  • PREPARATION

  • SECTIONING

  • PLASTIC SLEEVE

  • WAVE CLAMP & TAIL OF THE COMB

  • SECRET PIN

 

TIP 1. PREPARATION

This truly is your golden moment to ensure your waves have hold.

If you like your client to arrive with clean dry hair, make sure you recommend what and how they need to shampoo & condition with – we have all experienced a client who turned up with oily limp hair and expects miracles 😂

It’s also important you recommend what products you would like in the hair from wet to dry.

– Ok your turn – on dry hair apply a second layer of product and blow dry in 4 – 5 sections using our Timesaver Brush  – use the Curve comb around the hairline if needed.

TIP 2. SECTIONING

Refer to the head sheet

Divide the sections into two channels

Using a Glampalm Magic wand (I love the size of this barrel it’s 25mm and just seems to be a perfect size barrel for 99% of my work, oh and the hair always feels amazing because of the healing stone finish.

Set all of channel 1 forward, on base for maximum volume

Set all of channel 2 backward, on base.

Allow to cool

TIP 3. PLASTIC SLEEVE

Pin on a plastic sleeve under the set section, This is the easiest way I have found to be able to comb the waves into place without catching the back of the hair.

TIP 4. WAVE CLAMP & TAIL OF COMB

Using a curve comb and wave clamps secure the waves.

Use the Bigtail comb on each clamp to lift the clamp and push the hair up for a sharper wave

Secure the back section of the hair into a side pony using the ammmmmazing Bungee tape – To use the tape peel only a little corner of the hair and pop the tape under your finger, then simply wrap around removing the out side plastic.

Rouche out with the help of our Bigtail comb

Twist the hair and form your shape at the nape – secure with our all NEW Kingpins

TIP 5. SECRET PIN

Take out the wave clamps one at a time and using mini size bobby pins turn on there side and slip in the troughs of the waves to hold.
