Wash your hair the night before you plan on styling your hair. The added oil from the day will help make your hair more manageable and will keep it in place better than if your hair is freshly washed. Towel dry your hair and then add a smoothing cream. Scrunch the ends of your hair while applying a light gel or spritzing a sea-salt spray from root to end. Allow your hair to air dry overnight.
When your are ready to put your hair up, comb the roots of your hair slightly with a wide tooth comb. Make sure you do not over comb it, you simply want to comb out the wave at the top three inches. Pull back the top of your hair, making sure that you leave some volume at the top, and use bobby pins to pin the hair into place. Next pin the sides and bottom up loosely against your head, roughly three to four inches away from your hair line .Take the remainder of your hair in the back and twist into messy one inch sections, and secure with a bobby pin. To finish the look, spray with a light hair spray to keep hair in place.
