pin curls.comb damp hair and part into small sections. You’re going to pin each curl with a standard bobby pin, so sections must be small. Wind each curl around your finger smoothly. Pin each curl in place with a bobby pin.Gently tie a silk scarf around your hair before going to bed. In the morning remove pins and gently finger comb your hair. Letting pin curls fall loose from a side part was one of the sexiest 1940’s hairstyles.
