When the occasion (or your timeframe) doesn’t permit a complex hairstyle, a tousled, effortless wave is every girl’s go-to. But even this relatively simple style can be improved or varied by using different products and techniques. Perfect for medium to long hair, a tousled waved hairstyle can be textured and beachy, just-out-of-bed sexy, or flowing and bohemian – it’s all up to how you style it.

After the break are 5 hair video tutorials for tousled waves. The gist is often quite similar, but the products and steps vary through each.
