Recreate it: Here, Syesha takes advantage of her hair's natural texture. If your hair is similar, style it while wet or damp with a lightweight holding gel like Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel. You can also get similar results on straightened hair by wet-setting on small perm rods and drying under a hood or bonnet dryer. Once curls are dry, do not comb or brush. Finger fluff if needed and pin up each side, while letting the front hang down.
