Freida Pinto's Modernized Finger Wave
Freida Pinto's glossy updo combines a classic bun with a modernized finger wave. Instead of a series of waves, there is only one exaggerated swoop. To get her look, add a gel that will both create hold and shine. Bumble and Bumble Gellac is a great option for freezing the style while adding a super slick finish. Next make a deep side part and comb the area where you'll be making the finger wave straight down along the side of the head. Then take a large hard rubber comb and place is vertically on the newly combed section of hair two inches above the ear. Put your index finger half an inch above the teeth of the comb. Without lifting the comb away from the scalp slide it forward one inch. Keeping your index finger firmly in place while the comb moves will form a backwards 'c' shape. Move your finger, place it vertically in the middle of the 'c' and comb the rest of the hair back toward the nape of the neck. In order to keep the finger wave in place, spritz with hairspray. Tresses that have been pulled back can be secured in a low ponytail, twisted, wrapped into a bun and pinned in place.
