Counterintuitive as it may be, effortless-looking hair actually requires some effort, and it's harder to recreate than it looks. So we called upon L'Oreal Paris celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak. She works with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Brie Larson and Emma Stone; her salon, Mare, is a haven for Los Angeles "It" girls. Here, she shows us how to create gorgeously undone, insanely Instagrammable wavy hair.
Wavy Hair Tutorial Step 1: Start With Damp Hair
Wavy Hair Tutorial Step 2: Use Mousse
Wavy Hair Tutorial Step 3: Blow It Out
Wavy Hair Tutorial Step 4: Add Braids
Then, spritz your braids with a wave spray and let your hair set for a few minutes. Roszak used L'Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Wave Swept Spray, $4.99. We also like Ouai Wave Spray, $26, and IGK Beach Club Texture Spray, $29.
Undo the braids and finish finger-drying your hair.
