Step: Towel-dry hair to damp. Work styling whip from mid lengths to ends. Blowdry hair with hands. To encourage natural texture, toss hair from side to side as you dry. Down both sides, create little twists of hair in hands and blowdry these twists up and down with the nozzle pointing down.

Step: Once dry, amp the volume and sea-salt texture by pulsing in layers of refinish dry shampoo and shaking and tousling hair as you do.

Step: If you want more wave and movement, apply some protective thickening lotion and use a curling wand to artfully wave and curl a few pieces here and there. The finish should show perfectly imperfect tousle and flow.

Step: Add soft asymmetry by pushing one side of part behind ear while allowing the other side to tumble down neck and shoulders.
