Fugate is worth every penny, and his take on the classic blowout will make you feel like a bona fide celebrity too! “Most of my styling technique is a mindset of quality over quantity. Everything I do has a purpose. Also personalization. I try not to curl just to curl, I like to add wave where I want to bring out someone’s features; like the eyes, dimples, or open up the collarbone.” If you aren’t heading to NYC anytime soon, check out Matt’s best tips and tricks to master the perfect blowout at home. 425 W 14th Street | NY, NY 10014 RPZL For those beauty babes looking to dramatically transform your look in an instant, RPZL offers a glamorous blowout bar that specializes in extensions!
