Dan Sharp was drawing quite a crowd at the T3 booth at the Make Up Show NYC earlier this week. Beauty professionals took a break from the make up chaos to line up to get perfect, soft vertical waves from the new T3 Bodywaver.

"Everyone is asking for long, loose waves," Sharp said. "I call this the ultimate Magazine cover hair. It takes just about five minutes to create a full head of beautiful curls. It can be enhanced for wedding and prom season...but the basic shape is perfect for everyday."


Here he offers the HOW TO:

1. Pull a one inch section out from the head (if near face, direct forward). Place the T3 Bodywaver near the scalp with the barrel behind and the clamp in front. Wrap the hair a little bit around at the base to prevent clamp marks.

2. Slide the barrel through the hair, wrapping toward the scalp. Hold at the base for 3 - 5 seconds.

3. Wind the hair out slowly, clicking as you pull away to prevent bands.

4. Once cool, rake the hair with the finger tips and mist with hairspray.
