Mastering the perfect cool-girl hair is as elusive as curbing a carb addiction. WHO ARE WE KIDDING? Everyone and their mom knows looking effortless isn’t that effortless at all. And there’s nothing worse than putting in the time, only to see your hair turn into a puffy fly-away mess as soon as you leave the house.

We reached out to Kevin Hughes, the global ambassador for Moroccanoil, and asked him to help us finally master the art of calm and stylish summer hair. This easy ten-step solution will have you thanking your lucky Moroccan stars – and finally kicking frizz to the curb.

10 Step-By-Step Instructions To Get The Look

Use Moroccanoil Treatment Light through mid-length and end of hair.

Layer in Moroccanoil Thickening Lotion throughout hair.

Roughly dry hair with fingers and lift at the root.

Create a very deep side part.

Use a 1 1/4 inch curling iron and take a section of hair (about the same size as the iron), then spray with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Medium.

Wrap hair around the iron, focusing on the middle of the strand.

Leave the last two inches straight and do not curl too close to your head. Try to alternate the direction you are curling, so that the hair does not fall into perfect looking curls – This gives you more volume.

Use a wide tooth comb to rake through hair.

Use Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray to give the look a grittier feel and volume.

To create separate chunky ends, use Moroccanoil Texture Clay to individualize some strands.
