How To Style Pin Curls

How to style pin curlsHave you ever wondered how to style vintage inspired pin curls? Just follow these simple steps! 1. Pin up all of your hair except for a section at the bottom. 2-4. Spray with water and begin taking small sections (about 1 inch) and rolling the hair up to the root. Pin in place. 5-6. Once you finish with the bottom section, release a new section from the pinned hair and continue as before. Do this until all hair is rolled and pinned in place.  If you have any shorter hair left on the side, take it and pin it around one of the curls. 7-8. Finish off your bangs by wetting thoroughly and rolling to the hairline.

Tips: If you have shorter bangs you may need mousse or gel to hold them in place. These curls are also great as “no heat” curls, but using bobby pins will create a dent in the curl.  Instead, use 2 prong curl clips (also known as pin curl clips).

  • I like to change different kinds of hairstyle in the summer. Just like a hairstyle designer. It makes me happy.

  • I love just putting one pin curl from my grown out bangs to the side of my head. It adds a vintage touch of cuteness and elegance at the same time, totally my style
    xo, Lydia

  • Looks/locs can be deceiving I bradeid my hair for 20years and the front tells the story, it is quite thin. I try to latch maybe once every 2 months, but recently I have not done much at all with it, I find it tedious and a nuisance, dont get me wrong locking my hair was the best decision I ever made for my hair, but, my hands usually have glue or some kind of harmful product on them and I would rather work on my mosaics and crafts than my hair. Peace My lady LayLay!Hugs P

  • It depends on how hot your srehigatentr gets when it’s on mine is warm but not hot, so I can hold it like she does. But if yours gets too hot, there’s also gloves to protect your hands, I believe.

  • I really like this photo. You were an adaorble baby. I like the pin curls in your mom’s hair. I am a few years older than you but I don’t have photos of family like you do. Thanks for sharing this wonderful photo.

  • Valerie Pearson – Cassie These are amazing. And I don’t mean I’m your frneid amazing or wow, great camera amazing. I mean girl, you have an amazing gift amazing. Professional quality with creative backbone. Love them!

  • That is some good hair! My boys have long hair, too. They look delightfully Californian. But ask my Mid-western retvilaes and they will say um, your boys need haircuts.

  • I mangled my arms from wtrsis to elbows with a combination of martial arts (included some fairly serious lifting in my training regimen), climbing, hockey and driving a computer all day. And when I say mangled I mean at one point I couldn’t pick things up with my hand oriented palm down; the force necessary to grip an object as light as a hardcover caused intense, shooting pain.I ended up (purely by accident, I blame the Mrs.) getting heavily involved in yoga practice. I’m bigger and stronger (and never lift weights), more flexible, and all my joint pain (knees, hips, back, elbows and wtrsis, accumulated as described above) is much diminished or gone.The only major changes to my physical activities as mentioned above are; no more climbing, and much more hauling around of children.

  • Apr26Aditya Khanal Sharukh does not need to make it a huge issue. Whoever comes to US must go through the seitrcuy process, it is a normal procedure. When anyone is busted into seitrcuy stuff, they may be questioned, the question session may go one hour to nine hour, it all depends on how well you cooperate to the seitrcuy officials. In the same scenario, john abraham, Salman Khan has also gone through, but they never brought these into media so wildly, Sharukh is a normal passenger only when he goes through the airport, please request to shahrukh not to let his stardom go on top of his head. stardom has nothing to do with seitrcuy check. Even US president should go through it. Please donot bring minor issue into media,,, shahrukh. we know you are smart in doing advertisement.

  • so cute! i’ve been only wearing vintage hair styles the past couple months and its been so fun! everyday something different, there’s so many different ways to style them!

  • This is one of my favorite go tos {rag curls are another}– the classic ways are often the best, eh?

  • Sweet Pea!



  • This is so cute, i really do love all your posts!.

  • Super Cute! I might have to try it sometime this spring or summer. I’m always looking for cute ways to keep my hair out of my face.


  • Gosh my Mum and her older sisters were teenagers in the ’40s, living in Sydney when the Americans were stationed here. They had servicemen billeted in their house too!. Your pincurl look is exactly what my photos of them look like during those years.
    If you’ve never seen the movie ‘Rebel’, a love story movie based on that time about Sydney burlesque showgirls, find a copy you’ll love it and the look. I think Matt Dylan was in it looking very young and very sexy.

  • I’ve always loved these 🙂 and finger waves. Makes my heart pitter patter ♥ Linz

  • Love pin curls! I used to do those. I seriously look like a grandma though.

  • These are lovely! I’ve never tried doing pin curls, but after seeing this I might just try.

  • Hahaha, pin curls is the very few ways that my hair will actually keep a curl. My mother would do this every night during musical season in high school. It took forever, because my hair is very thick. After that week, she swore she would never do it again. 🙂 It does work very well though.


  • I love vintage hairstyles, but I have trouble getting my hair to cooperate. My hair is long (like to my waistline) and really thick, would pin curls hold? I hope they will. 🙂 I’m loving your hair tutorials Katie!

  • great post, i always wondered how to do pin curls!

  • This is gorgeous and works really well with that shade of hair- I wish mine were long enough!Rx

  • such a lovely hairstyle!!
    gorgeous and classic!
