Unfortunately, you don't

Unfortunately, if those hard inquiries are legitimate (and not the result of identity theft or credit bureau errors), you're stuck with them for two years. If a lot of them resulted from short-term car, mortgage, or student-loan shopping, theoretically they don't count as heavily against your score as they would if they were separate inquiries. In any case, the only cure is time -- and avoiding more inquiries for a while.
