Star of Once Upon a Time, Jennifer Morrison looks like a fairy princess in this style. Pairing her long golden blonde locks with a braided bang and tumbling waves, her hair has a beautiful, ethereal quality. Not too flashy, but chic, alluring and charming, it’s a perfect style for a weekend date night: The braid artfully keeps hair off the face, exposing the features, the color contrasts her eyes for a piercing effect, and the waves add the romantic appeal, completing the eye-catching look. Learn how to create it in the notes.
Step: If you want to go golden blonde, consult with your colorist on the best options for you. Depending on your natural hair color level and hair history, the service could be a high lift blonde, a bleach and tone, or a head of highlights.
Step: For styling, cocktail styling whip with curl enhancer and work through damp hair, roots to ends. Rough dry the hair with your dryer, using your hands to lift hair up, toss around, twist and swirl. This creates soft movement and natural texture.
Step: Separate a two-inch strand from the top in the front. Coat hands with texture paste for grip and hold and twine the section together, creating a two-strand braid that goes back on the bias. Tie off the braid and pin into the style.
Step: If you want or need a bit more wave down the sides, mist hair with refresh dry conditioner and use curling iron or wand to make more definitive ‘C’ shaped swirls.
