How to Create Finger Waves

We were inspired by old black and white movies for our We Heart this week and thought a look at finger waves would spark some inspiration for Halloween hair. This would be a great look to add a sparkly hair accessory to; follow our DIY Hair Comb or We Heart Hair Combs posts to create your own birdcage or rhinestone studded clip. We also love the idea of adding a brooch to hairstyle, check out our post on that for more ideas.



Love this look at a hair salon in the 1930’s. That perm machine in the beginning looks amazing…and a little scary.

There’s plenty of videos and techniques out there on how to get a finger wave. We personally liked this one as a quick way to get that S-shape going on in the front of the hair without having to sleep in curlers or curl your whole head.
