Steal My Beachy Waves: Chrissy Teigen

Are you feeling the winter blues yet? No matter where you live, the temperature will begin to drop pretty rapidly in the next few months but that doesn't mean you have to give up your hot summer looks!

Master stylist Raphael Reboh, of Femme Coiffure Hair Spa in Miami Beach, Florida would like to help ladies score beachy waves, like his celebrity client Chrissy Teigan all year round. And I mean, HELLO!! She is a stunning model who snagged singer/songwriter John Legend!

Wavy hair lasts longer in the winter, it is a no-fuss, heatless style that can last up to three days, if you follow Raphael's tips:

1. Start with clean, damp hair and use a light serum before blow-drying

2. If your hair is naturally wavy, use a low-medium setting and scrunch the hair upward to assist in forming the shape/If your hair is coarse or straightened, blow dry the hair completely and use a frizz-fighting heat protectant

3. Use a curling iron or curling wand on medium-to-high setting by sectioning the hair in 1 to 1.5 inch sections, wrapping the hair upward on the iron and holding in place for less than 3 seconds for thinner textures and 5 seconds for thicker textures

4. Flip the hair upside down and mist a light holding spray while scrunching the hair upward

1. Mist the roots with a nourishing dry shampoo
2. Section the hair in 2 to 4 sections (depending on hair thickness)
3. Wind the hair in the direction of the wave pattern (should resemble a dreadlock)
4. Place one finger near the scalp (aiming no higher than the tip of your ear) and coil the hair tightly around by placing the knot as close to the scalp as possible
5. Tuck the tip of the hair under the knot
6. Secure with a few loose hair pins or for maximum hold, use a ponytail holder
7. Repeat the steps until all of the hair is knotted and secured
8. Sleep with a silk bonnet or silk pillowcase to prevent frizz and friction

1. Shower first and remove air dampness to prevent flattening the hair
2. Remove hairpins and holders
3. Lightly tousle the rolled hair downward to recreate your preferred style
4. Lightly finger comb the hair to separate sections
5. If you sweat in your sleep, add a quick mist of dry shampoo to the roots
