Hairline Fingerwaves

close formula

The highly-saturated and structured fingerwaves trend made its comeback last year, but this season it’s being reimagined by New York Fashion Week designers and (of, course!) their right-hand hairdressers. BTC went backstage at Christopher John Rogers SS19 with amika Artistic Director Naeemah LaFond, and we spotted these subtly-gelled hairline fingerwaves.


For clients who want something personal and edgy, these low-key yet high-shine wave accents will give them that cool-girl (or guy) factor they’re looking for. Get the how-to steps and key products used to achieve this look below!


Products Used



First, prep the hair by applying amika The Shield Anti-Humidity Spray to the ends and the back of the head. This heat-activated spray will protect against frizz for up to 24 hours for long-lasting smoothness.


Using an amika The Armory Collection Antidote Silk Wrap Styler, wave linear bends throughout the hair.


Create a strong center part, then mist the top and the sides with water and avoid the ends.


Apply firm-hold gel generously and use a fine-tooth comb to smooth the hair down and shape waves at the hairline.

Then, then blow-dry with the hair using an amika The Armory Collection Immortal Power-Life Dryer with the diffuser attachment. 


Apply amika Fluxus Touchable Hairspray to the back of the style. Then finish by applying amika Glass Action Universal Elixir to the gelled hair for a shine-infused finish and glassy effect.
