She may keep us laughing on The Mindy Project (on FOX tonight at 9:30 PM EST!), but Mindy Kaling’s loose waves are guaranteed to bring serious glamour. And although her hairstylist Luke Chamberlain drew vintage inspiration from 1970s-era Bianca Jagger, the bedhead texture is timeless and easy to recreate. Just follow these tips!

1. Chamberlain applied the Matrix Biolage Volumizing Mousse ($16; for locations) to bring out Kaling's natural wave, then wrapped small sections of hair in a figure-eight pattern around a curling iron.

2. While her strands were still warm, he placed them in one-inch velcro rollers to set.

3. Once cool, Chamberlain used a brush to loosen the curls and spritzed on Matrix Amplify Hairspray ($15; for locations) to finish.
