Spritz hair with styling spray and blow-dry with a round brush for volume and so ends are smooth and polished.
Take medium-sized Velcro rollers and wrap hair down around them in one-inch sections. Leave rollers in your hair for at least 20 minutes. Spray with a fine-mist, strong-hold hairspray before removing the rollers.
With a natural boar bristle paddle brush, brush out the front/top section of your hair so you get that swooshy, sexy hair-falling-over-one-eye effect. Leave the rest of the curls more solidly in tact. Just shake them out a little bit so hair looks soft.
In the shower, go easy on the shampoo — the more natural oils left in your hair the better.
Steer clear of vigorously towel-drying and instead, blot hair so your bathroom floor doesn't end up covered in water.
Then cocktail equal parts gel and leave-in conditioner and coat damp hair in the mixture. Carefully and lightly scrunch hair (stopping a few inches below the root, so you get the top to lie flat). Air-dry, and keep your hands off since touching your hair creates frizz.
