Go through with a curling iron to tighten random curls then tie your mane into a bun. Conceal the hair tie with a floral scarf and your bun is ready to make an entrance at brunch.

2. Pinned Back

Up your curls' moisture and bounce via a couple squirts of OUAI Curl Jelly then pin it back with 3-4 bobby pins.



3. After Hours Snatched Ponytail

Use OUAI Finishing Crème to slick hair down while spraying OUAI Medium Hair Spray as you brush the hair back into a snatched ponytail. Let the curls in the back do their air-dried thing then fluff with a teasing comb for volume.

The on-the-go girl's holy grail 'do is equal parts high bun, equal parts undone. Leave out curly pieces in the front for a flirty, romantic feel.


5. Ribbons on Ribbons

A swift way to tame stubborn curls—tie a bubble ponytail with chic graphic ribbons.

A petite braid packs a pretty punch when paired with au naturel curls. Glaze the braid with a OUAI Anti-Frizz Sheet for shine.

Wear the quintessential festival spheres during the day then sleep in them overnight to awake with relaxed curls. 



9. Braided Top Knot

You know the drill: Put half your hair up then adorn with expensive-looking hardware. Watch our tutorial to get the exact look.
