Blow dry your hair salon-style!

August 5, 2008 4:33:52 PM PDT
No matter how hard you try, it always seems like you can't re-invent that salon look once you get home. Well one San Francisco stylist is trying to help us out with a monthly event called "Blow Out To Go Out."

Bradley Crane's styling tips:

TIP #1: Start with the right tools: Quality hair products such as a volumizer shampoo and conditioner. A professional blow-dryer. Two brushes: a paddle brush for smoothing and wrap-dry and a round brush for finishing.

TIP #2: Thoroughly towel dry hair. The more water left in your hair, the longer it takes to blow dry.

TIP #3: Begin to blow-dry your hair with a paddle brush. Start in the front and blow-dry and smooth your hairline backward and forward. It is the first to dry and hardest to tame. If you have bangs dry them to the opposite direction for more volume. Blow-dry your remaining hair from the back of your nape, brushing forward and upward.

TIP #4: Finish off your blow-dry with a round brush to add more body.

TIP #5: Apply a finishing shine product from the ends up. This will reduce frizz without making your roots look greasy.
