The baseball cap has always been around, but the blue leather takes it off the dirt mound and into any event where you want to stand out. We loved the idea of pairing the smallness of the structured cap with a wild burst of curls. If you already have ringlets for days, you can play up the texture and snap on a cap. As for everybody else, ahead are a few simple steps to help you fake it.

Start by spritzing your ends with a dry texturizing spray, like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. Then, part your hair, starting from the nape of your neck, into one-inch sections.
Use a ¼” wand and wrap an equal section of hair around the wand. You don’t want the hair to sit flat on the rod. Rather, “let it twist, so that the curl pattern isn’t so perfect,” says hairstylist Laura Polko.
Randomly — and frequently — switch up the direction of the curls to break up the continuity of the waves. Imperfection is perfect here.
Once you’re done curling all around your head, pull apart the curls with your fingers, starting from your roots to your ends. Then, take a brush and backcomb random large sections of hair until you get the volume and texture you want. “You’re looking for frizz, here!” says Polko.
