The finger waves are defined ‘S’ shaped waves that are often worn flat against the head. The style first popped up in the 1920s as a way to spice up the strict bob of fun-loving flappers. Then, it reemerged in the 90’s as a popular style for black hair. Now, finger waves are back again, for short and long hair, in more ways than we can wrap our heads around!
Trends in fashion and hairstyling offer us new ideas every season, twice a year. To create something new fashion always refers to the past rethinking that was created decades or even hundreds of years ago. That’s why vintage hairstyles are so popular today. Pinup hairstyles, elegant vintage updos and downdos are worn to theme parties, weddings and every day. The best of them look like a modern remake of iconic hairstyles worn back in the past. The modern flair can be achieved with a trendy hair color, trendy texture or intricately braided elements that show off the braided patterns popular today. Look through our vintage galleries for inspiration and new-old ways to style your hair!
