The Technique: If you have a hard time handling a blow-dryer and a round brush at the same time, here’s your two-in-one solution: The ceramic barrel dispenses targeted airflow, while the soft bristles smooth and manipulate hair. Start by roughdrying strands with a blow-dryer, focusing on your roots, to remove excess moisture and add oomph. Next, divide damp hair into four large sections. Wrap the middle of a 2-inch chunk of hair from one section around the barrel and slowly brush through, flicking your wrist as you go for effortless-looking loose curls. Repeat until hair is completely dry; finish with a spritz of hairspray.
