Straight hair is Jennifer Aniston's signature style, but ICYDK, the actress has natural waves—and they were recently out to play. If you want to copy her beachy look, you can head to her hairstylist's Instagram for the full details. (

In an Instagram post, Aniston's longtime stylist Chris McMillan provided step-by-step instructions to Aniston's hair look for the The Morning Show premiere, complete with the products he used.

The first step involves a genius trick for anyone who wants to air-dry their hair without having it look air-dried. In McMillan's post, he said he allowed Aniston's hair to dry naturally first, then he "touched up minimally [by] blow-drying the roots for direction and touching up random pieces with a wave iron." Specifically, he used a Dyson hairdryer and a GHD iron, likely the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (Buy It, $400, amazon.com) and GHD Curve Classic Wave Wand (Buy It, $199, sephora.com).

After the strategic heat styling, McMillan said he layered on a trio of styling products. First, he used a detangling spray from Drunk Elephant—yes, you read that right. The skin-care brand is apparently branching out into hair, and McMillan didn't keep it a secret. In a comment on McMillan's post, the brand confirmed that the detangling spray is coming down the pipeline, writing that it's "not available quite yet!" For now, you can try Unite 7Seconds Leave-In Detangler (Buy It, $30, amazon.com), an anti-frizz detangler that McMillan previously turned Aniston on to.

Fortunately, the rest of the styling products that went into Aniston's look are already available. McMillan used Harklinikken Leave-In Hair Hydrating Crème (Buy It, $56, amazon.com), a hydrating cream that protects hair from heat and sun exposure. Next up: Shu Uemura Shape Paste Hair Pomade (Buy It, $39, shuuemuraartofhair-usa.com), a pomade that creates texture and has been used by celebrity hairstylist Adir Abergel on Reese Witherspoon's hair. Finally, McMillan used Kérastase Nutritive Sérum Oléo-Relax (Buy It, $43, amazon.com), a frizz-fighting serum that's Megan Markle-approved, per Refinery 29. (
