Camila Cabello's Stylist Shares Exactly How to Get Her Y2K-Inspired Waves

One trend that keeps gaining momentum? Y2K everything. While Y2K has been on the fashion scene for a while now (hello, cargo pants and low-rise jeans), it's been a bit slower to permeate beauty. Now, however, we have concrete proof that Y2K has taken hold of the beauty world and is not letting go anytime soon.

Case in point: Camila Cabello's latest hair look. While the star kept it simple with soft waves, she added an aughts-era edge to her look by framing her face with small, neon blue and green butterfly clips.

The resulting look is the perfect combination of fun and sweet. It can be really hard to create soft waves at home with traditional curling tools (I've tried many times with varying degrees of success), but Cabello's stylist, Sarah Potempa, has a trick up her sleeve for flawless beachy waves every time.

Potempa is the founder of The Beachwaver Co., a haircare company that's best known for its Beachwaver, a rotating curling iron that's meant to help you achieve beachy waves. Potempa used this and a few other products on Cabello to achieve this drool-worthy style—keep reading for all the details.
