Use聽Not Your Mother鈥檚 Whip It Up Cream Styling Mousse聽($15)聽because聽it smells like frosting and feels so silky聽in your hands and hair. Prepping with product聽will help your curls and tiny braids stand the test of time 鈥 not to mention, we love the luxe texture!

STEP 2: CURL IT UP

Next, use a 1 1/2-inch curling rod to create聽luscious beach waves. No need to be strategic with your curls. Sporadic spacing will give聽your locks a casual vibe that鈥檚 perfect聽for a boho look. Feel free to let some of your natural texture shine through too.

STEP 3: TEASE TO SET THE ENDS

Begin creating tiny braids, in varying widths, throughout your head (mostly in the back and a few on the sides). Set your braids in place by teasing the ends with a rattail comb. This step will create that coveted texture and inject your 鈥榙o with聽some serious 鈥榯ude.

Finish the look with a touchable holding spray to ensure long-lasting body. Don鈥檛 be afraid to rub your hands through your hair and celebrate the hair goddess that you are. This look is giving聽us all kinds of vacay vibes, so sit back, sip your ros茅 and enjoy!
