Prep and texturize: "Achieving the undone quality of Zoe's hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways," said Mara who prepped the style by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and add texture. For added volume, Mara suggests spraying roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

Secure the style: To achieve Zoe's perfect natural wavy texture, Mara loosely braided her hair and let it dry. Once the hair was completely dry she took out the braids and broke up the waves by running her fingers through Zoe's hair. The next step is to gently tease the crown to create a bit of height. "Next pull the hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, allowing one section of hair to overlap the other and pin it in place with bobby pins," says Mara. "Continue this all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a ponytail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look. "

Polish and perfect: To finish the look, Mara sprayed a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray in an even, all around motion.
