Pin Curls are a very vintage hair style that's been around for MANY MANY moons, and are essential to Leather Jackets & Red Lipstick. There are two types of Pin Curling, Standing Up & Lying Down. Standing Up is where the curls are, well, standing up on the base x) & Lying Down are when the curls are pressed against your head.
This is a good example of Standing Up Pin Curls, Thank you X-Tina:This is a good example of Lying Down Pin Curls:
I've been doing pin curls, fake-bettie bangs(as well as real ones when I used to cut my hair regularly & had nice Bettie Bangs x), and victory rolls for the past 6 or 7 years & people have always wanted to know how I do them. So now I'm going to attempt to show how to do all three in two posts.
WHAT I USED:
Beyond The Zone Demented Styling Goo
A MILLION bobby pins
one Medium-sized hair roller
a rat-tail comb
& a water spritzer
I APOLOGIZE THE CURLS ARE VERY HARD TO SEE THANKS TO MY DARK HAIR. AND PLEAE FORGIVE ME FOR NOT WEARING ANY MAKEUP D':
You can do Pin Curls either first thing in the morning or before your go to sleep at night, either is fine. I'm doing them right now @ 6pm pst so I can sleep in them & do my hair tomorrow in Victory Rolls, which will be PART TWO.
You can do Pin Curls with your hair damp or dry, but it's better to do them damp. Just take my word for it.
Part you hair either down the middle or to the side. I prefer mine to the side. Since my hair is dry, I'm using the water spritzer to dampen it a little.
After sectioning off your hair into small amounts, take a pea-sized amount of the goo on the tips of your fingers & work it through the small section of your hair. Then you take the very tip of the section & curl it inward on it's self till you get to the base of your head and pin it to your base.
& repeat till your done with your whole head.
For the faux-bangs I section out the hair used for the bangs, then I set it in a medium sized roller. You can do this damp or dry.
Now I'm gunna eat dinner, read a good book, then hit the sack & we'll see how it turns out in the morning :D
