We all know it takes an army for celebrities to “wake up like this,” but one trend that’s gaining traction is undone, tousled hair that’s essentially, frizzy.
For what feels like forever, smooth, glossy waves, slick curls and near-perfect buns have dominated hair, but a shift is happening — one that involves undone texture, natural movement and just the right amount of flyaways.
Bryce Scarlett — the man behind styles belonging to Margot Robbie, Camile Morrone, Kaia Gerber, Hailey Bieber and Laura Harrier — is one of the most influential purveyors. So often, he works with natural texture, enhancing movement rather than manipulating it, adding in soft bends and kinks for an undone finish (as if it had dried that way naturally).
If you’re someone who’s permanently attached to your hot tools, consider this a sign to put them down and either air dry, or just do minimal styling. As for frizz and flyaways? Let them be. The end result is natural, relaxed, sexy and most importantly, easy to manage.

Hair by Sam McKnight Sundaze Beach Spray, $50. SHOP NOW
The key to movement is all in the prep work, which is why we love Sam McKnight’s just-launched version of salt spray. Unlike crunchy iterations, this one is softening, but still adds just enough grit to hair to encourage waves, curls and bends.
Oribe Dry texture spray, $49. shop now
Once hair is dry, a texturizing mist will work to dial up volume, add grip and boost lift at the roots. This iconic formula from Oribe also smells incredible.
Bumble & Bumble Surf Wave Foam, $29. SHOP NOW
If you happen to have fine, limp hair, a lightweight mousse will plump up individual hair strands, improving volume and grit. This formula from Bumble & Bumble gives hair that post-swim, salty feeling. This also works to separate and define movement, ensuring the hair holds and style without looking too “perfect.”
