I can’t get enough of sexy, laid-back, cool hair. The I just rolled out of bed look seems to come naturally to fashionistas and models, but for the rest of us sometimes it’s a bit more difficult to look so perfectly imperfect. If you’re like me, your forever trying every technique in the book to perfect this look. After much practice, I have just the right tutorial for you to get it. Click through to style notes to get the details. –– Michelle Rotbart

Step One: Start with damp hair and apply cream whip from roots to ends. It’s a great product to start with because it makes hair easy to comb and style and even enhances waves and soft movement without adding hold.

Step Two: You can opt to blow-dry hair if you want, no serious skills needed because you’re going for an undone look. However, you don’t have to and can take a more low-maintenance approach and air-dry. Spray in some wave mist for texture.

Step Three: Once hair is dry, spray it with protective thickening lotion and use your curling wand to create big, beach-inspired curls. Work from the front to back and curl large sections of hair starting half way down length. Twist away from your face for more volume. Let each curl cool before starting on the next section to ensure your style stays. For looser waves, rake through hair with fingers.

Step Four: Once your style is set, spray in a generous amount of refinish and then use your gainers to scrunch and twirl in sections until you’ve reached your desired look and texture.
