Get the look:
1. Start with freshly washed and conditioned hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner.

2. Prep hair by applying a dollop of Wella Professionals Velvet Amplifier to wet hair followed by a dime size about of Wella Professionals Oil Reflections and blow-dry.

3. Part hair in the center, and use a curling wand to create loose waves in the hair by wrapping 3-inch sections of hair around the wand and releasing after about 20 seconds. Lightly mist hair with Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray.

4. Take a 2-inch section of hair on the right side of your head from right behind the ear and braid hair, securing the end of the braid with a clear rubber band. Repeat on the other side.

5. Take the rest of hair and braid back, securing with an elastic band, then twist into a loose chignon at the nape of the neck, pinning in place.

6. Next, loosen the two remaining braids, pulling the hair out a little bit with your fingers.

7. Take the braid on the left side and bring it over the top of your head to the right side, creating the first part of the halo, and pin in place behind the right ear. Repeat with the other braid.

8. Finish the look with Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray to keep in place all night long.
