How-To: Tousled Fairy Tale Waves

Elizabeth Jakaitis | December 4, 2014 | 11:40 AM

Miami-based celebrity stylist and owner of Femme Coiffure Salon Raphael Reboh shares the products and steps he uses to create these fairy tale tresses.


1. To achieve this style, wash hair or simply refresh hair with Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo.

2. Next, Mist hair with Rene Furterer Vegetal Styling Mousse to add a roughed-up texture and give the waves you're about to create even more staying power. Bonus: When you use a texturizing mousse, you can get away with just creating waves on four or five random sections of hair, since they'll blend in nicely with the texture you created.

3. Now start adding the waves: Pick up a small section of hair by the ends and twirl it just like you would swing a mini jump rope. Keep twirling until your hair looks like a Twizzler—but don't let it go just yet. Coil the section into a mini bun and give it one or two scrunches. Now you can release. Repeat on four or five random sections of hair.

4. Now create a side part and twist a front section of hair from forehead to behind scalp and clasp with a pretty jeweled accent.
