how to do pin curls

These spirals of hair will jut out from your head like little knobs, rather than lying flat like traditional pin curls.
Ever wondered how to curl your hair without damaging it? Then try pin curls for an easy, retro-inspired curling method that doesn’t use heat.
For bantu curls, you will be spiraling your hair into little stacks on top of your head.
The curls will not be ready until the hair is completely dry, but similar to traditional pin curls, using a blow-dryer can ruin your hard work.
Once you are certain your hair is dry, remove all the bobby pins beginning at the back and working towards the top and front.
Use pin curls as a substitute to a curling iron to avoid damaging your hair with heat.
To create pin curls, you must start with damp hair.
Use a cotton bandana or scarf to absorb excess moisture from you hair, and avoid using any fabric that the pins might get caught in.
Starting at the front of your head, take pieces of hair about one inch thick, and twist them until they become very tight and rope-like.
Although you can just spray your hair to wet it, washing it will give you a clean slate and your curls will last for longer.
Make sure that it smooth and has no tangles or teasing, as this will make your hair more difficult to remove from the headband style.
Start by unravelling the strands of hair at the back of your head towards the front.
Starting from the back and bottom of your hair, take all the pins out and slowly unravel each curl.

I used motions setting lotion or I'll spray my hair with water, using medium sized foam roller in place of the brush rollers for my bangs and to ward of denting I took one of my long thin metal pin clips and clipped it in the middle of the sponge roller to hold the curl in place, worked like a charm no dents to report.
I think you were the one who recommend Lottabody setting lotion in another post and I find it works great on my hair which doesn't hold curl very well, with the Lottabody I've had people think my hair is naturally curly.
Some people with finer hair simply separate and fluff the curls with fingers, I use a brush without much caution, but my hair holds the curl well.

Another way would be to actually wrap the hair around the fingers and keep it flat against the scalp.
Once the pin curls are out use a comb or a brush to smooth the hair out and actually do a little bit of teasing underneath to give a little fullness into it.
No matter if you have wavy hair or curly hair, you want to start on the top of the head so you won't get like tangled with the rest of the hair.
So now I'm going to show you how to actually pin curl your hair.
Its two different things but the razor will be a little bit different, but it is the same process of wrapping the hair around the fingers.
You will either put a little bit of hairspray and then heat it up with a hair dryer so you can heat it piece by piece.
Wrap the hair around your finger, and make your way down.
When you keep it up like this it will give you a little bit more volume in the hair instead of being so flat.

Create a vintage hairstyle using modern tools! Super quick and easy for those lazy hair days.

Pin curls became popular in the twenties when sassy, young flappers wanted fluffy curls in their hair but didn’t have access to the sort of heated styling products available today.
Spray a small amount of hair spray on your curls after removing the pins.

If you don’t have bangs, an easy way to create a longer pin curl is to twist the section of hair around finger, then gently remove the curl from the finger and hold it against the head.
I like to mist my dry hair with water and put my curls in the morning or early afternoon, then go about my day with them in and take them out in the evening before I style my hair in a lovely style that I will wear for a couple hours while I make dinner and putting my kids to bed and then drinking a bit of wine in my pajamas on my back porch, pretending I’m entertaining company with a lovely dress on.
So between the hair rat, pin-curls, and back combing, we are well on our way through easy vintage styling at HTHG.
To put it bluntly, I am a mom to 2 young children and a ‘wife’ who runs a business and works part time and does many other things as well and I don’t spend a lot of time perfecting and polishing things, namely, my own hair.
About a year ago I guess it was, I discovered the hair rat ( a great 1940’s hair styling tool) and it changed my life and my whole attitude towards hair.
Hi babes! I regret that I haven’t followed up with any pin-curl posts practically since Grandma Suzi-s pin-curls! I did a little short hair pin-curl inspiration with doo-rag mama last year, which seems like forever ago.

