If a head of lush beach waves was just as much a summer staple as your bikini and Ray Bans, then you’ll love Bridgit Mendler‘s take on the look that’s just right for Fall! Here, the teen actress shows off her long, dimensional blonde locks styled in a clean, slightly more defined wave than what you’d call a “beach-y wave”—Bridgit’s version says “let’s grab a pumpkin spice latte downtown,” rather than “I just spent the day in the sun and sand.” (Next year, ladies, next year!) It’s a fun and feminine style that also happens to be perfect for daytime or date night—and we love versatility.
Cop the look by applying texturizing mousse before blowing hair out with a round brush; wrap sections around a medium-barrel curling iron, treating it like you would a styling wand. Wrapping hair in alternating directions will give you that playful movement.
And more style points go to Bridgit for pairing the ‘do with a leopard pashmina and a bright, bold print blouse—everything is right on point for the Fall season.
