At Stella McCartney’s 2015 Resort presentation in New York last week, models sported the most perfect loose, languid waves. If you’re among the roughly one percent of people whose hair air-dries like this with zero need for styling, you can stop reading right now. For the rest of us, here’s how to nail the “soft, simple 1970’s style waves” created by Aveda guest artist Frank Rizzieri.

“To create a barrier against humidity and to fight frizz, I first applied new Aveda Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight creme to the models’ hair,” Rizzieri says.
“We then added a little texture with Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep and blew it in with a diffuser.”
“After creating a gentle center part, I tucked hair behind the ears and added a barely-there wave to the ends.” Rizzieri used a 1 1/2-inch double barrel curling iron to create texture.
“Finally, I tousled the hair with Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil for extra shine.”
