Start blow-drying—but for now, just use your fingers to comb through your hair as you direct the nozzle of your dryer downward. "Hair won't hold a style until it's about 80 percent dry, so you'd be wasting your time with a brush," says Lisa. If you're not in a rush, you can even skip the blow-dryer altogether at this point and just let your hair air-dry 80 percent of the way.
