After weeks and weeks and probably months of planning to do this, I finally got round to trying out pin curls at the end of last month. It was meant to be for a dinner party, but ended up being just drink in the end.
I’ve been rolling the hair on the top of my head up quite a bit recently, and I always ended up getting one pin curl like wave when I took it apart at the end of the day, so I had some inkling it was gonna work but generally me and curls are not a great combination – they always go flat within 10 minutes. So when I tried the pin curls I took no chances and put in loads of curling cream to hold them in place and I left the pins in all day to make sure everything was really really dry. Here I am with my headscarf:
And it worked! They did collapse a bit after an hour or so, but were still recognisable as curls when I got home after my night out. I’m not sure I’ll make a regular feature out of this because with my thin hair I do need a whole day for them to dry, and wandering about with a headscarf is a bit odd, but for a special occassion, definitely!
Have you ever tried pin curls?
