Recreating 20s and 30s finger waves

Wonderful video and very authentic 30s waves. This shows exactly why most women in the day had their hair set in salons weekly, maintained it themselves at home but then went back for re-setting. There are a lot of tutorials about waves and ‘easy’ techniques, but they never get the ‘real’ look of the 30s correct. To really get an authentic wave it takes time and multiple steps, which is captured beautifully here.

I blogged about this here as well…the curling first and then setting the waves after using brushing out and then wet setting techniques.
