From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hair crimping is a method of styling usually straight, long hair so that it becomes wavy, often in a sawtooth fashion. This is usually achieved by treating the hair with heat from a crimping iron or by braiding the hair, often in multiple strands, then undoing the braids.

In 1972, the modern crimping iron was invented by Geri Cusenza, one of the co-founders of Sebastian Professional.[1]

Crimping peaked in popularity during the mid 1980s.

In the American South, it is usually referred to as crimping, but also can be called krinkles or deep waves.

In 2007 at a Chanel Runway show crimped hair was shown on a model, and it became more popular throughout late 2007 and 2008
