Steve, you can use a hair dryer to take out minor wrinkles, but be careful to keep moving the dryer. Too much heat buildup will begin to melt the delicate surface texture of the headliner and you'll end up with a permanent shiny spot. I've never used a wallpaper steamer, but it probably would work. Steam does a better job and won't be as much of a risk to cause overheating, but still, it works for small wrinkles. Make sure you've pulled out as many wrinkles as possible.

I used an iron on a low setting. I ironed the back side with a t-shirt between the iron and headliner. As noted above, keep it moving so you don't burn it. The iron got out the bigger wrinkles and the rest came out with a lot of patience and 2 extra sets of hands to help pull it tight during the installation. The headliner was one of my least favorite jobs of my restoration but it came out perfect. Take your time and walk away if you get aggravated!
