Lucky for us, replicating her tousled looked doesn’t require a full glam squad, or even heat!

When it comes to beachy waves, Ashley Benson has it down. But the Health cover star doesn't just roll out of bed that way: “I envy the people who have the best hair,” she says. “I’m like, 'What!?' No, I have to work on it.” Lucky for us, replicating her tousled looked doesn’t require a full glam squad, or even heat! Here’s how she does it.

Step 1: Wash your hair. Ashley uses Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo ($5, target.com) and Conditioner ($5, target.com).

Step 2: After you get out of the shower, brush your hair, then braid two pigtails and secure them with small scrunchies (to avoid creating dents at the ends).

Step 4: If your hair tends to get frizzy, you can rub a few drops of rose essential oil down the braids to help keep it smooth.

Step 5: Wait 30 minutes to two hours before you undo the braids. (They should still be completely wet.) Then let your hair air dry.

Step 6: To make those effortless-looking waves last between washes, apply some dry shampoo, like Dove Refresh Plus Care Dry Shampoo ($5, target.com).
