1. If your hair is just freshly washed, apply a lightweight serum onto your ends. This will help to lock-in moisture, but won’t weigh the rest of your hair down.

2. Mist the rest of your hair with sea salt spray, and scrunch it with your fingers. This will help to generate extra volume to even super-straight hair.

3. Use a hair-dryer on cool, and make sure to add the diffuser onto the tip. This is essential if you want to nail the wavy locks Gemma Ward is sporting.

4. If the diffuser trick isn’t working on your hair type, simply use a curling wand with a large barrel to create the illusion of beachy waves. Section off the hair, then work your way from back to front – this will ensure that your hair maintains the curl for longer.
