That’s why we’re bringing in the expert! Celebrity stylist and Cricket Co. ambassador Jet Rhys says that no matter what your locks’ texture, having the right tools is key to achieving that perfect hair you’re after like, every day. Here’s what she recommends.

2. Nume Magic Curling Wand 1 1/4-Inch ($79): Curls still acting cray? You need a small barrel iron. After waking up, Rhys recommends using it to help redefine your ringlets to lend a polished feel. Bounce on, friends.
3. Bed Head A Wave We Go Adjustable Deep Waver ($40): Just because your hair is stick straight doesn’t mean you can’t shape it up. Rhys says this type of iron will help give a relaxed wave and texture to your hair without having to resort to a basic style. Read: You don’t have to be basic. Got it.
4. Drybar High-Tops Self Grip Rollers ($10): Rollers are still very much a thing, ladies. Leaving them in your hair overnight will give your locks body and movement without the use of heat.
5. Conair Volumizing Diffuser Attachment ($10): Wave your hair like you just don’t care! Flip your head upside down and lay it in the diffuser to help accentuate your natural wave while giving you volume FTW, according to Rhys.
