Hello fabulous ladies! This is my post which has been featured on the lovely 'Casey's elegant musings'. If you've come from there, welcome to our blog! But for our regulars, as previously requested here's my tutorial on 'Lazy pincurls'.
I get often asked how I do my hair and for years I set my hair into traditional long winded patterns. Then after a hectic night of swing dancing I invented 'lazy pincurls'. A loose seductive set that will take ten minutes setting and five minutes brushing.
You will need:
Setting lotion ( I use 'Lottabody')
A hair brush
I like to set my hair dry. I find my hair is too thick to dry in a set.
The fringe will be set into a marcel wave type look. For this, take a large section of the hair, spray on setting lotion and brush through.
Backcomb the roots of the front.. Then wrap round your finger to form the pincurl, roll it down to your head and secure with bobby pins. The front curl should sit raised as shown below.
Here's the next pincurl. The laziness of this set is really due to the large quantities of hair I'm using. For all the other non fringe curls, spray with lotion, brush through and pin to the head.
Both sides of the head's curls should be facing the front of the face until the parting forms at the back.
Do the same with the other side.
Not including the front, there are only twelve pincurls around my head.
Six rows of two and the fringe.
E.g. Curls facing the front until the parting.
Bish, bash, bosh!
Time to go to bed or leave it be for a few hours.
Nice sleep? Now take out the pins!
I can't say there's a big secret about the brushing! Basically if you've set it well the (ahem) hard work is done. You merely need to brush out every curl and brush the curls to form a beautiful cloud of hair. Brush forward to your face and hairspray.
Here's the finished result!
Good hair day without any effort! Hope you enjoyed my post. Lets get Lazy!
Loves of love
