BTC EXCLUSIVE: Giannandrea’s Waves, Two Ways!

We just LOVE celeb stylist and Macadamia Professional International Creative Director Giannandrea! He gave us an exclusive look at how he creates the two types of waves your clients are begging for right now. And we trust him. “Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Benson—they demand newer, cooler waves!” G says. So he’s taking us behind the scenes to show us how he does it.

 

First, G’s key rules when building waves:

  • Root direction is key. “Blow-dry the hair in the direction you want the hair to fall,” he says. “I always like it to fall just slightly forward.”
  • According to G, your most important tools in your arsenal are your index finger and thumb. “Your fingers do all the work,” he says.

K.Stew loves these progressive, edgy waves. “One action, three strokes—that’s as long as it takes,” G says. “Grab, turn, tap, tap, tap.”
