So I recently read an article on a favorite beauty publication of mine that claimed that tousled waves, the summer’s go-to look for both the cat walk and my personal lazy weekends is dead. Per the stylists in the article, sleek and minimalist hair is what will be trending. But I’m going to have to disagree, on a professional and a personal level. Because, hello, the whole I-woke-up-like-this beauty look (which includes tousled strands) isn’t going anywhere, and even Kim Kardashian has given up on contouring. And what could be more minimalist then wearing your natural texture or easy waves? So don’t go tossing your texture spray out yet ladies. Tousled tendrils are here to stay, and in case you need to reinforce yours, click through to the notes to learn what products are essential to your look. –– Michelle Rotbart

Refinish Dry Shampoo

It’s a go-to for all lengths and textures if you want instant volume and tousled movement. It’s also great for extending your waves a few extra days. Best yet, it comes in a mini travel size so you can throw one in your purse to ensure great hair all day long.

Wave Mist

It’s the perfect light mist for easy beach waves. With ingredients like sea salt and sea kelp extract, it’s amazing for curls and creates great lift and volume. And the smell is simply beachy heaven!

Curl Enhancer

This styler is my favorite for encouraging loose waves and curls. It’s full of moisture and works great for tightening and uniting softer textures.
