MODERN Facebook fan Najah Aziz, owner and stylist at Like the River The Salon in Atlanta, Georgia, created these incredible finger waves and posted this image on our Facebook wall--once we saw it, we KNEW we had to track down the how to.
To begin, shampoo the hair and mold it flat in a wave framing the face with a foam product on the client's head.
Then place under the dryer for 25-30 min until dry. A light oil (grapeseed oil) is applied all over the hair and massaged in. The hair is then curled very tight (like a roller set) on base with a flatiron.
After the complete head is curled, more oil is applied to allow the hair to glide smoothly as the waving process starts.
The hair is waved in C shapes back and forth, smoothing the hair with a comb until the wave is created. The hair is then sprayed with a spritz.
