What is the Crown?
The crown is located at the upper middle level of your scalp; sometimes it’s mistaken as a bald spot (LoL…It’s not a bald spot guys). Basically, it’s where your hair is parted. For a waver, it is parted many different ways to achieve the 360 Doppler Effect. The location varies from person to person; the crown can be in either the middle, left, or right region of the upper level of the head.
What is a Spiral Crown?
A Spiral Crown is the opposite of a 360 Doppler Effect. A Spiral Crown is exactly what the name portrays – your waves mimic a spiraling out effect. Some people have a naturally spiraling crown, but for others it’s all about training. Yea, that means you would have to do some work (not much people). It is actually simple, especially when you use Wave Builder’s Edgetastic!
How do I get a Spiral Crown?
You have to first pick a side, left or right, for where you want your spiral location to be. I picked the left upper location because I’m right handed it just comes naturally. Start by extending your brush strokes from where you want your spiral crown to form and work your way down. Start each stroke from that position working your way around your head. I suggest picking up a mini brush so that you can focus on your crown to help deepen and define it.
