    Wave Hair

    Take thin horizontal sections and lightly mist them with Thermal Creations Curl Activator Spray. Take your double-pronged curling iron and place your hair between the two barrels and rock it once. Remove the curling iron from the hair, start at the bottom of the S shape and place the iron in again and rock the opposite way. Once you are done waving the hair you should see a nice zigzag pattern all the way down. Continue this until both front sections have been completely waved.
