Cara’s Messy, Next Day Look


Ideal for the summer season, grab your beach bag and go searching for the surf with these perfect next-day waves that appear as though you’ve just rolled out of bed—in an effortlessly cool kind of way.

Tips to achieve this look:

  • If you have naturally wavy hair, wash and allow your hair to air-dry; spray all over with texture spray and scrunch your locks between your palms for some extra volume.

  • If you have naturally straight hair, sleep with your hair in a loose braid. Spray with hairspray in the morning, and tease your roots slightly with a tail comb for max volume.

  • For girls with curls, flair iron your hair and add a few, randomly dispersed loose curls either with a hot barrel or your flat iron itself. Hold the curl for just a quick moment, and tousle your locks to add in some messiness. Finish with texture spray.

  • Spray some hairspray into your palms and scrunch for a beachy, natural looking wave. Then, shake it out. Loose waves achieved.

Blake’s Braided Pony


Whether you’re a woman from the Amazon or a red carpet crusader, be strong yet bohemian with one of the latest trends in celebrity hair: the braided pony!

Tips to achieve this look:

  • Pull all of your hair into a high pony, brushing with a comb, and tie it securely at the crown of your head. Use a clear or hair-matching tie for a polished look.

  • Tease and spray your hair before braiding for some additional hold, texture and volume.

  • Braid and tie at the bottom with a clear hair tie. Then, go through the braid, pulling it apart gently to add more texture.

  • Add a little hair accessory for some fun or keep it simple and sleek.

Jaime King’s High Pony


If you like the braided pony but are looking for more of a 90’s Spice Girls vibe, try Jaime's high pony look for a night on the town or a day on the beach. Versatile yet classic, you’re bound to turn heads with this confident hairstyle.

Tips to achieve this look:

  • Flatiron your hair, from the roots to the ends. Remember to spray with a heat protector first!

  • Then use a comb to smooth back your hair into a secure, high pony; smooth out flyaways with hairspray or hair oil. Pro tip: spray your hairspray on a toothbrush (that you don't use your on your teeth) to catch all those baby hairs.

  • Consider hiding the hair tie by wrapping a small piece of your hair around the tie, securing it underneath with a bobby pin.
