This effortless hairstyle requires minimal effort and is ideal for those second or third-day hair when you want quick waves while multitasking or simply having a lazy day.

To achieve lazy curls, start by pulling your hair up into a ponytail. Next, spray small one-inch sections of hair with water to slightly dampen them. Wrap each section around your fingers to create a curl and secure it against your scalp with a clip. Once your hair air dries completely, unpin the curls and take down your ponytail. The result? Gorgeous, bouncy curls without any hassle.