~ This is also an set pattern from the 40s.  I like this one (i did it last night) because it says that it looks good on girls with long faces (like me).  It made my eye length modern bangs look like an honest to goodness retro fringe, although i prefer to do it with a flat iron because my pin curls were not consistent in size.  I also ALWAYS add more curls to the back because i have pretty thick hair and i just like some more in the back.  And you cannot from the picture, but there are two wonderful pin curl waves.

I’ve always known thick, blunt ends won’t hold a curl, and that long layers work best for beach waves, but it wasn’t until I read how to make your curls stay by Hair and Make-up by Steph that I realized the health of your hair plays an important role, too.
If I could only give you ONE piece of advice about how to get your curls to last, it’s this: roll each fresh curl around your finger, fasten it to your head with a bobby pin, and then, when all of your hair has been curled and pinned, spray with hair spray, leave for 10 minutes, and remove the curls one by one.
I have long thick hair, and I’ve noticed that when I curl my hair with a regular curling iron, it doesn’t last more than an hour.
I’ve recently discovered how to give my thick, naturally curly hair perfect beach waves without using a curling iron.
In fact, since I wrote my 5 beauty tricks to make your face look thinner post a few weeks ago and discovered that sleek, straight hair makes your face look fatter, I have been obsessed with figuring out how to transform my dull, boring locks in beautiful, face-framing curls.
For years, I always thought the 2″ barrel curling iron was the secret to sexy, curly hair, but after spending some time over on The Beauty Department, I finally know what size curling iron I should use.
This process does make the dry time kinda long, you could use a blow dryer on it too but I don’t like using blow dryers on my hair so I take a shower in the early evening and let it dry while I’m sitting around at home.
It takes me LESS time to curl my hair with this method, and the end result is always bouncier curls that last all day long.
I find it easier using a straightener instead of a curling ironto curl my hair and it’s surprisingly faster .
The good news is, with a little research and practice (okay, a lot of research and practice), I’ve finally figured it out, and today I’m going to teach YOU how to curl your hair and make it last.
Before you bust out the curling iron, make sure to apply a heat protector to your hair so you don’t damage it.

These bobby pin "curlers" are perfect if you have hair that struggles to hold a curl, or if you just want your curls to remain voluptuous and bouncy all day! I learned how to do these curls from back in my modeling days– I guess I did pick up a few skills from modeling! 😉 I modeled in NY and Utah… And the modeling in Utah is a whole lot of prom and bridal.

This sounds great, a couple things that might help, if you have really fine hair, and are having trouble keeping the shape if the curl, you can use a bobby pin to secure the curl and keep it 'round', also, if you do this while hair is a touch damp, and spray with hair spray for 'hold' before foiling, the steamed hair will hold a little better, and the spray will help for a longer hold.
I am a cosmetologist, and while I can see how one might say "Hey that would probably work", I really didn’t expect the results I got when I tested this pin out on my good buddy Camille (and a total babe, seriously check her out, great hair, simply fabulous…you rock, thanks Mille!).
Hold the ring and put it onto the foil (still holding the ring) and lay the ring sort of flat onto the foil (like a six) and fold the foil up and around the hair.

Finger waves look different on different people, depending on hair type and the length of time you brush it out.
Lately, many stars have been showing off their own versions of this vintage look, which creates a classy old world appearance that work well on a variety of hairstyles and hair lengths.
Finger waves and pin curls work well with all lengths of hair.
Of course, looking back, these strong women not only had great taste in hair and clothes, but they also had steadfast beliefs and helped pave the way for many of the freedoms women enjoy today.
Two types of hairstyles that were popular during that time period and into the 1930s are finger waves and pin curls.

