How To Make Finger Waves in Four Steps
Believe it or not, all you need to make this shipwrecked finger waves at home is four drugstore products and four steps. Below is a step-by-step guide to help you achieve this mesmerizing look.
There is a deconstructed element to this collection. In speaking with Jason Wu, I wanted to create a look that felt like the models just emerged from a shipwreck. The TRESemmé products allowed us to achieve a wet, nearly drenched appearance without sacrificing the fluid movement of the natural hair texture.
Step 1: The first step is to divide the hair into smaller sections: four on the bottom and four on the top. Then, spray each section with water using a spray bottle. Once dampening each section, apply a lot of TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel until the hair is soaked. After that, use a comb to distribute the gel from root to end.
Step 2: Now that the hair is sectioned and drenched in gel, apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum throughout to impart shine and a reflective, wet look. Then, scrunch a little bit of TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Mousse for Frizz Control into each section of the hair to add texture and hold.
Step 3: After prepping the hair, make a deep side part with a finger wave swoop across the forehead. Use a rat tail comb to make the part and wave quickly. After this step, simply B=brush the rest of the hair behind the ear.
PRO TIP: Set the wave in place with a cover clip and remove it once dry.
Step 4: Finish the look with TRESemmé Tres Two Ultra Fine Hairspray for natural control. This spray will set the amazing finger waves without leaving the hair stiff.
