Part 1 - pin-curling. I didn't bother to explain how to pin curl - there are lots of good tutorials out there, (one of my favorites is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QmIQlK-HYA) - but you can see how I divide my hair. First into thirds, then the sides in about at my ear. The spray bottle has water in it - it makes my slightly layered ends much easier to curl on my finger!
Part 2 - intro What you need for the style and taking out the pin curls. The silk gauze came from Dharma Trading Co.
Part 3 - styling the hair
Part 4 - decoration & things I forgot A couple of notes and adding some decoration to the style. The product that I recommend is Enjoy Shine & Smooth.
Also, I was forced to watch with the sound off, so maybe you answered this question in one of the tutorials, but I was curious how long you had to wait for your hair to dry. I usually have to let it set for HOURS to get the curls to stay, and that usually results in sleeping in the pin curls, which wind up looking nowhere near as nice as yours. ;)
I let it dry overnight. Anything less than 4 hours and the curls don't stay for me either (and I start with damp hair) so yeah, I sleep in my pin curls. I'm afraid I don't have any magic tips for keeping them nice, I don't even use a scarf or anything.
Iv'e just spent the loveliest, happiest, scrummiest most self indulgent hour (no that's a fib, how can such an education be an indulgence of any kind) reading your articles. I loved them and please can i visit again? Thank You for sharing ..... xDx
That was awesome! I am heading to a ball at the end of the month and this is the time that I am portraying. I was gonna wing it before you put this up. Thank you so much! You are amazing and your hair looks smashing!
