The vintage Hollywood finger wave (think The Great Gatsby) is "hotter" than ever. Joi Rooks, educator, sent us this amazing video breaking down an easy creation in 6 easy steps. Check it out:

Step 1: Prep hair with KMS California HotFlex Creme and Hot Flex Spray.

Step 2: Clip hair around eye or fringe level to keep shape uniform.

Step 3: Take a veritcal section (around one inch) below the clip and shape the hair into an "S" wave.

Step 4: Press a flat iron along the S, pressing the hair into the shape. Press and hold for a couple of seconds until "set".

Step 5: Clip into place to secure. Continue around the head in veritical sections.

Step 6: Once cooled, remove the clips and brush into desired shape. Place KMS California AnitHumidity Seal onto a brush and brush over the surface to remove strays and place the shape.
