1920's hair

Lately I've been talking about finger/marcel waves for various reasons.

Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between the two. Marcel waves were developed by hairdresser Francois Marcel in France. His process involves a small barreled curling irons or small curlers. To set these waves you take out the curls and brush them out when cooled.

Fingers waves are different in that they involve setting lotion and no form of heat. Instead the hands/comb kink the hair into place. This technique is usually used on African American women.

There are a lot of tutorials on youtube but 95% of them are crap. Here is the best one I could find.
