Ridge Procedure in Finger Waving

The hair is evenly distributed away from the part in preparation for the first shaping that will surround the part (illustration 1). Beginning on the heavy side, use the coarse teeth of the comb to form a forward shaping parallel to the part from the hairline. You are now ready to form the first ridge.

The index finger is placed over the center of the shaping. The coarse teeth of the comb are placed below and parallel to the index finger. The teeth of the comb face toward the index finger (see illustration 2).

Direct the comb 1/2 inch away from the index finger following the direction of the hair (see illustration 3 and the dotted line in illustration 6a). Straighten the comb so that the teeth face toward the index finger.

With the teeth directed toward the scalp, move the comb straight up to the index finger (see illustration 4 and the dotted line in illustration 6b).

Move the comb slightly forward along the index finger to lock the hair, emphasize the ridge, and allow space between the ridge and the comb so that you can change finger position (see illustration 5 and the dotted line in illustration 6c).
