What to do:

1. Start with the hair soaking wet. Gurgov says you shouldn't wait for your hair to air dry.

TODAY
Make sure your hair is really wet.

2. Apply your favorite styling and shine serum throughout the hair.

TODAY
Styling and shine serum are essential.

3. Brush the product through using a wet brush or comb.

TODAY
Be sure to use a brush that's meant for wet hair.

4. Start by blow drying the very front of the hair. You'll notice the front tends to be curlier than the back, so grab a small round brush (1/2 inch) to smooth out the hair line.

TODAY
It's important to start with the hairline.

Pro tip: Put the brush on top of the hair rather than under it to achieve an ultra smooth look.

5. Use a 3-inch brush to blow dry the rest of the hair.

TODAY
A larger brush will help you get the job done faster.

Pro tip: When it comes to the back, you'll want to put the brush under the hair to get more lift at the root.

6. Grab a flat iron, but only focus on the hairline.

TODAY
The smaller the flat iron, the more you can focus on those baby hairs at the hairline.

Pro tip: The flat iron will help seal out any moisture that causes hair to frizz.

7. Blast hair with cool air to seal the style.

TODAY
Cool air the secret finishing touch.
