1. Do a Perfect Blowout at Home
"If you often have some frizzy or unruly areas of your hair after blow drying, especially in the back or underside, you need to section your hair as you dry it. This ensures that every piece is smooth, and you'll also save time and cut back on heat exposure, because you won't be going over the same areas again and again. Buy a few alligator hair clips — they look like duck bills with teeth. Section damp hair into four quadrants by parting it in the middle, then splitting each side in half horizontally; clip up the top sections. Blow dry with a round brush, working on one-inch-wide pieces of hair. When you finish the bottom layers, undo the top ones and repeat until all of your hair is dry." —Harry Josh, creator of Harry Josh Pro Tools and celebrity stylist whose clients include Olivia Wilde
