It's not exactly news that there's a correlation between your sex life and good hair. It's like next-level bedhead. But you don't need a gentleman caller to achieve sexture, a term coined by hairstylist Kat Zemtsova. The look is the hair solution that's been right in front of you all summer long—especially considering one of the main ingredients is sweat.

"No matter what kind of hair type you have, it's all about imperfection that doesn't lay flat—it's sexy, messy, and piece-y texture that moves," explains Zemtsova. "It's basically the antithesis of stiff waves or sausage curls."

And there's two ways you can approach it based on whether you want to simply boost your natural texture, or use hot tools to mimic your mane after a roll in the hay. If it's the former you prefer, you can enhance it with the right styling product that, like sweat, adds just the right amount of grit.

"On clean, wet hair, you can mist on a waves spray, then tousle it as it air dries," she explains. "On days-old hair, a dry texture spray on the mids to ends will give you the grit without making the hair feel sticky or crunchy."

If you're one for hot tools, the key is to opt for larger barrel curling irons and make sure all the waves aren't too uniform.

"I usually use two different size barrels to achieve 'sexture,'" says Zemtsova. "In no particular order, I'll alternate between a 1-inch and 1 1/2-inch iron with larger sections for a more natural, less perfect effect. Then, I'll finger comb the waves and use a dry texture spray to set it."

And the postcoital glow? That's where Nars' Orgasm Blush comes in.
