While grand, once-in-a-lifetime events require you to schedule an appointment at your favorite salon, getting ready for lower scale, everyday activities doesn't. For instance, you'd want to book a session with your trusted hairdresser for a wedding (whether you're the bride or a guest).

If you love looking like you've just stepped out of the salon—without actually laying down the cash to do so—here's a simple heat styling how-to you can try out from the comforts of your home (or anywhere you can tote your hairdryer to). Six steps are all it takes before you can strut your stuff, perfectly coiffed hair in place.
