Vega Smith – May 2011
Check back here for tips, tricks, and pics from Vega as he takes us through the his process of building waves.
WB: How long have you had 360 waves?
Vega: I have had 360s going on 5 or 6 years now.
WB: What is your wavebuilding method?
Vega: Moisturizing, Brushing, and du-raggin, repeat.
WB: What kind of brush do you use, and how many times a day do you brush?
Vega: I use a hard brush most of the time, not that my hair is very thick, but it is very long to substitute for that. I brush maybe 15 minutes a day all together, unless Im in a serious wolfing session then i brush maybe 45 min a day.
WB: Besides building waves, what do you like to do?
Vega: I like to see other wavers, different patterns, and different textures.
WB: What do girls love about your waves?
Vega: Girls love the look of them, and always want to feel them and ask how i get my hair so soft, etc.
WB: Any advice to guys just starting out with their wave game?
Vega: Only advice if your not williing to put in the work, do not complain about not getting results, yes products help the waving process but without putting in work with the brush its all for nothing, think of it this way. Waving is like body building, the brush is the weights, and the products are the vitamins and supplements. Without hardwork it means nothing. Hardwork gets results not just in waving but in life.
WB: How’s it feel to be a WAVE KING!?
Vega: I love being a WaveKing it gave me a chance to promote myself for all the wave knowledge I possessed, and it put me in the spotlight for all to see what I was working so hard for. It gave me a chance to help other wavers. There’s nothing better than seeing someone work hard and grow into an Elite Waver.
