Sir Cruse Before Fame
In 2009, he started uploading videos on YouTube for fun. It showed him, his friends and family goofing around, as well as Cruse flexing his muscles. Bodybuilding, reading and writing poems are among Cruse’s hobbies.
Two years after posting fun and muscle- flexing videos, he started uploading about his elaborate 360 waves, with tutorials on how to achieve them. He finally caught the world’s attention.
How Did He Get into 360 Waves?
Sir Cruse said he started having interest in “waves” when he was 8 or 9. The rest of the kids in his school also had waves, but Cruse remembered seeing a boy in 6th grade who had the nicest waves he had seen, and who’d obsessively brush his hair.
Curious about the kid’s enviable curls, Cruse followed him to the toilet and tried the boy’s brush on his hair, thinking his hair will “magically” transform into the best curls, which of course, did not happen.
Cruse went on with his journey for the perfect waves by combing and brushing his hair as often as he could. When he graduated, he had deep curls on the top and sides of his head.
His 360- wave obsession took shape around 2008 or 2009, he said, where he took the effort to have a uniquely curly hairstyle by experimenting. Cruse’s wave- building resources were mainly Facebook and some stores that offered tutorials. He was encouraged by the great results and in 2011, with the aim to become the 360 wave authority, started to upload YouTube tutorials.
Waves fit his smooth personality and lifestyle completely and Cruse said he’d never get rid of his curls until he dies. Cruse calls his waves as his “religion” and the brush, his “bible”.
What are 360 waves?
Waves are called such because they resemble oceanic waves or the ripple effect. The 360 wave is named as such because the ripple pattern covers the whole part of the head (i.e 360 degrees). This hairstyle is fairly common among Latino and African American communities.
According to 360 “wavers”, there is no such thing as an “instant wave”. Real 360 waves are a product of brushes and combs, hair kits, texturizers, curl enhancing smoothies, pomades and other hair products. Having 360 waves, they said, is a lifestyle, being that it is a process that needs work and effort.

The second most watched video, “White Boy Thinks His 360 Waves Is Killing”, shows Cruse poking fun at another young new 360 waver. These popular videos show how the hairstyle, culturally linked to Latinos and African- Americans, is slowly seeping into the Anglo-American culture.
His 2012 tutorial video, ‘How to Get 360 Waves w/Tutorial and Steps’, was the first to cross the 500K viewership.
