How to do The Pin curls Hair Style
About Pin Curls
Pin curling was started in the 1920s. It became a very popular hair style over the next few decades. Curly hair was a very popular look for woman throughout the twenties and thirties. This was not the easiest hair style to obtain because there were no curling irons or other types of heat styling yet. Pinning curling was one way they used to get awesome beautiful curls. Pin curls are little spiral ringlets of curls. They would twist some hair around their finger and then pin it to their scalp with a bobby pin. Often to make the curl stay they would pin an x through them. Pin curling is not quite as popular as it used to be but it is a great way to get beautiful curls with out causing damage to your hair.
