HAIR: "The key to snagging a date is confidence," says Labrecque. "Show the guy what sexy bedhead hair looks like with a killer blowout." To get that Victoria's Secret model look, Labrecque says to blow your hair out with lots of volume by drying at the roots with a round boar bristle brush. Add bounce with a volumizing spray like Oribe Hair Care Dry Texturizing Spray.
MAKEUP: "Have fun with your makeup, but be yourself," says Dean. "The first impression is always the most important, so you want to be able to live up to what you portray when you first meet someone." Another good tip? Wear your own makeup. Aside from the ick factor of germs you could catch from your friend's makeup bag, if you wear you own colors and products you won't be scrambling to re-create a look that wasn't yours to begin with if you land a second date.
