Finger Waves or Marcel Waves
Finger Waves are curls created by setting the hair into curls by squeezing hair lightly sprayed with hair spray ( at that time a hair lotion) between the fingers and allowing it to dry slightly and then combing the hair in alternate directions to create the waves. This hairstyle was very popular in the 20s and 30s and Hollywood beauties of those generations Jean Harlow and Bette Davis made this hairstyle their signature hairdo.

Marcel waves originally known as “Undulation Marcel” are not exactly the same as finger waves but they almost look the same. This hairstyle was created by French hairdresser Francois Marcel in the 19th century by using curling irons. The result of this process looks exactly like finger waves. Modern day celebrities that have rocked the finger wave or Marcel wave are Charlize Theron, Katy Perry, Hale Berry, Drew Barrymore and Christina Aguilera.

Summer Haircuts for Boys

Girls are not the only ones who want their hair to look great. Despite popular belief, boys also want to look great, and while they generally prefer hairstyles that make it easy to get out the door, they still want to look as great as they possibly can. Just like with girls, boys’ hairstyles look better on some than on others.

The classic boys style is a great short haircut for boys. The hairstyle is layered short on top, and then is tapered down on the sides and in the back. The hair is trimmed around the ears, and into the back of the neck. This is a great wash and wear style that will suit most boys, though those with round faces may want to wear their hair a little longer than normal to help lengthen their faces.
