Purchase a hair waving iron, which is a hair styling tool with three barrels strategically placed to create fabulous vintage waves. There are a variety of brands you can choose from, such as Babyliss Triple Barrel Waver Tong which works gorgeously and has a reasonable price.

Choose your favorite brand of curl enhancer product as these products are especially created to define and set the waves in lace, making your hair look and feel smooth as this is an essential step in the look of the hairstyle.

The hair needs to look perfect in order for the waves to stand out fabulously.

Wash your hair using the right hair shampoo for your hair type in order for your tresses to have a clean and healthy aspect. Apply a hair conditioner to soften the hair and control flyaway hairs as they will not make your hair look good. Nourishing the hair will only bring it benefits but make sure not to apply the conditioner to the scalp especially if you have an oily scalp to prevent the hair from looking flat and oily.

Apply a heat protection spray and blow dry your tresses straight as the hair needs to be completely dry before you begin styling the fabulous vintage waves. Try to use the cold air flow from the blow dryer to avoid hair damage as this could ruin the look of your hair. Only healthy hair can receive a fabulous and glamorous posture so pay attention to hair care.

After the hair has been completely dried heat your waving iron and section two panels of the hair on both sides of the head. Place your hair between the barrels and allow the plates to close for instant waves. Move down towards the ends of the hair for a complete finished look.

Apply the curl product on the waves to smooth them out and create a fabulous neat look that stands out. Do not exaggerate with the product as a tiny amount needs to be rubbed between the fingers and applied gently.

This type of hairstyle looks best on medium hair so create a chignon in the back if you have long hair or choose to pin your hair close to the scalp if your hair is shorter.

Do apply attention to details and your hair will look great. Turn towards a vintage style makeup for a complete look and choose a fashionable outfit that complements your stylish look so you can be admired by everyone.
