Separate your hair into sections, depending on the style you want to create. Whether it's only a one sided finger wave, isolate the rest of the strands. Going step by step will guarantee the spectacular look.



The first section should be at least 2 inches far from the crown area. Grab the bobby pins or other securing tools and first of all use your fingers to form a wavy pattern. Place it preferably parallel to the upper parting and over the hair strand. Secure this tiny wave with a bobby pin, then slowly pull your fingers off the tress.
Keep handling all the strands with the same method until you have covered all your head or the area which you want to wear the finger waves on.

Finally, it is advisable to place a hairnet to cover your hair, still if you don't have one you can leave your locks bare and dry them profoundly until you'll feel that all the waves are ready.

Finally, remove all the pins and hairnet and carefully slide your fingers over the finger waves or use a gentle brush to comb the hair in the natural direction of the styled strands. Enjoy your 20s flapper hairstyle with great confidence.
