How To: Sky Ferreira's hair style in her "Obsession" video

Celeb stylist Rob Talty was given the task of making sultry music artist Sky Ferreira look... well...sultrier. Impossible, you say? Check out how he gave her voluminous, beachy waves that you can create at home:
To prep hair, Taltry started with Neutrogena Triple Moisture shampoo and conditioner. While hair was wet, he applied equal parts Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream and René Furterer Vegetal styling mousse to hair. (The mousse is for body, while the Moroccanoil will reduce frizz).

Next he blew hair dry with the T3 Tourmaline Evolution dryer. BUT WAIT! This part is a big deal for gals with curly or wavy hair. The trick here is that he scrunched the hair upwards, rather than pulling on it, while using a diffuser to dry the hair. Curly haired gals should keep this in the back of their brains: scrunching up is good. Pulling down is bad! Also, the diffuser evenly distributes air flow around the curls, instead of obnoxiously blasting hot air all over the place.
When hair was just about dry Taltry used René Furterer Vegetal finishing spray and touched up the face-framing layers in Sky's hair.

Then he used a bit of Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with oat milk to add even more volume to the hair. Afterwards, he used a 3/4 inch curling iron to create loose waves. He directed the curling iron away from the face, and released the hold on the hair after a few seconds to create waves rather than tight curls.

He topped it all off with some L'oreal Elnett Satin hairspray and Sky possessed Obsession-worthy hair.
