Whether it’s bedhead you’re after or slightly disheveled waves, the less-is-more style is rather easy to achieve with the right products. For most of us with straight hair, we don’t wake up like Lily Aldridge. Either way, tousled tresses can be yours with salt spray, volumizing or thickening spray. Recently, I’ve acquired a new favorite Sea Salt Spray by Toni & Guy that was gifted in my Glossybox. The light hold spray smells delightful and adds texture and volume without weighing your hair down.
Another great product I swear by is the Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray. It’s a setting spray with moderate hold and works for all types of hair. You can use it on wet hair to sculpt and on dry hair to hold your look. But, if its big luscious curls you want then Fekkai’s Wave Activating Spray is just the thing. The lightweight styling spray activates the texture of naturally curly or wavy hair to create lasting, soft, loose waves. Spritz over damp hair, twirl in a few finger curls, and voila!
To create Lily’s look, begin by misting salt spray over your hair, scrunching as you blow-dry. This will add fullness and create volume. Then, wrap chunky sections around the curling iron once, individualizing every piece by changing the placement of each curl. Using hairspray, spritz your finished sections as you go. After you’ve completed the whole head, end with salt spray, tousling and twirling locks. If you decide to recreate this look on unwashed hair, just add dry shampoo to your roots and repeat the previous steps.
