Tinsley Mortimer's tousled hairstyle features a perfectly placed braid swept across the front.
Step 1: Spritz a two-inch section of dry hair with styling spray. Starting about five inches away from your scalp, wrap sections around an extra-large curling iron. Hold in place for a few seconds to set the curl, then release. Repeat, alternating directions of the curl until all hair is wavy.
Step 2: Run fingers through hair to break up the sections and coax fullness.
Step 3: Take a random one inch section along your part at the top of your head and create a 3-strand braid. Pinning it securely to the side of your head, allow for the braid to sit above your loose strands as you finger style your tresses into place.
