Ah the cliché "Beauty Queen Wave" . Just for fun I looked it up and found out the proper way for ladies to wave... although I doubt any of us will ever really need it, it is still somewhat amusing.

"Author Elissa Stein offers pointers in her book "Beauty Queen" (Chronicle). For example: The wave is the first sign of royalty -- it's majestic, elegant and commanding, Stein writes. Here's how to do it: Extend arm out to the side. Bend elbow to 90 degrees. Fingers and elbow should form one vertical line. Slightly cup hand. Without moving fingers or wrist, rotate hand from the forearm. As you wave, slowly turn head from side to side, making eye contact with admirers. Smile!"
