Moroccanoil Artistic Director Kevin Hughes created two hair looks at Monique Lhuillier and notes that the key to perfecting the laid-back style is to finish the style with a light misting of dry texture spray.

Before passing hair through a flat iron to define beachy waves, hair was prepped with Aveda Texture Tonic ($25) and finger-dried using the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. The result: Unfussy, bridal-worthy waves.

The secret to perfecting no-heat waves backstage at Reem Acra was to French braid models' hair and let it sit for an hour before unraveling plaits to reveal beautiful, lived-in texture.
