The genius trick to getting Kim Kardashian's perfect wavy hair

Turns out Kim's signature effortless waves aren't exactly *effortless. They are, however, super-easy to achieve. Kim's hairstylist Jen Atkin shows you exactly how to get her dreamy, beachy waves in a new video on Kim's app.

On Kim's damp hair, Atkin starts by pinning her bangs out of the way. She then slides duck bill clips (long, slim clips) horizontally in Kim's hair and stacks them vertically about 2 inches apart.

Atkin then pulls the hair between the clips out a little bit to create the shape of waves in the hair.

After Kim's hair is set with clips, Atkin dries her whole head with a blow dryer until the hair is about 75 percent dry. Then she takes out the clips and loosely gathers the ends of the hair in the palm of her hand (like her hand is a diffuser) and blows them dry a little more while the hair is lightly scrunched.

Since Kim has longer bangs and fringe around her face, Atkin then twists the bangs around her finger and blows them dry while they're still twisted.

Who knew duck bill clips would be so handy?
