1920s hairstyles: Easy finger waves
When we were planning my 1920s wedding, my sister and I decided to try to find a way to do our hair in 1920s hairstyles. Laura asked her stylist, who showed her how to do easy finger waves.
Instead of doing the finger waves the old-fashioned way — painstakingly sculpting each wave with a comb — my sister's stylist showed her how to do it using wave clips. Here are a few pictures of the process that the photographers took while my sister was getting ready for the wedding.
Working section by section, Laura formed her hair into fingerwaves, placing the wave clips in the low spots of the waves to hold them. Her hair is naturally curly too (though not as curly as mine), so her stylist told her to work with where her hair naturally wants to wave or curl.
Once the wave clips were in place, Laura sprayed the section with hairspray and hit it with the hair dryer to set the waves.
And the end result:
I just have to post this one — it's a great picture of her hair, but the expression is classic. I guess the photographers caught her by surprise:
This method didn't work in my hair, of course — mine is way too curly on its own to take to fingerwaves. However, I think my 1920s hairstyle still turned out great!
