The 360 wave hairstyle is one of the oldest grooming disciplines known to mankind. It is achieved through hours of brushing hair to create a laid, buffed & trained enhancement of ones natural wave pattern.
The first recorded evidence of waving is in ancient Nile Valley Civilizations such as Nubia, Kush (Ethiopia), & Kemet (Egypt) worn by some the earliest dynasty Pharaohs and other royalty. Contrary to popular belief, the Pharaohs bald head/wig wearing custom did not appear until much later in history. Wigs were worn mostly by foreign Pharaohs who became King as conquerers during the civilizations decline.

During the great artistic renaissance of the turn of the century, many turned to chemicals to achieve a wavy style. Soon after came the use of heavy petroleum to physically glue the hair into place. While the style was admired during its day, the damage was often too much to sustain.
Since 2000 there has been a return to the classic style of waves with an emphasis placed on the pure organic nature of the pattern. Welcome back Kings. Were not royal simply because we wave. We wave because we are royal!
