A new episode of Modern Family airs tonight! Will you be watching? Second to her spitfire personality and her risky style choices, Sarah Hyland’s penchant for an always-perfect hairstyle is another reason we relate to her on-screen persona Haley Dunphy.

When she isn't working a tousled braid, Haley usually opts for a soft, lived-in wave, and got the details from the show's key hairstylist Jessica Elbaum on how to get Hyland's signature look. Whether or not the star is working second-day strands, Elbaum usually begins by dampening Hyland's hair and juggling the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Dryer ($250; with the Anti Gravity 3" Brush ($20; for a fresh blowout.

Once Hyland's hair is completely dry, Elbaum then applies a veil of the Oribe Superfine Hairspray ($33; to form a solid base for the style, and follows by alternating between the 1.75" Bodywaver ($149; and the 1.25" Singlepass Twirl ($99; sure to wind sections of hair in opposing directions to avoid creating a uniform sausage curl. With each ringlet in place, Elbaum picks up the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray ($22; and applies a blast of the product at the star's roots to pump up the volume, and as a finishing touch, a few drops of the Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil ($49; through Hyland's ends imparts a glossy, camera-ready shine.
