    Place marcel waves into the hair until you reach the jawline. Use a marcel iron or, a traditional finger wave setting method. Vintage wave clamps were used for this wave set.

    With remaining hair apply ProRituals Adapt Working Spray to each section and set into spiral type curls tighter at the ends. Achieve this with a small curling wand, then pin in place.

    Once set, spray hair with a few pumps of ProRituals Light Play Styling Spray and let dry completely. A hooded dryer is recommended.

    Remove pins first, then clamps. Lightly brush through hair with a Marilyn New Yorker brush or, a boar/nylon mix brush, keeping finger waves in their original form.

    Push hair in a loose backcombing method, teasing the curled hair until it forms a shape just at jaws length. Pin with Marilyn bobby pins so it has a horizontal shape on the underside of the hairstyle.
