Marisa Tomei harnesses her wavy strands and teased roots with pinned-back sections on top.
Step 1: Start with dry, wavy hair and isolate a halo section of hair on top of your head.
Step 2: Take a two-inch section within the halo and hold it straight up. Use a tight-tooth comb and backcomb in short strokes along the back of the section toward your scalp. Repeat with all sections within the halo.
Step 3: Use a wide-tooth comb and smooth the hair on the surface of the halo section as you direct it all back. Use several bobby pins to secure the section in back and then mist with hairspray to finish.
