Pin Curls - an old-fashioned method to re-visit.

There’s something about pin-curling that’s unlike any other way of curling—the curls really have a resilience and mold-ability that isn't usually found with other curling styles. You can brush it a lot without losing the curls, and you can get in there and shape it how you want it to be. It’s super fun, and the effort is totally worth it. There's are other pluses - you don't use heat on your hair, you can curls before bed and save big time in the morning, and you can brush into softer curls or just finger comb for a scrunched look!

STEP #1: BRUSH YOUR HAIR
Beginning with towel-dried hair, brush your mane to ensure it’s free of any knots or tangles.

STEP #2: SECTION AND PIN
Grab a one-inch section of hair at the front of your head, twist it from root to tip, then twist the twist around itself to form a bun. Pin the bun into place with a bobby pin or two or a clip, then continue to take one-inch sections and create mini buns all over your head.  
  • The size of the section will determine the tightness of the curl.
  • Create triangular section so finished curls flow together and don't leave gaps.
  • If you have thick hair, partially blow-dry hair to barely damp or it will take too long for your curls to dry.

STEP #3: SET YOUR STYLE
Spritz your mane with a curl spray to set your buns.  Wella's EIME Perfect Setting Lotion Spray is a good one.

STEP #4: SEAL WITH HAIRSPRAY BEFORE REMOVING PINS.  (You can skip this step if you are leaving your pins in overnight.)

Leave your style to sit for 10 minutes post-hairspray.

STEP #5: TAKE OUT YOUR BUNS
Gently remove your buns to reveal gorgeous, curled hair.  Brush for flowing curls.  Finger comb or a scrunched look.
