Make the Halo
Cut the rose stems with the wire cutter so they’re all about 3 inches long. Toss the stems you cut off – you won’t be using these.
Measure around your head with the tape measure where you want to wear the halo. Add 1 inch to this measurement and cut a piece of 20-gauge floral wire this length.
Shape the wire into a circle, overlap the ends by ½ inch and twist them together tightly with the pliers. Go back and shape the wire with your fingers until it’s a nicely shaped circle, but don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be perfect. The roses will cover the wire.
Place one rose along the wire circle so the stem sits right along the wire. Unwrap some 24-gauge wire and start wrapping the stem super tight just under the rose blossom. Keep wrapping until you get to the end of the stem but don’t clip the wrapping wire.
Add another rose to the wire circle, snugging it right up against the first rose. Grab the wrapping wire and wrap this rose stem to the wire circle just as you wrapped the first rose. Keep going just like this, adding roses and wrapping them around the wire circle, until you fill the whole circle up with roses and you get back to the starting point.
Clip off the wrapping wire to leave a 2-inch tail and wrap it tightly to finish the halo.
Do the ‘Do
Squirt a smidgen of styling mousse into your hands and apply it evenly throughout your damp mane. Work it through well from roots to tips.
Blow out your hair using the round vented brush and your hands until your hair is completely dry.
Grab the curling iron and add some big, soft curls. Soft, romantic curls are just the right touch for a rose halo. Keep curling until you’ve got some bouncy curls going on all over your head.
Finger-comb your hair lightly to arrange the curls. Perch the halo on your head right where you want it. If you want to ensure the halo doesn’t budge, fasten it with a few hair clips or bobby pins.
Spritz your hair lightly with hairspray to set the style.
