Love your video. I have long hair (down to bra strap) and it seems all I can do is this glam style. I do love it, but wish there were more videos on different styles you can do with the longer hair.
Forever Zyyy (5 months ago)
Do you synthetic hair?
GlamFam (5 months ago)
Yes, I’m able to work with synthetics as well. The technique is totally different though.
Erik Petrie (6 months ago)
Now that I happened upon your channel, I'll be binge watching your videos so I can also learn how to do awesome styles like the one I just saw. That fingerwave looks pretty cool. My mom just bought me 2 new mannequin heads and I can't wait to start trying new styles on them.

Wow! Beautifully done. I’m gonna try this on my synthetic wigs.
GlamFam (9 months ago)
I wouldn’t typically recommend the curling iron portion on most synthetic hair, but wet setting, boil setting, or steam setting it tends to be ideal.

I always thought you had to do croquignole curls the figure - 8 method to get the finger wave look. At least that is what they tell you at the State Board.
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Crystal Blue 😊 you'll find in this industry that there are several ways to accomplish the same things, especially where haircolor is concerned. State board and cosmetology school is interesting that way 😊❤️
Thank you! Very useful video ♥

jackie heredia (1 year ago)
I tried doing them the problem I'm having is that he duck bills left a big dent on my hair and I can't seem to make the waves more noticeable and big any tips?
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+jackie heredia my pleasure!
jackie heredia (1 year ago)
GlamFam thank you for your quick response I will be taking it into consideration 😊😗
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+jackie heredia it sounds like you may have a couple of issues. The first could be the size of the curls, especially on shorter hair than the mannequin has. Smaller curls will give you more definition. The second sounds like you may be using a little too much hairspray, try to mist it from a distance. Using too much spray makes the impressions from the pins show more. If you are looking for an alternative, you could also use open ended hairpins, they tend to leave less lines in the hair as well. I hope that helps, and thank you for watching!

I know I'm supposed to be learning, but your manicure is so nice and perfect, it's distracting me, I'm a nail tech/hairdresser, your hands are nice
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Barbie Barbie aww thank you so much! I really appreciate that!
Imane (1 year ago)
Im impressed by how great the hair turned out to be with what seems like a simple yet efficient technique. I was wondering tho, I have frizzy hair (around my face and nape) that tends to get back to it’s natural frizziness with the first wave of heat and drop of sweat. Do you have any idea on how to keep this look frizz-clean during a summer night event ? PS: You rock !
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Rho Jack thank you so much! I'm glad you are enjoying the videos! That really means a lot to us! 😊
Rho Jack (1 year ago)
GlamFam awesome videos I'm on my third one
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Imane Morocco?? That's AMAZING! Thank you so much! 😃
Imane (1 year ago)
BEST.CHANNEL.EVERRRRR. Thank you for your kind and quick reply, I will surely follow the steps you gave me, ill even try to show you what your curls look like on me ! Greetings All the way from Morocco ! Know that people follow you from the other side of the Atlantic too ;) Thank you for your amazing work again.
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Imane thank you! Your first thing is to deep condition the hair with moisture. The more moisture you push into the hair, the less likely it is to revert when you get around humidity, etc. Second, you can use humidity blocking products or smoothing serums to create a barrier on the hair. This way the outside moisture has a harder time penetrating. Third, (but not necessary and totally optional) you can do smoothing treatments. Now they have some that last 2-4 weeks, some that last 4-6 months, and some that are permanent. So there are options for differing levels of commitment. I hope that helps, and opens up some possibilities as well!

paulinanila (1 year ago)
I want something like this for prom but i have bangs. Could you do a tutorial or give some tips? Thanks!!
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+paulinanila depending on how thick the bangs are, they can easily be incorporated into the style. If they are thicker bangs, sweeping them to the side can still look quite beautiful. Thanks for watching!!

I loved the video and the waves are beautiful! I've wanted to do this hairstyle for prom for awhile but I don't have anyone to do it for me, so I was wondering if you had an tips on how to do it on yourself?
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+lauren perkins it may help to do hot rollers or to roll your hair on soft rollers overnight. That way all you have to do is take them out and brush the waves into place. I hope that helps!

GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Seraphina *watching not wat hung lol
GlamFam (1 year ago)
+Seraphina anchoring it with a small amount of teasing helps out with wigs, but the teasing has to be done well so you can't see it on the top surface. Thanks for wat hung and for your question!
