Video: How to finger-wave your hair
By Lena on November 1, 2012
Style High Club: With the new Great Gatsby film coming out in a few months, even mainstream fashion magazines are going into a Twenties overdrive – apparently Twenties Marcel and finger waves are going to be staging a style come-back.
Well, I’ve tried finger waving my hair a few times and boy, it is not easy. I find Marceling (a technique using a hot curler on dry hair) a lot easier than finger waving (done with a comb on wet hair). Especially when you do you own hair, finger waving is very tricky, watch out for numb arms.
There are plenty of finger waving tutorials in books and on blogs but I much prefer seeing someone demonstrate, so after some searching I’ve found this excellent YouTube finger wave tutorial by Thrifty Creations, which is a brilliant step-by-step guide, I highly recommend it!
