Chances are you probably own a ceramic brush like this one. And it's likely that you have no clue how to use it. Don't worry, you're not alone.

Ceramic brushes are a godsend when trying to perfect an at-home blowout....

...Or if you're headed to an awards show à la Chloe Grace Moretz. The 17-year-old actress attended the 2014 Teen Choice Awards sporting tousled waves with a slightly bedhead texture.

Luckily, Moretz's stylist, Gregory Russell, broke down the style into easy steps. First, he used a ceramic brush to blow dry her hair before parting it down the middle. Using the tool helps the air to flow evenly from the hair dryer so strands don't get fried or damaged.

Russell then used a 1 and 1/4 inch curling iron to create "effortless" waves, curling in random directions. For a more lived-in look, loosen up locks with your hands and spritz hair with a dry shampoo like the one by Klorane. Finish by applying a protective styling cream on hair ends and setting with medium hold hairspray to minimize frizz.
