Easy waves, trendy ombré and an eye-catching fishtail braid all work together to create this flowy, bohemian style. "Take larger sections from the bottom half of your hair and curl it with a Beachwaver S1 iron. Make sure to clamp out the ends to give your waves a more casual vibe," says Potempa. "Then, take the top half of your hair to create a fishtail braid and 'pancake' the braid by using your fingers to gently pull out outside pieces of the braid. If you strategically do this in different sections, it makes the braid appear fuller and lush." We love the way you can get all the benefits of having your hair down without shorter layers getting in your face. (Curling iron, $129, Beachwaver)
