Watch: Gigi Hadid's Hairstylist Explains How to Get Messy "Bend" Waves

As the preferred hairstylist of Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, and Poppy Delevingne (just to namedrop a select few), Laura Polko essentially has the Hollywood monopoly on cool-girl hair—and right now, that means foregoing too-polished, wide-barreled waves in favor of something a little more effortless and a little less "done." In fact, Polko doesn't even technically categorize her textured, surfer-esque locks as "waves"—they're bends.

And the best part is that they don't just look more low-maintenance; this texture really is a breeze to throw together. Just arm yourself with some dry shampoo (Polko recommends Aussie Total Miracle, $10) and a curling iron (you won't need it that much, promise), and you're minutes away from the effortlessly undone look that's been dominating your Instagram feed lately. Watch the video above to get Polko's full tutorial.
