Perfect this season's take on wavy hair the easy way!

This season, the best way to wear wavy hair - or the most on-trend - is in loose, tousled waves that aren't exactly beachy, but don't look blow-dried or curled with heat either. The key to getting the look just right? Air drying your hair... with a little help from your favorite hat!

An easy hack for perfect waves

Step 1

After towel drying your hair, leave it to air dry naturally until it's only slightly damp. If time is of the essence, rough-dry your hair on a medium heat, using your hands instead of a hairbrush.

Step 2

When your hair is about 80% dry, apply a texturizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and put a hat on - a sun hat, a felt hat or anything with a rim - and leave it to dry the rest of the way. This will keep the top few inches of hair smooth and straight, leaving plenty of room for the lower sections to gain movement.

Step 3

While wearing the hat, twist the lengths of your hair around your forefinger to create waves. Keep doing this periodically as the hair dries so the twisted hair keeps it's shape. When your hair is totally dry, shake it out, then scrunch some more texturizing spray through the lengths.

Protect your style

When you're happy with it, complete the look with a strong hold hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray in order to preserve your waves and prevent frizz.

Hat hair never looked so good!
