How-To: Nitsan Raiter's Shakira-Inspired Waves at Coachella

If you still can't create flat iron waves to save your life but are obsessed with OUAI Crush Nitsan Raiter's boho-chic waves from Coachella, we found a solution.

Genius, right? He also used a regular flat iron to wave select pieces but if the flat iron life isn't for you, stick with the waver. Keep reading for details on which one Danny used plus the OUAI products that perfected the textured festival look
