Video Vault: Salsa hair comb

Salsa 2A recap! Plus my additional annotations as follows:
0:20 - this applies to West Coast Swing as well
1:00 - keep in mind that the "comb" is the girl's hand. It's creepy if the guy's hand becomes the comb
1:18 - Yep, it's creepy when dancing with a stranger and this happens. Don't do it. Right now I don't know any leads that uses that handhold either and I'll most likely freak out in socials when that happens.
1:47 - Ladies, here's something to add for your styling vocabulary!

This hair comb move is also called Aladdin. It's also usually preceded by a cross body lead inside turn. This move sometimes follows up with a close hold so the guys can do another CBL move.
