Miss New York USA Joanne Nosuchinsky attends the 16th Annual ASPCA Bergh Ball at The Plaza Hotel. With a classic old Hollywood look the modern finger wave was the way to go. If you have ever wondered how to recreate a modern finger wave it’s easy when you have the right tools.

At Caravan Stylist Studio we started Joanne’s look products from Salon Grafix giving the hair a spray of Healthy Hair Nutrition Restyler and a liberal spraying of Shaping Hair Spray. Once the hair was prepped and ready we used Babyliss Deep Wave Iron. Create a deep part to one side of the hair for this section of hair you will want to position the iron to flow with the direction of the parted hair. Taking small sections of hair with the Deep Wave Iron and crimp a section of the hair closest to the scalp holding the iron in place for 5 seconds, release and move the iron down the same section of hair and repeat. Spray each section with Shaping Hair Spray and continue till all the hair is done. Let the hair cool and set the waves before combing the waves out and styling. When you comb the waves you will see a beautiful elegant flow to the hair. Where you have the part in the hair take the smaller section gather section of the hair and pull behind the ear and around the nape of the neck. Using bobby pins to hold in place. Letting the front section hold its form by spraying Freezing Hair Spray. Now you have the perfect modern finger wave.

For Makeup we used POP Beauty giving Joanne a old Hollywood Glamour look. Her eyes were a light golden bronze with a dark black liquid liner and lashes that went for miles. Matching her Carmen Marc Valvo dress with a dark crimson red and contouring her cheekbones. Giving Miss New York her red carpet look that turns heads.
