Singer Ellie Goulding rocked the MTV VMAs this week with a look of contrasts, pairing beachy waves with a punk-inspired studded dress. Here’s how celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa’s team created the look – which is the perfect easy hairstyle for short, medium and long hair.

1. Start by applying a volumising product to damp hair. Sarah likes Aussie’s Spray Gel

2. Loosely blow dry the hair, twisting pieces away from the face to add texture and body.

3. Using the Sarah Potempa Ceramic Styling Iron, roll hair over the “blow out” attachments to create loose waves and volume.

4. Spray a light flexible hairspray to set the look.
