Fact: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have the best hair. There’s just something about the twins’ messy, beach waves that looks so laid back and effortless. Keyword being “looks.” There are countless articles on the Interwebs about how to get their hair because it’s actually not at all easy to DIY.

Well, we finally know their secret trick for getting “Olsen hair.”

Celebrity hairstylist Mark Townsend, who’s been working with the girls since New York Minute (whoa, throwback!), revealed to PEOPLE that he swears by using a toothbrush on MK & A’s tresses. Say what?!

Yep, just spray some extra-hold hairspray (like this one by Tresemme) on a boar bristle toothbrush and you’re an Olsen! Townsend says, “What separates an Olsen from a woman leaving the gym is the details.” Here are the details:

Swissco Tooth Brush Tortoise Natural Bristle Hard, 3-Count Pack ($11.39)

TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Aerosol Hairspray ($4.79, down from $5.99)
