Julianne Hough
The simplest way to get this piecey texture is by blow drying hair rough and adding texturizing spray and a dab of pomade. Pop in some braids like Julianne for added texture.



Alexa Chung
Switch directions with your curling iron and vary the width of curled sections to get waves that aren’t too perfect, like Alexa's

A half-up hairstyle is particularly flattering when combined with waves. To get this crimped look, wear loose braids to bed the night before.

Dress up bouncy messy waves with a side part.

A long bob can be made even better with waves.

Lily Collins
Use a texturizing spray to get chunky waves, like Lily's.

Waves can be just as alluring when they're brushed out and soft.
