing and styling my hair (for at least four days), and I'll feel put-together every morning with minimal effort. Unfortunately, I don't always have time to hit the salon Monday morning (who does?) to get my weekly session in. That's why I have my eye on this fancy little blow-out set. The Brilliant Blow-Dry Gift Set by Redken ($24) comes with three styling products that can make your at-home styling session so much more enjoyable. There's: -Redken Extreme Anti-Snap Leave-in Treatment ($18): Use it for heat protection and to keep your hair from breaking or splitting at the ends while you style. -Travel-size Redken Satinwear 02 Ultimate Blow-Dry Lotion ($4): Smooth this on your strands to speed up your drying time since it reduces friction as you brush. And bonus—it protects your hair color. -Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray ($16.50): Locks your hairstyle in place for hours and, my favorite, protects your hair from humidity--so you don't end up with a midday afro (as I often do). Plus, the set comes with blow-dry tips that stick onto your mirror to help you achieve that just-left-the-salon look. It's going on my holiday wishlist, and I'm sure you (or someone special) will like it too. Trust us, it's not too early to start shopping.
