2. Once your hair is dry, part it on the side and wind strands around a tapered curling iron, such as Runway Series by Rsession Tools Tapered Curling Iron ($50; rsessiontools.com).
3. Gather all of your hair to one side and separate into three even sections. Starting a few inches away from your nape, braid them together. "Weave it tightly, then go back and gently loosen the plait with your fingers," says Jenny Cho, a celebrity stylist in Los Angeles who regularly works with Amanda Seyfried. "The more disheveled the braid, the more romantic it looks."
