Section Hair Into 4 Parts
That morning time crunch might leave you with little time for getting dolled up, but you'll get much better results if you don't rush through the blowout process. Taking time to section off your strands before blow-drying will give you a much smoother finish, especially by the root.
"I recommend using alligator clips as they do the best job of gripping your hair so strands don't slide out," Vaccaro explained. "When sectioning hair, wrap it up into four distinct parts — the front, back, and two sides — by twisting the strands up into miniature buns." Once hair is sectioned, release the front portion to style first and go from there.
