1. Work a dollop of mousse through your wet hair—Sebastian Whipped Crème Style Whip ($19) is incredibly light and not at all sticky—then scrunch and twist one-inch sections to form waves.
2. Once your hair is dry, wrap each wave around a curling iron like the T3 Pro EverTwirl ($89), alternating the direction so that hair won't clump together.
3. Set with a mist of aerosol hairspray. Warren-Tricomi Style Flexible Hairspray ($20) won't feel stiff.
