At home Professional Salon Blow Out? Help plz, so bad at blow outs! Want my Penelope Cruz Moment!
Hi! I have very long hair, like to my elbows, and I suck at styling! Other than one size fits all hot rollers (TopStyler), I don't know how to do my hair. It took me like 4 years to figure out how to do a french braid? And even then, I only know how to do the reverse style, because the only tutorial I could find that was slow and simple enough for me to understand taught that lol.
There's so much potential with my hair, but my styling skills are so basic, braid and reverse french braid is it. I tried doing a fishtale and it looked like crap.
Stylists, artists, anyone, please, can you recommend a good tutorial that goes slowly and explains blow outs? and basics? Like, the Lisa Eldridge of hair? I've watched this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SM-OspCx4qk
And will be buying the brush, but I am having a hard time even finding a tutorial that shows all the brush sizes and what the curls look like. Brad Mondo says "oh, you know, just get the right sized brush depending on your length" and glosses over that part like EVERYONE should know this. I'm almost 30 and I don't?!?!? I just want the OG Kim K wavy, voluminous, over the top, born this way totally not curled at all look.
I am getting this brush (idk what size) and I have a dyson hairdryer: https://www.amazon.com/Olivia-Garden-NT-54-NanoThermic-Ceramic/dp/B003IX36H0/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Olivia+Garden&qid=1574258397&sr=8-3
I use bumble&bumble invisible oil line for everything. I haven't figured out the curling iron, I have been leaning on the TopStyler HARD. Is the TopStyler even a respectable tool or is that like training wheels when it comes to hair?

Curling System help
Hello. I'm wondering if anybody has recommendations for curling systems.
Background: I have very thick, heavy, long hair. I have layers throughout to help with weight and shape. My hair used to be very, very wavy - but that's dwindled with length.
I am not at all decent with doing much with my hair - I really wish I was. I wish I had skills and knowledge to do different things, but I don't. (So, honestly, easy crafts and styles would be appreciated, if nothing else).
I have a Remington Ionic Conditioning Hair Setter. Which probably would've worked so much better if I'd ever used them before, and if my hair weren't so heavy.
A friend of mine just recently used a Topstyler by Instyler, and a Remington H9096 on me. Both seemed to work really well at first - didn't hold as long as I'd have liked at all - but the Topstyler was definitely something I could do more easily, without help, haha.
So, I'm wondering if there are similar options to the Topstyler? Are there better products/options that are more clips than curlers? I have read through a million on Amazon, and could see where I'd need to buy "heavy-duty" clips if getting curlers, as most of the reviews say the clips don't hold thick/heavy hair well. But other than that, I'm not sure what my options are.
I got some Boldify spray and dry shampoo to help. I have a great hair dryer with a diffuser, too. My hair is very naturally oily, so I don't really want oil-intensifying products (washing my hair every other day is pushing my luck, as it gets oily quick). Heck, even help with that is much appreciated.
Basically, I'm trying to do this "girl" thing a little better. I'm a high-level Executive Admin, and I'd like to represent that better. At first-glance, I'm less-put-together than my fellow admins - and because I'm also half their age, it reflects more like I'm less professional or experienced than I am.
