Celebrity hairstylist Sharon Morrrisey is the go-to gal for blowouts at New York fashion shows. Her tried-and-true tips:

  • A blowout should last four to five days. Tell the stylist that you want a prolonged blowout before your hair is washed, so he or she knows which products to use.
  • At home, stick to silicone-based products, which tend not to weigh hair down.
  • Before bed, secure hair in a ponytail with a scrunchie. You'll wake up with instant volume and without the dreaded rubber-band crimp.
  • Before showering, wrap hair in a towel to block out moisture and prevent frizz.
  • For the longest-lasting blowout, smooth hair each day with a round boar-bristle brush. Finish with a blast of cool air from your hairdryer to seal the cuticles.