To make the curls you take a small section of hair (the larger the section the loser the curl will be as well), wrap it around your finger , then pushing the hair off your finger so it’s flat against your head use a bobby pin to secure it in place.
Whether you have straight hair and long for luscious waves and curls or have curly hair and are just striving for a way to tame it without resorting to straightening it, most curling methods like irons and hot rollers are not only tedious and difficult but also can cause a lot of damage to your hair when used too often.
If you’ve curled your hair while it’s dry you can leave them in for a couple of hours, making sure to set the curls with hairspray.
Pin curling your hair while it’s wet will produce much more defined and long lasting curls while pin curling dry hair will result in loser, more wave like curls.
Finally, if you’re looking to achieve a wavy look rather than curls an easy trick is to braid or twist your hair after your shower and let it dry over night.
If you’ve curled your hair while it’s wet, make sure to leave the pins in until the hair is completely dry.

Re: How to keep curls in (without ten ton of hairspray)When I had long hair, i would curl it with a 2" curling iron to achieve those long ‘california’ girl curls.
Re: How to keep curls in (without ten ton of hairspray)I use my flat iron to curl my hair.
Re: How to keep curls in (without ten ton of hairspray)Try curling your hair with a flat iron.
Re: How to keep curls in (without ten ton of hairspray)I use the Jilbere de Paris Spiral Barrel Curling Iron to make my curls, and I love it! I feel what you’re saying about no hairspray, but yesterday I tried this out without it, and it seemed to be fine.
i use heated rollers and they’re really good! i heat them up until they’re really hot and before i roll my hair up into them i cover my hair with moose ( not too much) and then roll my hair up into them then i’ll leave them in overnight, then in the morning when i take them out my hair is really curly so i apply some more moose and a bit of hair spray and mine looks natural and the curls stay in longer.

I’ve tried so many dfferent products and techiniques to give my hair pretty bouncy, soft, juicy, curls but nothing works.
For Frizzy Hair- Apply leave-in conditioner and either hair gloss or butter to smooth out any frizzies.
At that point, my hair has a lot more body from daily activities, constantly touching it, the wind, pollution (ew), etc… You should be able to gage what your hair needs (moisture, hold, etc) once you take the pins out.
I have super curly frizzy hair and i am scared to do this style because I’m scared it wont work.
For All Hair- If you are worried about your curls falling throughout the day add some aloe vera gel to your hair before you do the pin curls.
Then I took a small section of hair and combed it with a wide tooth comb.
See! This is what happens when you don’t apply a light oil or hair butter after the leave-in.
Pin each single pin curl twice, with the bobby pins facing opposite directions so that the hair doesn’t slip out.
For Short Hair- If you have enough hair to do a pin curl this style is still for you.
Make sure you hair shaped/cut according to your face and you will be able wear just about any style.
Don’t u h8t it when u c this BOSS style on sum1 and u try it…epic fail since I don’t have her hair.
I think I did the curls too small for my short hair.
I comb mine out with a wide tooth comb for body because my hair pops back into place easily.
If your hair doesn’t, don’t comb it.
It may also help if you do your pin curls while your hair is wet.
In my experience mine have lasted all day and night because I do them when my hair is at its fullest state, usually when I get home from work.
I then took a spray bottle filled with water and misted my hair lightly for some hydration.
Next, I should have sealed the moisture with either a light oil or hair butter.
The only thing that I can say is try to condition, deep condition and steam your hair as much as possible to bring it back to life.

If you shape your hair into tiny buns rather than wrap around your finger, your curls might not turn out even.
How long to leave in your curls? Once again, it’s going to depend on your hair type and what kind of curls you’re looking for.
Since my hair is super long and thick, I did a few pin curls around my face to “anchor” the wig, and then wrapped sections of my hair and pinned.
Dip upside-down and shake out your hair at the roots–this will blend the curls together for a more natural look.
If your hair is super straight and reluctant to hold curls, there is only so much pin curling can do.
Most people do their hair in a series of pin curls, pull a wig cap over the whole she-bang, and they’re set.
If your hair is straight but holds curl, or somewhere on the “wavy” spectrum, you might get anything from movie star waves to beach bunny hair to structured curls–it depends on the texture of your hair.
