Inspired by fairy tales like Brothers Grimm and Hansel and Gretel, Lela Rose’s Fall 2013 show featured mythical, magical-looking hair down the runways. Director of Education for Ted Gibson Beauty, Devin Toth, constructed the looks with a fairytale finish, while keeping the process of creating the hair style fanciful as well. To keep the fairytale hair grounded and ethereal, they added a barrette to the top of the hair style and loosely pulled out a few pieces of hair in the front.


STEP 1: “We started by prepping the hair with Build It blow drying agent at the roots for volume and gave the models a quick round brush blowout. Next we took large sections of hair and tightly wrapped them in Figure 8s around rods made from tin foil,” says Toth.

STEP 2: “Next we flatironed each rod. The metal conducts the heat and it set the hair into a beautiful imperfect ethereal wave. We sprayed the setting hair with a strong hold hairspray.”

STEP 3: “Then we took out the set, back combed the hair and gently pull it back with our fingers into a twist above the nape of the neck. We then tucked it up and secured it with bobby pins.”
