How to Finger Wave Long Hair

Learn how to finger wave long hair from Pierre Michel Salon style director Jerome Lordet in this Howcast hair tutorial.


So what I'm doing now is the preparation for actually doing finger wave. The first step would be to actually curl the hair, pin it, and eventually we'll do a finger wave on it. So the process, it will be to curl the hair, pin curl it, and then later on, finger wave it. Pin it, spray it, let it sit for a second, and then let's move on to the next step. We'll remove the clips and we'll form the finger wave right after that.

Right now I'm forming the finger wave with my finger and my comb, because those need to be actually done with your finger, that's why they call them finger wave. Okay, a small one. I am actually right now forming the wave with my fingers, as you can see. It will be like a zigzag all the way down. So this part goes up. This part goes back down and then go back up here.

We're putting the clips so we actually get the shape into the hair. Then we should heat it up a little bit with the hair dryer. Let it cool down for a few minutes and finally take out the clips and then brush or comb the hair again. And here you have a 1920's kind of look.
