I've done my hair in a pomp lots of times. I have straight, fairly thick hair, and I've found what works best is to comb the section of hair you want in the pomp straight up, put a hair elastic on there about 4 inches from the roots. You can put a bit of hairspray on now. Now take about four hairpins and stick them in, close to the hair elastic but on the side closer to your forehead. Stick them in so the opening is pointing straight toward your face. More hairspray. Ta-da!
I've been calling hair salons asking if it's possible to get a finger-wave permanent but they seem to think not..what do you all think?
You will probably have to go to a salon for older women. I had to do that, as I got fingerwaves for my senior pictures.
Also you can do it yourself at home. All you need is hair setting stuff, or good gel, papers, and long clips. You can get both of those things at any beauty store.
It's pretty easy to do. Wet your hair and put in the setter/gel, then wave it, paper it, and clip it. Blow dry low and ta-da!
