Old Hollywood Glamour - Oscars 2019

Lucy Boynton, a relative new comer to the scene, seemed to channel her inner Grace Kelly for the Oscars this year.  Her blonde hair was fashioned in Marcel waves reminiscent of old Hollywood glam. So how do you get that look? 

Behind the Chair found Sean Godard's (@seangodard) finger wave tutorial fasciating - and so do we!

STEPS:

  1. Prep the hair with Redken Iron Shape 11 to protect strands from heat and to keep the style locked in.
  2. Start with the bottom layers first, then move to the top layers using 1-inch sections. If working on short hair, know that it’s not always necessary to curl the bottom sections, and curling the top layer only can still create a finger-waved effect.
  3. When starting each section, always work from roots to ends and hold the hair out about 45 degrees from the head while keeping the iron horizontal. If you want the waves to lay flat, try aligning the waves with the previous ridges from the previous section. 
  4. Always push the iron in one direction while gently opening and closing the clamp and pulling the tail in the opposite direction (a Marcel iron, like the Hot Tools Pro one Sean uses works best for this technique!). Apply a decent amount of pressure when creating the shape of the wave—it’s OK to slightly bend the section back over the clamp to create a more defined ridge.
  5. When one wave is complete, move to the next row in that section and use the iron in the opposite direction. Be careful not to put too much tension on the wave you just completed above so that it can cool. (You can set them with some no-bend clips to keep ridges aligned.)
