Hairstyle: Finger Wave

Hair. What can I say. I love my hair. Yet although I am risk taker with clothes, hair is not my forte when I comes to mixing it up. I always find myself lost in my thick mane. Thus looking to add some more hairstyles to my repertoire, I am ecstatic to launch a new hairstyle series with Bigsby House in San Jose, innovators in the art of hair.

Seeking a timeless look for the day of love, my inspiration for my first hair story was classic romance. Finger waves are a perfect way to change up a loose curled hair look, giving your hair a more sleek and sultry style. It was also fun to hide my signature bangs. Something I hope to do more often now that I see it is possible.

A finger wave do is all about knowing your own hair bounce and therefore this will dictate how to execute it. In other words, the less bounce your hair, the tighter you will need to make it, the smaller the barrel size of your curling iron. Using a curling iron, curl sections of your hair inward towards your face. Then using large pins set each section in place until they cool. Use wave clamps to add more structure to your wave if desired, creating a retro look or brush out for a softer take. This Valentine's don't be afraid to add a little glamour with a finger wave.


I also recommend using two finishing products by Shu Uemera, both available at Bigsby House. The Sheer Lacquer for a glossy finish and the Essence Absolue, which is a hair perfume that is to die for and actually makes a great Valentine's Day gift.

Stay tuned for the full look!
