Lauren Bacall

Who doesn't love actress Lauren Bacall? Her waves are a classic hair reference. Here's how you can re-create her look above.

1. Start with clean hair that is 70% dry and spray styling lotion from roots to ends. The styling lotion will keep your hair soft while also giving it a little bit of structure, so it holds the style you'll create with these adorable strawberry sponge hair rollers.

2. Divide your hair into 2" square sections and, starting with the back of your hair, wrap each section around the sponge roller. Just like with rag curls, if you don't have time to sleep on them, you can just blow dry them with a dryer and diffuser for about 10 minutes.

3. Once your hair is dry, apply some dry shampoo to the roots at the crown of your head and blow dry the top and sides with a brush to smooth and straighten it out a little bit. The styling lotion, rollers, and dry shampoo will give your hair volume and texture so it won't lay flat when you blow it straight.

4. Lastly, pin half of your hair back and tie it off with a green ribbon. If I was still in Paris, I would have bought a vintage one one at my favorite trimmings store - Ultra Mod.
