Do you ever find yourself with back-to-back events with no time to wash your hair in between? For me, it often takes the form of a historical ball on Saturday with church the next morning. I usually spray my hair pretty heavily for dancing (making it terrible to manage the next day), and staying up after midnight to wash my hair and then waiting 2 hours for it to dry is the last thing I want to do. This style, ladies, is the solution. Classy bun by night, pretty curls by day!
1. De-tangle your hair and secure is in a mid-height or higher ponytail. Section out the top 25 percent of the ponytail. Before rolling each section, mist it with water or hair spray.
2. Holding the section where you can (above your head would be fine, but more tiring) and begin a pin roll. See the Pin Roll Introduction for more detailed instructions.
All sections are rolled “away” from the ponytail holder. For more specifics about direction, read the note below step 7.
A note about direction
The direction of a pin roll is classified by the direction of the hair you can see in the finished style.

8. Before you go to bed, mist everything down. Let it dry, and the next morning,
You can also recycle the curls with a faux short pony tail into a lovely updo.
