Spirals, ringlets, coils… textured hair is always on-trend. But we especially love Tika Sumpter’s tight waves! The fact that they start after almost a foot of straight roots makes this style unique and modern. The best part is, they style is super-easy to do at home.

First, spritz strands with a thermal setting spray to protect tresses from heat damage (we like Nexxus Heat Protection Spray, $15.99, folica.com). Next, starting about a quarter of the way down from your roots, wind small sections of hair around a 3/8″ inch barrel curling iron (try Hot Tools Professional Spring Curling Iron 3/8″ inch, $23.95, folica.com). When finished, run a dollop of shine serum through waves (try Keratin Complex Shine, $16, amazon.com).
