Pin Curls


I put my hair in pin curls last night and slept with them in over night. It was kinda uncomfortable, but I really wanted to see how it would work out. I took them out this morning, and my hair still wasn't dry, which was disappointing (but my hair is sooo thick I expected it). I dried it up a bit, and brushed the heck out of my hair, and I think it turned out well.


I don't think I'll be sleeping in pin curls every evening, but it's a good break for my hair from the heat I usually have to use on it.

These are the shoes Ty gave me as another early birthday gift! I lovee them! The little bows are so cute. 

I hope you all are having a fantastic week!

  11. Oh I love those itty bitty bows!

    And I would love to have your hair just for a day. It's so classy and fun. Even though...I don't really think I'd look classy and fun in blonde hair since I'm Asian...haha

  13. I love it when a lady can pull of a vintage look (it's really not for everyone) so that's why I very much enjoyed this post (I newly discovered your blog).

  14. wow, I think it looks fantastic! Yeah, they aren't the most comfortable thing in the world, that's for sure. I sleep with a padded scarf on, which helps, have you tried rag curls yet? They are so comfy and pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it. I love that dress, by the way. You look gorgeous in yellow! x

  21. I love that dress! Pin curls really suit you! I think they look very natural compared to making curls with heat. Maybe you could try rag curls to see if they are softer to sleep on?

  41. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier! I love pin curls. I never manage to keep them in at night when I try them. I just get pissed and take them out. Much better when I tried them with damp hair during the day!

  59. Ohh that dress is so perfect on your figure! I wish I could pin-curl my hair, but as it's down to my bellybutton and super thick I think it would be a disaster.
