1920ís is proving to be a huge trend this season with the Great Gatsby
look being the style to follow Ö Flapper dresses, long pearls and
finger waves are perfect for re-creating this classic look and we
absolutely LOVE the Great Gatsby Finger Wave hair style! This era is
famous for its sleek bobs and cropped cuts but our tutorial shows how to
get the look even with longer cuts. If you wouldnít dare leave the
house without your Headkandy hair extensions then donít worry you can
still create the Great Gatsby finger wave hair style with your extra length
using a medium barrelled tong :)
First start by fitting your Headkandy hair extensions as you would normally. Section
your hair and pin the top sections of hair up leaving you with an
underneath section about 2Ē wide. Apply a little heat protection product
before styling. Section your hair into 3, 1 each side and 1 at the
the tong horizontally with the grip facing away from you, place the
tong underneath the first section of hair using the tong grip, which
should be on top of your hair to hold in place. After a few seconds
remove the tong from your hair and turn the tong around, the grip should
now be facing you! Place the tong underneath the bump you have created
in your hair but place the tong on top of your hair with the grip
underneath. When you remove the tong you should have a U shape. Continue
this alternate method for the whole strand of hair and for the other 2
sections. Itís usually best to follow the same pattern for each section
so that all your waves flow the same way to create the Great Gatsby
down the next layer of hair and continue step 3 until complete. Itís
usually best to separate your hair into about 3 or 4 layers, with
between 3 and 4 sections on each, depending on how thick your hair is.
When you have completed the tonging process use a little serum on your finger tips to smooth and even out the hair.
Great Gatsby Finger Wave hair style is perfect with hair accessories!!
Whether you choose a wrap around hairband, a feather or a jewelled clip
you will fit the style perfectly! Another 20ís tip is to create a curl
near your temple. To do this use a shorter section of your own hair and
wet this down with a spray gel or similar product. Then simply wrap this
around your finger and pin in place!
