The Tousled Wave
"For perfectly tousled waves, start by separating your hair into 2–3 inch horizontal sections. Then, carefully brush out any knots using a wide tooth comb and generously spritz it with your favorite sea–salt spray. Once you're done sectioning and spritzing, flip your head upside"down and give your hair a little scrunch. Bring it back up, tuck behind your ears and let it air dry. From here, you can easily throw up into a textured top knot. Speaking of..."

The Top Knot
"Flip your head over and secure a nice high pony tail with a tight hair elastic—don't worry about making it to perfect, a few bumps and lumps are nice and add texture. Next, pull a few strands out around your face to soften the hairline and add an effortless, feminine vibe. Finally, twist the ponytail until it buckles and secure it with a pin. Don't be afraid to let the ends stick out a bit!"

The Scarf Wrap
"The secret to wearing a head scarf is making sure that you fold the scarf itself neatly and evenly. Personally, I prefer a lot of texture in the hair to contrast a silky smooth scarf. Once you've folded the scarf in thirds, place it on your forehead and tie in just off—center back under your occipital bone—enough so you can see a little of the scarf from the front."
