You've probably heard of manicures and martinis before. How about blowout lessons and bellinis [1]? That's just what the Oscar Blandi [2] Salon in Manhattan is offering to its clients.

For $250, attendees of the class have one-on-one instruction time with a stylist. "Everyone’s nervous," Blandi told the New York Times. "This is why we have Bellinis," he added. Find some of his tips from the class when you .

  1. Squeeze any excess water out with your fingers.
  2. Apply a straightening balm to your fingers (not palms). Rub the product on your fingers together and rake through your hair as if you were using your fingers as a comb.
  3. Dry hair slightly using low heat, without a brush.
  4. Section and clip hair into four parts: one in the front, back, and on each side.
  5. Blow-dry each section separately, always using a nozzle pointed at a 90-degree angle, for the most consistent, straightest, and shiniest results. Use a flat brush in one hand and a blow-dryer in the other. Take a strip of hair (about brush-width) into your brush. Using your brush as the lead, move the brush down the hair from roots to ends, following behind with your blow-dryer.
  6. After completing each section, repeat the blow-drying techniques with a round brush for smoothness. Hello, fabulous hair.
