Diagonal Ridge Curl C Shaping or Diagonal Pin Curl Wave Instructions

  1. First, make a diagonal “C” shaping. Create a C in the hair, do not comb the hair straight back behind the ear.
  2. Begin the top of the C behind the second roller.
  3. Next, create diagonal finger wave. Place your pointer finger at the edge of the eye. An upside-down triangle should take place between the eye and top of the roller.
  4. Starting at the top, using your comb next to your finger, slide it out ¼ of an inch, then down ¾ of an inch.
  5. Flatten the comb and place your fingers firmly over the ridge.
  6. Comb the remaining hair up and away. As a result, a new C-shaping preparing for your pin curls will start to take shape.
  7. Then, roll your finger down and off the comb. A ridge is now visible.
  8. Continue towards the eye/tip of the ear, connecting and smoothing the ridge.
  9. Next, carve out 4-5 overlapping clockwise carved ridge curls, starting at top, open end of the C. Additionally, hair that is carved should be about approximately ¾ of an inch.
  10. Do not create another wave, however do create another C shaping the opposite way.
  11. Beginning at the bottom of the C make 4-5 overlapping counterclockwise pin curls.
  12. In addition create at least 4 pin curls, but no more than 6.
  13. Finally, pin curls should be 1-inch in diameter.
