This clutch is hotter than burning coals. Available in ivory and flesh, ($59.95). Go straight to and buy now!The Pro Blow

It?s that time again… Christmas parties and office shindigs. Is your hair going to past the test? We show you how to blow dry your luxurious long locks like a pro. (SheSaid shorthaired sisters should embrace the low-maintenance bed-hair look. Go from sleek to sexy in seconds ? just mess and go!)

Step one:

Semi towel-dry hair and break up into sections. Separate the front into thirds and tie up the back section. Secure all of the portions with clips. Then slowly comb a small amount of styling lotion through each section.

Step two:

Firstly, the bigger

the brush, the smoother the hair. Wind each section of hair up from tip to root with a circular brush. Pull it as tight as you can, but don?t hurt yourself.Step three:

This is where the dryer comes into the equation. While holding the brush taut right to the root of the hair, blast the dryer nozzle onto the hair in downward strokes and have it on the hottest setting. Keep the dryer moving so that it never gets too hot.

Step four:

Keep rolling the brush out just a little and quite slowly as you keep drying. Keep doing that-winding it up and down until the hair is dry. Do the back section last. This is because most people look at you from the front. Repeat the drying process until you are happy with the result and to finalise spray a little hair spray. Viola!
