1. Waving 101: Break Down The Basics

Don’t let clients leave the salon without these waving basics below! “If we can teach our clients how to properly use the tools, which direction to curl their hair, then we can empower them to feel beautiful everyday, not just leaving the salon,” shares Chris.

 

Get The Basics Below:

  • In the front hairline sections, curl the hair away from the face.
  • For more movement and texture, alternate the direction of every curl.
  • Different sections will determine different curl patterns. Smaller sections will create heavier texture and bigger sections will create looser waves.
  • Whether they flip over their hair and shake out the curls or comb through using a wide tooth comb, suggest different ways of breaking up waves.

2. Choose The Right Tools

Let’s be real. You’re probably not going to send a client home with a Marcel iron. Chris recommends whatever tool matches the client’s skill level at home for best results which is typically a flat iron or wand. 

 

What’s the most “usable” at-home tool according to Chris? He recommends clients invest in the Revolutionary 1.25″ Ionic Salon Flat Iron by Hot Tools. “Much like running scissors over a ribbon, just smooth over once, turn either half or a full rotation then glide the iron over the section,” shares Chris. Keep scrolling for the video how-to!
