One of our very talented educators here at AIP, Britton Valle, put together a really easy and fun tutorial on how to make finger waves. Have you ever wanted the look of a fun finger wave, but don’t have the time or skills to pull it off? We’ll show you how to get the finger wave look with just using your flat iron!

WHAT YOU NEED:

FLAT IRON

COMB

CLIPS (for pinning hair where you need it while working.)

TUTORIAL

1. Comb through the hair, and make a V section of hair for your finger wave.

2. Hold the hair in your hand and give the hair a little “push” straight up. While you push it up, you are giving it lift. Start to heat up the top of what will be the finger wave with your flat iron.

3. Continue to hold the hair lock in your hand and change the direction of the hair while you continue to press the flat iron down the hair to hold the style. Make sure you are creating a wave when guiding the hair.

4. Continue pressing the hot iron down the whole lock of hair while adjusting the shape with your other hand.

This leaves you with a fun play on a finger wave done super quickly with the ease of your flat iron! You can comb it out to add some fun volume, or keep the fun tight wave! Now you know how to make finger waves.
