"I fell asleep with my hair wet, and this is how it looked when I woke up," she told me. Yes, she basically had a sleeping beauty moment.
I couldn't help but think of that when I spotted today's Beauty Queen, Olivia Wilde; like Steff, the actress' hair looked particularly no-fuss styled. Ombre tips or not, these low-key waves are shockingly easy to get yourself. Here's how:
PREP IT: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-In-1 Styling Treatment - $26
Apply this do-it-all product from root to tip--the bottle may recommend that you brush it out, but for this piece-y texture you can skip that step.
That's right, sleep on it. The product will prevent your strands from getting too frizzy (AKA no bad bed head).
BEACH IT: Victoria's Secret Beach Hair Wave Spray - $12
When you wake up, spritz on a bit of surf spray (Steff recommends just once on each side of your head). Give it a few minutes to dry before throwing your hair up in a bun--keep it up as you get ready for work/school/life, and then take it out just as you're about to walk through the door. Prepare to be greeted by your easy, not-too-messy waves.
