  • Pair the messy blowout hairstyle with a sharp line-up to create an edgy look.
  • Apply styling products to neaten edges regularly.

Styling Tips:

  • Thoroughly blow-dry your hair to create the right amount of frizz.
  • Use curl-enhancing products to maintain your curls.
  • You can pair this style with a low fade to highlight the sides of your blowout.

6. Short Blowout

The short hair makes it easy for the blowout to stay in place, requiring little maintenance. The temple fades at the sides of the hair highlights the length and volume of the hair while showing neatly textured hair.

Styling Tips:

  • Use a hair sponge to create sponge curls.
  • Partner this style with a line-up to keep edges neat.
  • Apply texturizing products to keep your hair texture neat and attractive.

7. Low Fade Blowout



To create this edgy blowout style, blow out the hair on top of your head and gradually taper the sides and back of your hair two inches above your ear to add a low fade.

Styling Tips:

  • Keep the sides of your hair shorter than the top hair.
  • Use styling gel or pomade to keep your hair strands in place.
  • Use texturizing products to boost the texture of top hair.

8. Afro Blowout



The Afro Blowout is another excellent way to combine two styles into one. Blow out your afro hair, and pair it with any fade of your choice, starting from the temples to highlight your edges. Extend the fade to the back of your hair, letting it drop into your neckline like a burst fade.

Styling Tips:

  • Use a comb/ blow-dryer to blow out your hair.
  • Combine with a beard for a blended look.
  • Add a temple fade to highlight the edges of your hair.

9. High Blowout



The High blowout style shows off your hair length and volume. This full-volume appearance will have people turning their heads to admire your blowout. To add a little contrast between the big top hair and the sides, create a low taper fade on both sides of your blowout.

Styling Tips:

  • Use texturizers to enhance your hair texture.
  • Neatly trim hair edges.
  • Pair with a soft line-up to keep hair edges neat.

10. Quiffed Blowout


Get this:

The quiffed blowout style works well for both formal and informal events. It is ideal for men with long top hair.

For this style, blow out top hair straight up away from the face, then use a comb to push the ends of the hair back. You can also comb your hair to the sides rather than the back.

Styling Tips:

  • Use styling gel to mold your blowout into a chic shape at the front hairline.
  • Partner this style with a taper fade to highlight your edges.
  • Keep hair short on both sides of your blowout style.


All in all: 

Although the blowout hairstyle looks great with long or medium hair, it also works well with short hair. On the other hand, people with straight hair might have to put in an extra effort since this hair type has less volume and might not be able to stay in place for a long time. 


If you pair the blowout hairstyle with a fade, you might need to visit your barber regularly to maintain the fade style. In addition, you will need to apply styling products to your blowout hairstyle to maintain its shape.
