    If you switch on the computer holding down the 'alt' option key, next to the CMD button on the keyboard. Then you can select OSX.

    Then once you're in OS X you'll want to go to System Preferences > Startup Disk and choose "Mac OS X, 10.x.x on Macintosh HD." That way it'll automatically load OS X.

    If you installed the BootCamp drivers in Windows, you can also choose your startup volume in the BootCamp tray icon [in Windows].
