Ever wanted to see what you’d look like with bangs? Here’s a way to try out the look without having to cut your hair (which we all know would be baaaaad ;-)). This style also has a lot of vintage flair.
Pin rolls are a great way to curl your hair since they don’t require special equipment (just bobby pins), and they dry very fast because they don’t have anything in the center to block air circulation. And you can do them by yourself! I am demonstrating the basic technique by making one roll on the front that looks like bangs. Even if you already have bangs, you will still want to look at the technique because it is the foundation for other styles this week. Pin rolls work on any hair length.
1. De-tangle and part your hair. Separate a rectangular section from the part to about 2 1/2. How deep you need to go depends on how thick/long your hair is. Thicker/longer hair needs a shallower section than fine, short hair.
2. Holding hair a comfortable distance away from your head, fold your hair around two fingers, keeping the fold as flat as possible. If you have layers, you can start folding at the point where they would all be included.
5. Take the roll of your fingers and hold it with your thumb in the loop and two fingers on the outside. You can see my hair has fly-aways. If you ever use hair spray, now would be a good time. Otherwise you can smooth it with damp fingers.
