Anybody know how they get their hair like this?

texturizer mostly, he has a naturally looser curl pattern. you might get lucky with a braid out. dampen hair, put hair in a bunch of big plaits, allow to set overnight, take out in the morning.

I'm 3C and my hair will look like that if I fine tooth comb and brush it (not recommended for overall hair health) and then braid it. I'm essentially taking out my curl pattern and putting in a wavy one.

I don't do it now, but I use to do it when I was a kid. Your hair does have to be loose enough to pull straight. It might not be possible without heat if you're 4B or 4C.
Thanks I think I'll try the comb/brush braid out. I'm mixed, Italian mother and African father, so my hair forms an afro but it is really soft and much looser so I think it'll still work. I'm not sure really what my hair type is yet I'm still new here. :/
Any tips on doing a braid out?
Oh and did you do it with soaking wet, damp, or dry hair?

Yeah it sounds like you have the perfect hair for it. Your hair does have to have some poof/texture. If not it will be flat when you take it out of the braids.

Wet hair or damp hair is the best IMO.

Yup it does and thanks a lot. Two more questions sorry. Should I do a lot of braids, or just like 4? And twists or braids, like which is better for the loose look they have? Thank you so much u can't wait to try. (:

I'd do medium braids. Not so small your hair looks crimped, and it will take forever, but not too fat cause the waves will loosen after a couple hours.

So braids about the size of a woman's thumb.

As for braids versus twists...I've never done twists a day in my life, so I'm not sure.
