If you love on-trend hairstyles and lightning-fast styling techniques, you're in the right place. We have an easy, not to mention quick, tutorial to help you create perfect textured waves à la Blake Lively.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. Not only will this help you to get gorgeous waves, it also protects against heat damage, so make sure you cover every strand!

Step 2
Divide your hair into four or five sections and loosely braid each one. You may need more or less braids, depending on the thickness of your hair.

Step 3
Flat iron each braid to set the hair into waves. Glide the iron slowly over the braid from top to bottom, taking care not to heat the hair for too long.

Step 4
After flat ironing, let the braids loose and shake your fingers through your locks to break up the waves.

Step 5
To further texturize the ends, warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands, then scrunch it through your hair.

Step 6
To set the style and keep flyaways at bay, mist your finished look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

When you're done, you can accessorize this look any way you like, leave it as it is, create a half-up style, whip it up into a disheveled updo... the possibilities are endless!

How will you wear it?
