Expert Testimony: High and Dry

ShareThis

After you've washed that man (or woman) right out of your hair, how are you going to dry it? Not, we hope, with that five-and-dime-bought hair dryer that seems to have only two settings: regular and extra-crispy. Stylist Paul Labrecque (Paul Labrecque Salon & Spa, 160 Columbus Avenue; 595-0099) prefers to dry the heads of customers like Natasha Richardson, Debra Winger, and Kyra Sedgwick with the Solano Gold hair dryer. "It has the most power, it dries the hair the quickest, and it's very easy to use -- all good things," remarks Labrecque. Handcrafted in Europe, civilian-model Solanos may be found at your local drugstore, but the professional-line Gold (which retails for around $120) can be found at both Labrecque's salon and on the Web at Ball Beauty Supply (www.ballbeauty.com).
