This week’s Fashion Friday is featuring the Sculpture Pin Curler from http://www.vintagehair.com/ I absolutely love how this site and pincurler were created. In the “about” section of this site I read the exact sentiments I feel about modern day hair styles and standards of beauty. So much of today’s fashion is about convenience and less is more, don’t get me wrong rocking the natural look is totally great too, but somewhere along the way we lost the knowledge and tools to create the glamorous and feminine looks from the 20’s-60’s. That is where the Sculpture Pin Curler comes in, this tool is absolutely brilliant! I’ve used similar products but they were too large and tore my hair up. This tool however is perfect for creating the most authentically beautiful hairstyles.
This blog feature is based on my very first impression, usually I’ll give a hair tool a few go’s before I give up on it (like most curling irons I’ve ever used) but I can honestly say I immediately fell in love with this product, and cannot ever see myself giving it up, it keeps your hair in place while you’re rolling it up, but when it comes time to slip your curl off of it and pin it, its a breeze!
How great is this? Not only do you get two fantastic curlers, but they come in the cutest box, plus there is a booklet of several different setting patterns!
Motions is probably my favorite setting lotion, it has a decent amount of hold but is never crunchy!I always do my wetsets the same way, starting from the front, I section my hair off into approximately 1inch pieces, add my motions foaming wrap lotions, and roll my hair under.The sculpture pincurler makes the “rolling process” such a breeze!Oh so many bobbypins!Closer shot of my stand up pincurls.This is what it looks like when I finally get all my hair up into my pincurl set. I usually do my sets in the evening so by the time I wake up theyre dry and ready to be brushed out!Forever taking the bobby pins out of my hair.This is where a lot people panic and wash the curls right out. Yes your hair looks slightly clownish, but it get so much better trust me!All you need is a smoothing paddle like brush. I really love my Denman for this! Just keep brushing as gently as you can, and brush the hair against your hand to avoid the afro frizz look.and voila! Are pincurls a lot of work? Yes. But I think theyre definitely worth it, the curls can last for days, and honestly I find them easier than curling tongs or anything of that sort, and now that I have my sculpture pin curler pin curl sets are worlds easier!Dancing to entertain my nephew staring at me through the window 😉
I tried my best to make the directions for doing pincurls as clear as possible, but I understand type and pictures isn’t always enough, so I’d recommend you check out Ashley Westmoreland’s tutorials on youtube they are absolutely genius! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PBwSXHWvA8
