First, towel-dry hair and smooth back with a large-tooth comb. Then rumple up the texture with your fingers. Finally, rub a pea-sized amount of holding agent--we like the Oribe Rough Luxury Molding Wax--between your hands and into your hair.
Have long hair? Keep it out of the way and polished-looking by segmenting it into a ponytail with elastics.
Center or side-part the hair, then fasten it into a low ponytail at the base of the neck. Place elastics at equal intervals down the length of the hair, being sure to use a snag-free band to secure.
A carelessly swept-back topknot adds a youthful and fresh vibe to an otherwise formal look.
It seems counterintuitive, but the first step to getting this pulled-back look is to add volume. Spray dry hair with a lightweight thickening agent, let it air dry for a moment, then pull hair back to the crown and loosely fasten with hairpins. Pull a few strands loose along the hairline.

Slightly side-parted hair is über-flattering when paired with loose, cascading waves.
Go with a wide-barrel curling iron. Take two-inch square sections of hair from the hairline to the crown, and twist them in alternate directions around the iron. Be sure to leave the bottom third of the section as is, so that it stays straight.
