Best Blow-Dry
Salon AKS
694 Madison Avenue, near 62nd Street
212-888-0707

A good blowout is the quickest way to go from bedraggled to chic, but there's nothing worse than a bad one — where you pay upwards of $60, sit in the chair for an hour, and still wind up with frizzies the following day. The safest bet is to stick with the experts — we found two of the best within blocks of one another. Mika Rummo of AKS knows how to give tresses a glamorous lift, and to hit hair with a cold blast to get it perfectly straight ($45-$65).

Josephine
200 East 62nd Street
212-223-7157


GREAT DEAL: At Josephine, Dayler Chages has blown out the tresses of Heidi Klum and has a loyal following of Vogue girls. He charges a relatively modest $40, and it drops to $35 if you get a manicure and pedicure, too.
