Originally published in 1923, this book will teach you how to create fabulous 1920s waved styles. Marcel Grateau evented his technique in 1882, but it grabbed attention for him when he waved the hair of actress Jane Hading and she wore her newly waved hair for all to see in her play "Le Maitres Des Forges" in 1885.

The Marcel Waving technique uses a heated iron to wave the hair. With similar results as finger waving techniques used in the 1920s, the Marcel technique created more lasting results because a hot iron was used to create the wave. Hairdressing tools have evolved and today's curling iron barrels range in size from small to large, allowing you to choose the right curling iron to use for your waving style.

This book details the six steps necessary to Marcel Wave. The steps are actually coordinated "movements" made with the iron, comb and hand to create the desired waving effect. The author details each step with both illustrations and text descriptions. After the movements are mastered, you then learn how to join the waves, direct the left and right wave, and drop a wave -- all techniques used to create the hairstyles that follow. Over 45 additional illustrations show you how to create 15 hairstyles including the straight back marcel wave, wave with dip on forehead, horseshoe wave, waving for a center part, wave for a high part, short center parting with bangs, center parting wave for high forehead, waving and curling for a bob, wave for cross parting coiffure, horseshoe wave with bang, wave for a short low parting, waved evening coiffure, wave for a bob effect, side wave arrangement, and evening coiffure with waved wathe.
