The epitome of cool-girl chic, nothing gives us hair envy like glossy, natural waves à la or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Perfect for adding easy polish to your look for day or night, this universally flattering style is well worth mastering, so we went straight to the experts to get their top tips for creating easy, effortless curls...

How should we prep hair?

“To achieve perfect natural-looking waves, I would initially recommend blow-drying your hair using a blow-dry spray and high-gloss serum to create smoothness and tame any flyaways.” Katie Allan, Charles Worthington Master Stylist

What products will we need?

“Use sea salt spray, such as O&M Surf Bomb, from the mid-lengths to ends – it will add texture without making hair feel dry or crunchy. A bit of dry shampoo can also help enhance the look by boosting volume.” – Jason Collier, Celebrity and Session Stylist

Straighteners or curlers?

“Use straighteners, bending them slightly as you reach the ends with a little flick of the wrist – this will create a beautiful, un-done look. Finish with a light but strong-hold hairspray.” – Katie Allan

Is there an even easier option?

“A great cheat is to loosely braid your hair before bed so you wake up with amazing waves. Remember to apply some light hair oil or paste, such as O&M’s C-Paste, when plaiting to create the desired separation.” – Jason Collier
