How to use the Babyliss Porcelain Triple Barrel Waver to produce results like this!!

Perfect Waves Before
Perfect Waves Step 1

Take a section of hair about 4cm wide.
Perfect Waves Step 2

Spray hair lightly for extra hold.
Perfect Waves Step 3

Place the section between the bottom plate and top barrels of the Babyliss PRO Triple Barrel Waver. Ensure you are about 2cm away from the scalp.
Perfect Waves Step 4

Clamp the Weaver shut and hold for about five seconds.
Perfect Waves Step 5

Move the Waver down and make sure you place the first barrel in the last wave so the waves interlock together without any harsh lines or dents.
Perfect Waves Step 6

Move down ensuring that you place the first barrel in the last wave.
Perfect Waves Step 7

Move down until you have completed the section and tuck tails into the barrel with a tail comb for a smooth finish.
Perfect Waves Step 8

The wave should be continuous and smooth.
Perfect Waves Step 9

Moving to the top section, again take five sections about 5cm, 2cm away from the scalp and turn the wavers up slightly on an angle to avoid creating hard lines around the crown.
Perfect Waves Step 10

Always ensure the plate is under the hair with the barrels clamping down onto it. Because the plate has an edge to it, it is essential you tilt it to avoid creating a ridge.
Perfect Waves Step 11

Keeping away from the scalp creates a soft movement off the head.
Perfect Waves Finished Look
To finish simply break up the waves with your fingers to create a softer look.
