Get Leighton Meester's Tousled Hair Courtesy Of Herbal Essences

She may play Gossip Girl's preppy bitch du jour, but Leighton Meester's off-the-set look is constantly evolving—from red carpet glam to sexy rocker chic—placing her unequivocally in the one-to-watch category. But Meester's latest role as global hair ambassador for Herbal Essences put her in stylist Charles Baker Strahan hands, transforming her mane into bouncy waves with a sexy finish. Want to recreate her look? Here are the easy, how-to steps:
1. Apply Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Mousse to wet hair to build support and help hair hold the wave.
2. Blow hair out using a round brush to make your roots smooth
3. Next, use a diffuser--tilt hair to one side, then the other to build up extra body
4. Wrap select pieces of hair around a curling iron to integrate different textures into the look
5. Finish with Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Hair Spray
