Mustafa Avci (@hairsalonM and @mustafaavci) met with MODERN SALON recently to share his tips on creating the perfect Hollywood Wave.

Avci, owner of Hair Salon M (Brooklyn, NY) also has an impressive handle on updos, which we will explore in our next video tutorial. Check out this video to get his steps and tips on creating the perfect wave and learn that:

1. Waves work best when hair is wrapped horizontally in a bricklayer pattern.

2. Sections should be twisted while wrapped.

3. Once cooled, sections should be combed and teased gently.

4. Fanning the wave helps to expose the shape and blend with other waves.
