To begin this post I am to clarify that I am not a hairstylist, but I feel like it is important to share this because I am aware that a lot of girls use curling iron daily (THE HORROR)! Which is kind of bugging me... Even before I got my hair bleached I rarely use curling iron, or hair dryer for that matter.
Noww that I have bleached and dry hair ends I get even crazier about heatless curls. There are many many heatless waves and curls out there but pincurling is my favorite method, think Rita Hayworth and Marilyn! Vintage starlets achieved those amazing hair by pincurling.
I often used pincurl method to make my hair more presentable. Like that first picture, the curls were achieved with totally totally heatless way. Granted it is not the most instant way to get the curls but in my opinion, it is worth it.
I love pincurls because:
1. Totally heatless (healthier for hair)
2. Long lasting (way long lasting than just curling iron)
3. Gives vintage vibe
And allow me to tell you how I did it. Materials needed: Bobby pins, hair brush, water spray, and hairspray. Setting lotion is optional but if you want even better hold you can mix mousse into the water spray.
This curl set is bigger and ideal for beginners orr.. lazy people like me. Now that I think of it this pincurls are really "Lazy Pincurls" in comparison to serious immaculate ones. When you are feeling fancy you can take smaller sections and you will end up with more curls hence better control over the curls later on when you brush it out.
I took my hair section by section and spray it with water and roll them downwards, then I go to sleep with those rolls on my hair. You can also start after you wash your hair and towel dried it, careful though if the hair does not dry completely in the morning you wont end up with curls! So make sure that you hair is not too wet.
I really hope that the pictures are clear enough. After I woke up in the morning, I took everything off. Spray the hell out of it!
Well if you like how it looks you can just style the bangs and leave it be, because as previously said this setting is bigger and so it is acceptable. When you take smaller sections you will end up with more vavavoom volume and it needs to be tamed.
I decided to brush them out for more vintage styling. This is because I want softer waves, brush it and mold it till you get the shape you want. Do not forget to hairspray it whence you get the shape that you want!
Aand this is pretty much it. If you do this curls on just your bang it helps with the greasy-ness too, and gives body to flatness on your hair. (psst do not forget to spray again after you finish)
Thanks for sticking around and I hope it helps.
There is a video on this how-to! Watch this for more clarification, especially the brush out for vintage gals I know it is very tricky! If you have any question please do not hesitate to ask me and let us discuss it together. :)) I am still learning too.
