Shaunda S Mccollum – March 2016
Shaunda won the first ever all female wave battle for Wave King this month. Throughout February she has been posting tips and also interesting historical tidbits. Her hard work has paid off as she joins the ranks of the female Wave Kings who have come before.
Wavebuilder: How long have you had waves?
SSM: I have had waves for almost 3 years.
WB: What is your wavebuilding method?
SSM: My wavebuilding method consists of a lot of shower brushing and molding which is setting my hair with my product of choice to train my waves in the direction that I want them to lay.
WB: What are your favorite WaveBuilder products?
SSM: My favorite Wavebuilder product would have to be your durag. My full time job requires me to wear a hard hat for 10 hours and the Wavebuilder durag does not allow my hair to shift during those hours.
WB: Besides building waves, what do you like to do?
SSM: Besides wavebuilding I am also a part time cosmetologist . I like the fact that I am able to partner with a client and bring their ideas to fruition for some of the most memorable days in their life such as prom, job interviews, and weddings.
WB: What do others love about your waves?
SSM: Most people love the fact that I color my waves. It is one of the few things that set me apart from other wavers.
WB: Any advice to wavers just starting out with their wave game?
SSM: The advice that I would give to wavers just starting out in the wave game is to learn what works best for their hair and to be patient. Brushing will get you waves and there is a ton of information throughout the wave pages to help you to maximize your wave potential. Bbut if you do not understand what works best for you all of it is useless.
WB: How’s it feel to be WAVE KING?
It feels amazing to be Wave King. To be able to prove to yourself and your peers that believed in you that you are worthy of the title is an indescribable feeling. I owe it to my wavy peers, my 1WN family, and all of the female wavers who motivate me and continuously push me to strive me for more.#Salute
