  1. Wash and condition your hair

    Shampoo, condition and rinse your hair with cool water. Squeeze out the excess moisture, and wrap your hair in a towel. Remove the towel after five minutes, comb your hair, and let it air dry.

  2. Wrap the hair around a curling iron

    Preheat your curling iron, and mist your hair with texturizing spray. Separate a 2-inch section, and hold it in one hand. Pick up the curling iron, hold it vertically, and wrap the hair around the barrel. Keep the iron stationary. Hold the hair around the barrel for 10 seconds, then release it. Repeat with the rest of your hair. For the most natural waves, use a combination of 1-, 2- and 3-inch sections.

  3. Apply hairspray

    Unplug the curling iron, tousle your hair with your fingers, and break up any tight curls. Lock the waves in place with flexible-hold hairspray, and smooth your hands over the crown to contain flyaway strands.
