Many people spend hours preparing their hair in the morning in an attempt to get it just right for the day ahead. Rather than spending all that time in the morning, prepare your hair the night before and let it set in place while you sleep. Using a few pins and a "roll" technique with your fingers, you can wake up with a head full of perfect pin curls that will last the entire day.
Things You'll Need
- Bobby pins or other flat hairpins
- Hair spray
Wash and moisturize hair. Create a deep part in damp hair using a fine-tooth or rattail comb. Section off a 1-inch piece of hair for medium curls. Larger sections of hair will create looser curls. Smaller sections of hair will create tighter curls. Optionally, spray this section with hair spray.
Place one fingertip next to the base of the hair section. Wind the hair section around this finger in a clockwise circle. Don't twist the hair while winding it around your finger. Tuck the end of the hair section inside the circle. Slide a flat hairpin over the hair circle to hold it in place. Secure with another pin, forming an "X" over the hair circle. Repeat with your entire head of hair. Spray with hair spray and sleep on the curls.
Unclip and unwind each section of curl in a uniform fashion. Loosely shake out the curls; shape as desired. Spray the hairstyle with hair spray; it will hold its shape for the day.
