Fingerwaves first came about in the 1920s and they are uber classy. Fingerwaves are all about molding and shaping the hair into an s-shaped curve. This style works really well on a bob, but can be achieved with longer hair, as well. To start, you are going to want to create a deep part on one side of your head. Then, create the first section about 1’ away from your part. After this, use a clip to pin this part down. Create an identical part about 1” away from the first s-shape. Continue to do this until complete on both sides. You will want to start curling these sections. Spray on a setting hairspray and mold into curls. This style takes a bit of practice, but once you nail it, the final result is to die for!
