HAIR - Vintage Waves Tutorial

Dark red vintage style waves, hair style

If you've been wanting to try something new with your hair, especially for Christmas party season, why not try a 1930s glamour look. Get the look with some vintage-style waves. The images sent to me by Harringtons Hairdressing were created by applying a setting lotion to freshly cleansed and conditioned hair, then setting on large rollers and drying under a hood drier. But you can also get the same look at home setting on large Velcro rollers, or if with double-barrelled tongs.

How to do vintage waves

Step 1
Apply a setting agent (such as pli) to day-old hair to give it ‘guts’ and help set the waves in place. If using hot rollers, use a heat protective spray too, followed by a setting agent of your choice.

Step 2 
Using a Denman pin-tail comb, divide hair into sections (the finer the section, the greater the curl) and wind around Velcro or hot rollers.

Step 3 
Once completely dry, brush hair through using the Denman Classic Brush, creating your favoured wave by moulding hair into shape using both the brush and your hands. Finish with a light hold spray. 

Do let me know if you give it a try or if you've got your own tips to add by leaving a comment.
