She sprays those pieces (which she has combined into a single front section) with Joico Ironclad Thermal Protectant Spray and wraps them around a curling iron — Smalley tells Allure it's a 1. 25-inch barrel — and briefly holds the iron horizontally at her hair line.

That's why we love this easy hair hack from stylist and colorist Olivia Smalley — it will make the coworkers in your next Zoom meeting wonder how you got a professional blowout when salons aren't open.
South Florida-based Smalley shared a video to Instagram that she calls "Fake Blowout Hack" — and there isn't a hair dryer in sight.
