Sold? Here's how you get the look:

  1. Prep damp hair by liberally applying a volumizing mist and letting it soak in for a few minutes.
  2. Create a center part using hands or a small comb.
  3. Rough dry hair using a blow-dryer on high heat.
  4. Create loose waves by wrapping sections of hair around a 1 1/2 inch flat iron.
  5. Run blow-dryer quickly through hair again to boost volume.
  6. Liberally spray a texture finishing spray to create texture and light hold.
