1. Cool-girl waves

This va-va-voom wavy hairstyle is a great way to let your hair down and inject some extra oomph into your style this festival season!

And guess what? You won’t even need to use heat to create the look (yes, really!). Start the weekend with braids and rock them for 2 or 3 days, then when you take them out, just watch as your cool-girl waves come to life! Credit: @skyepetrie

Editor’s tip: After you take your braids out, mist some Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray all over your waves, to give them a star-worthy sheen!
