Proof: At the spring 2010 shows, Versace showed rumpled curls, while the hair at Proenza Schouler had a beachy texture. More proof: In the October issue of Allure, hairstylist Luigi Murenu-a runway regular-created six different versions of waves and curls in the story "Making Waves." Allure editors are no exception when it comes to wave love. These are our current product faves:

Privé Curl Activating Créme plus L'Oréal Professionnel Textureline Infinium Hairspray 2: "I scrunch two squirts of this product into wet, clean hair, and then air-dry. The cream has a bit of tackiness to it, so it gives my waves texture and hold. Once my hair is mostly dry, I mist the L'Oréal Professionnel around the crown, lifting and tossing the roots with my fingers as I spray for nice, non-helmet-head volume." -Amy Keller Laird, beauty director

Top 11 Tricks for Gorgeous Hair Everyday.

Bumble and Bumble Calming Creme for Coarse Curls: "It gets rid of the ugly flyaways and keeps my curls intact without leaving my hair looking crunchy or greasy." -Alyssa Kolsky Hertzig, beauty news editor

Blow Wave Maker Light Twisting Lotion: "This is my all-time favorite. It's a serum-y gel that gives the perfect amount of hold--I can run my fingers though my hair. It works with my natural wavy texture to get it to go the extra mile to perfect beachy waves." -Kayleigh Donahue, editorial assistant

Living Proof Wave Shaping, Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray: "I spritz this all over my dry, chemically straightened hair before curling it. Since it's an anti-humidity spray, it creates waves that are frizz-free. It's also lightweight and dries fast so my hair doesn't sizzle under the curling iron." -Jessica Prince, editorial assistant
