With curly hair tongs and section clips, you can create classic Marcel waves to create a beautiful 1920s hairstyle. Kiss curls were a popular hair trend started by American-born French jazz dancer Josephine Baker, whose look on stage consisted of short gelled hair with a striking single curl on her forehead. Once your hair is completely dry and you’ve sprayed it with a little more hairspray, it’s time to remove all the hair clips and unleash your curls. For your finger waves to shape properly and stay in place, you need to use quite a bit of hair gel.
Both hairstyles included a deep side part that emphasized the volume on the top of the head and added to the restraint of the style.
