Lips: Liner – Jordana Plush Plumb | Mac Sin | Clear Gloss
OK so I want to start off with BY FAR the most important part of this whole tutorial. I cannot stress is enough. You are LOST without it.
It may have been a hot minute since you slathered your head with hair gel (perhaps not since the crunchy hair 80’s or the cowboy soup curls or the early 2000’s?) but you’re gonna need to whip it out again. To help with the crunch factor I put it on dry hairs.
How much you use depends on how much hair you have but you want to make sure it’s coating all of it and it’s distributed evenly. The easiest way for me to do that was to do it a section at a time and comb through it while it’s still damp(so the hair looks smooth and shiny)
As far as sectioning goes, it all depends on how thick your locks are. Because of the uniform nature of the style it actually works best and easiest on thinner hair. If your hair is thin you’ll only need to section it off 1 time (so two half sections). My hair is fine but pretty darn thick so I had to section it off 3 or 4 times.
1. As appose to most of the curls you’ve probably done in the past I like to start with the top section with this look. This gives you the chance to decide exactly how you want it to look and where you want the waves to go. I’ve shown two options (above) I started the waves right up at my forehead for a more retro finish. On Bethany (below I wanted it to look a tad more relaxed so I started the first wave at temple level. Once you have the top layer done you’ll know where each of the below waves need to go in order to match. (Does that make sense? Am I complicating this too much?)
Ok so now that you know where you want that wave clamp the curling iron over the weft of hair (wiggly it arournd a bit so you don’t get clamp crimps.
2. Unclamp and hold piece right below the wave letting it cool for a few seconds
3. Hold the wave in place with one hand and clamp the hair in reverse with the other.
4&5. Continue this process down the whole piece.
When waving the underneath sections be sure to start the wave to match the top waves exactly. so the S is uniform.
If your hair is super resistant to curl try clipping the waves like this:
