The style Anna's hair is fine, so Olson starts by spritzing her wet strands with a thickening, volumizing spray then goes straight to the bangs to blow dry them first. You want to manipulate the way the bangs dry, so they don’t fluff up or start to wave, says Olson. Therefore, it is imperative they be first in the order of blow-drying business. To keep bangs orderly and not dated-looking, Olson blow dries them with a flat brush, first brushing to the right as she blows them with heat, followed by brushing them to the left as she blows them with heat. This will keep them down against her forehead. She then dries the rest of Anna's hair with a round brush, aiming the heat down the hair shaft and pulling taught to guard against frizz and to enhance shine. To set the look, Olson finishes by misting Anna's hair with a light-hold hairspray (try Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Touchable Volume Hairspray, $3.39).
