Current Obsession: Marcel Waves

Marcel waves, also known as finger waves, were popular in the 1920s and continue to be a favorite amongst designers and starlets.  They are fairly easy to do, come in a variety of looks, and can work with many lengths of hair.

Diane Kruger has worn Marcel waves several times, each with a different vibe.  From polished to decorated, they always make a statement.

When adding glitz to your waves, consider vintage and estate jewelry.  Dolce & Gabbana featured some beautiful combs and clips in their Spring 2010 collection:

For instructions on how to make Marcel waves, see the image below (which can be enlarged by clicking on it), or search YouTube for videos.

XOXO, Coco Birdie
