The secret to Gisele's signature strands are her cut: a few face framing layers and thinned out ends make her waves look perfect, not prom-y.

You don't need to be blessed with beach-y textured hair to master the strands of the supermodel set. What you do need: the right hair cut and a high-quality iron, says celebrity stylist Harry Josh, the man behind Gisele's mane. "The hair cut is really indicative of how that wave pattern looks natural," he says. Keep layers long with a few around your face and in the back only, and ask your stylist to thin out the ends so they're never thick and blocky. At home, use a curling rod that heats evenly so your waves remain in tact even after brushing through the curls. The result: "when you wrap each section around the iron the end becomes more of a spindle as opposed to a big chunk," reveals Josh, "and it's those thin, spindle-y tips that make your hair look more lived in, more real, and like you never curled it at all."
