Do you covet that carefree, effortlessly tousled hair, reminiscent of a day spent seaside? With just five simple steps, this beautiful bohemian look is easier to achieve than you think. The secret? Dry shampoo. It provides texture and hold without weighing down your hair. Follow these steps to get the look:

  1. Apply mousse to combed, towel-dried hair for added texture and hold. Scrunch your hair while it’s air-drying or while blow-drying. We love using Aussie Sprunch Mousse + Leave in Conditioner.

  2. Spray dry shampoo, like Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo, throughout the hair, focusing on the roots for added lift, body and light hold.

  3. Be sure to scrunch the hair at the roots and all over to create that gorgeous, lived-in look.

  4. If your hair lacks natural curl or wave, wrap a few pieces around the barrel of a curling iron.

  5. Finally, add a small and simple braid from the temple to the crown of your head to pull the look together.
