Marcel Wave Tutorial.

Well my lovelies, you are in for a treat this morning. I have realised that you have seen many many photos of me and my locks and I haven't even shared with you how I achieve my styles. How mean am I?
To make up for it, here is what I hope is an easy tutorial for the Marcel Wave, which I know is a few ladies nemesis. When it's done well, it's one of my favourite styles! Here goes.....

Here is what you will need:

 Like all styles, this will work better on day old hair. Here is my long fringe, this however will work on shorter fringes. It has been roughly blow dried as my hair tends to be quite frizzy. Take an oval section at the front starting from temple to temple. Fill up your spray bottle with cold water. You can mix a teeny bit of setting lotion in with the water if your hair is stubborn.

You will be splitting your section at the front into 4. Take your first section, spray, hold up and roll downwards following the arrow. Pin in place either using kirby grips or flat pin curl clips. If you are sleeping in your set, kirby grips would best.

Take your second section, spray, hold down and roll up, following the arrow and pin. Alternating the direction you roll your pin curls is what determines your marcel wave. Your third section you will be rolling the same way as you did on your first section.

All done!
The arrows show which direction in which the pincurls have been rolled.

I'm sleeping in my set, so it's on with a headscarf for the rest of my hair and I will see you all in the morning!

Once you have carefully taken out your pins, brush out the curls with a soft bristle brush. With a comb, push into your fringe and push towards your parting. You will start to see the wave appear. Once the wave is appearing, use your wave clips and 'grab' the wave. In other words, make sure the clip is grabbing the ridge that is appearing. Follow all the way down to the end of the section.
Leave the clips in place for 10 minutes, take out, then spray.

 I really hope this tutorial was helpful to y'all and would love to hear feedback. Let me know if it works for you!

Love as always, Lucille xx

I'd want to make use of some with the content material on my blog whether or not you don't mind. Natually I'll give you a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
