You just can't beat a tousled hairstyle during the summer months, especially as artfully disheveled, loose waves are everywhere right now! One of the easiest ways to rock the trend is with a simple low pony, a style that works particularly well for medium-length cuts.

This 'do is perfect for casual attire but it can also be used to balance something more formal, too. If you would like to try out, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below...

Step one

Starting with freshly washed damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout. If you don't have time to wash your hair, no problem, just spray your dry locks instead!

Step two

Take a section of hair – roughly 1-2" wide – and twist it. Blow-dry the twisted hair while holding onto the ends. As you dry, the spray will help to set the hair in a loose wave.

Step three

Repeat step two on the rest of your hair.

Step four

Once everything is totally dry, use your fingers to break up all the twists then part your hair on one side with a wide-tooth comb. This will give you some semblance of accuracy without compromising the texture you just created.

Step five

Loosely gather your hair back and secure into a low pony at the nape of your neck. Take a section of hair from the pony and use it to camouflage the hair tie. Pin underneath to hold it in place.

Step six

Finish with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and you're all set!
