This is a great look for hair that has a bit of wave in it. To get this look follow these steps:

Step 1: Spritz damp hair with texturizing spray I prefer Bumble and Bumble's Surf Spray. Spray all over the head to get a rough texture. If you have thick hair, spray less. Buy the spray here.

Step 2: Scrunch hair as it air dries Scrunch your hair with your fingers (don't brush or comb out hair) and let hair air dry, scrunching here and there as it dries.

Step 3: Create curls with an iron You can skip this step if your hair is naturally super wavy or curly. Create haphazard curls with a curling iron. The secret is mussy, not perfect curls. Wrap random 2-inch thick sections of hair around the fat barrel of a curling iron.

Step 4: Finger comb hair Run your fingers through hair to break up the curls.

Step 5: Secure hair into updo Leaving the front bits out, pull hair back into a mussy updo and secure with a ponytail holder and/or bobby pins. Finish with a quick spritz of hair spray.
