Hi Dames! What the heck is a vertical wave or horizontal wave? I’ll tell you- lots of women ask me how to achieve the super glam waves celebs sport on the red carpet or how to achieve the perfect beach wave all year round. The answer is knowing which direction to hold your iron. Check out the how to do video below.

Horizontal waves create a very glam style best for evening look. Hold your iron so the barrel is pointing horizontal.

Vertical waves create a day time, summer, casual style. Hold your iron pointing downward.
