Is there a sexier hairstyle than loose, textured waves? Recreate the most smouldering hairstyle known to man in 5 minutes flat with one of my favourite products.

According to polls, wavy tousled hair gets more swipes on Tinder, while my straightener-obsessed girlfriends always get more compliments when they let their waves hang au-naturel.

No matter what the season or the occasion, gently tousled hair always looks sophisticated and on point.

But what if your hair is poker-straight or on the more ringletty side of curly?

I have a product that will solve your woes.

KMS Hairplay Playable Texture Spray is my go-to for building texture and definition in any curls or waves. Simply spray individual sections of dry hair just like you would with a hair spray or setting/heat protecting spray.
This gives great hold without adding any weight, boasts instant texture without the tackiness and most of all, protects your strands from heat.

I’m all about multi-use products and this texture spray is endless… because you can also use it as a finishing product. For instance, I lightly spray it over brushed curls to help achieve hold and moveable definition to the edges of the waves – preventing them from flopping or blowing away the minute you walk out the door!

There is absolutely no stickiness to the multi-use beauty, so it can be brushed out and re-styled at any moment, or even better, slept in for the ultimate morning after effect.

In fact, imagine layering it over natural beach or bedhead hair for an instantly textured, and lived in vibe… hello sexpot! The key here is to slightly loosen the hair by raking your fingers through it first and giving it a light shake in-between sprays so the product has a chance to move through the hair evenly.

Apart from its versatility, what I love most about this product is that it doesn’t weigh the hair down or make it look product-laden… a mean feat when you’re achieving that lived-in consistency. In fact, it actually gives hair volume and depth that can be touched, flipped and settled into your natural style.

Here’s how-to achieve your own fuss-free, tousled hairdo that will become your ultimate seduction weapon.

Step 1. Tong or style your hair, spaying individual sections of DRY hair using the KMS Hairplay Playable Texture Spray… remembering that less is more.

Step 2. Wait for the hair to cool down (or dry, if you want to use your own natural wave) before you brush/rake it through with your fingers to style and mould the desired shape.

Step 3. Spray Texture Spray again, focusing on mid-lengths and ends to create that enviable texture, definition and hold!

TIP: Although it’s not a smoothing product, you can run it through the top strands of your hair to remove any excess fly-aways without adding extra oil.
