I think it’s about time I started posting some hair-do tutuorials…with a name like Princess Pin Curls I would be remiss not to.
My first tutorial is the Poodle Hair-do which was made famous by Betty Grable and, later, Lucille Ball.
Normally long hair would need the use of a curling iron to create this hair-do….but I find this too labour intensive. My hair styling mantra is ‘simple and quick’ -I don’t have time to fiddle around with a curling iron in the morning. All my everyday hair-dos are created with the previous day’s (wet) roller set or with hot rollers in the morning. I have used hot rollers for this tutorial as they are quick and hassle free.
Women who wore this hair-do usually had bangs (a fringe). I don’t have bangs and my hair is quite long at the front so I had to create volumous curls in the front section by using larger rollers and heavy-duty mousse to hold the hot roller curls tight/short.
In the photo below the roller on the left has the hair rolled under. In the photo below I’m rolling the hair rolling over.
Place one straight line of rollers through the back section of your hair. This will acheive a soft, even curl that can be swept up nicely.
When you take your rollers out your hair will look something like this.
Lightly tease the base of each curl.
Then do the same at the back of the head, starting with one side then moving progressively to the other.
