To get the look, prepare damp hair with a wave-enhancing spray, like Charlotte Ronson A Perfect Mess Beach Hair ($20), and then blow-dry the hair with your fingers to create a disheveled effect. Next, gather the lower back portion of the hair and flat iron it to create a sleek finish. Gather this section to create a side braid, starting around the midshaft. Tip: to make the style more interesting, braid a few pieces to start and then twist at the end for a ropelike effect.
