1. Work with day-old hair which still has a bit of natural oils at the roots. If you’ve just washed yours, not to worry!

2. Lightly mist the hair with heat protectant spray, making sure to avoid spritzing the roots. It could make your hair feel crunchy and oily.

3. Use a curling wand to carefully wrap small sections of hair. If you want this look to feel a little more tousled, take larger sections of hair and leave them around the curling wand for longer.

4. When this is done, comb out your hair to loosen the curls. Before heading out the door, carefully mist your ends with a bit of sea-salt spray. It’ll give the hair a touch of body and bounce without weighing it down like hairspray.
