Lady Gaga posted a video to her Instagram feed showing us how the hair team at Marc Jacobs AW16 created those amazing fingerwaves designed by Redken creative director Guido. WARNING: This is not easy, and you may need a friend to help, but it's so worth it in the end. Here is EXACTLY how Guido instructed his whole team to get the look.

'The look is a total top-to-bottom, fun, crazy, Marc Jacobs girl. I created finger waves, an old-fashioned technique that was popular in the 20s, but I modernized the look by leaving the ends of the hair alone. I used gel, which we finger-waved into the hair, and then set with strong hold Redken hairspray. It is a very set look but something that could be translated to what you might see on the street. For example, if a girl wanted to do one simple finger wave and then leave the rest of her hair natural.' – Guido

How To Get The Look

1.  Using a comb, create a clean center part on dry hair. Starting one inch above the ear on one side of the head, use the comb to create a horizontal section. Clip hair on the top half of the hairline section to keep out of the way.

2.  On the horizontal bottom section, use fingers to generously apply Redken Hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting hair gel to area beneath the created hairline.

3.  Repeat step two in sections one inch apart, gradually making your way toward the top center part. Repeat on the opposite side of the head.

4.  Apply more sulpting hair gel to center parting to emphasize it and add shine. Apply gel to a comb and press hair down on either side of the parting to flatten.

5.  Starting at the hairline at the crown of the head, simultaneously use fingers and a comb to push hair up, creating a finger wave effect. Ensure hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting hair gel is covering fingers and comb at all times.

6. Continue the wave effect throughout the section, using fingers to hold down hair while the comb brushes downwards on either side. Use pins to hold each wave in place.

7.  After completing each section, liberally spray Redken Forceful 23 super strength hairspray at a close distance for a lasting hold.

8.  Once you’ve reached the top of each ear, stop the finger wave effect and leave remaining hair untouched and natural.

9.  Gently blow dry hair to dry and harden gel and hold shape.
