How To: Sultry Vintage Pin Curls

Because who doesn't love a good vintage hairstyle, right?

One hairstyle that has been around for centuries and won't be going anywhere anytime soon are pin curls. A hairstyle that is equally easy to create and timeless should grace the head of every woman at least once in one's lifetime.
This hairstyle requires little to no heat, some bobby pins and a whole lot of patience. If you're clueless as to how you can get this perfect pin up look, hair pro Gina Schiappacasse from Hairstory has you covered with a step by step tutorial below.
Step One: You can start off with either damp or already dry hair, totally up to you. You don't want your hair too be too damp, but you also don't want it to be too dry -- add a bit of product making sure you distribute it evenly through your hair.
Step Two: Part your hair in sections, starting down the middle. Keep your sections pretty small.
Step Three: Starting with your first section, take your first strand of hair starting at the ends and roll all the way up to the end. During this process, it is best to begin at the top of your head. Make sure you secure the curl with a few bobby pins.
Step Four: Once you have completed your entire head, you have the option of wrapping your hair with a silk scarf. Call it a night and wait for your hair to completely dry overnight if still damp.
Step Five: Once you wake up, remove all bobby pins from your hair. Break the curls apart and use your fingers to gentle rake through your curls. Shake out the curls and brush through to sculpt your finished product.

Would you wear your hair in pin curls?

@hikaymm you could totally try this with hair clips instead of bobby pins!
My hair is totally too long to try this, but I'm gonna find a way!!!
It recalls a dreamy, slightly bohemian look; blown out my hair is 14" long in front & 17" in the back, but like you said any length can rock this look (even long pixies)!
This is what my hair looks like every morning, once I take my 1" foam rollers out - the longer the hair, the less-tight the curl...
@himaymm I totally agree with @HairConfetti it's definitely doable with pretty much any length of hair.

Princess Diana's Hairstyles
Princess Dianawas — and continues to be — a style icon. Beyond her captivating fashion looks, the"People's Princess"also had ever-changing hairstyles that inspired salon requests for a generation and then some. The iconic short haircut that she famously wore for more than a decade actually almost never happened, according to her longtime stylist Sam McKnight! 1981 For the official engagement announcement on February 24, 1981, the bride-to-be kept it simple, opting for soft layers. 1982 The new royal maintained a similar haircut during her first pregnancy, but added some bright highlights to freshen things up. 1982 The new mom introduced the world to her first son on June 21, 1982, with her hair perfectly swept back on the front and sides. 1983 In 1983, Princess Diana embarked on a major tour of Australia and New Zealand. At the state reception in Brisbane, she dressed up soft waves with the Spencer family tiara. 1984 After Harry was born on September 15, 1984, Diana stepped out of the hospital with a gravity-defying blowout. 1985 The Princess of Wales later returned to her familiar bangs, albeit with some poofy '80s volume. 1989 (jumped to 1989!) The royal looked blonder than ever at the Queen Mother's 89th Birthday celebration. 1992 This style for a royal banquet (shortly before announcing her separation from Charles) definitely embraces the curls. 1995 The "People's Princess" accepted her Humanitarian of the Year Award with super-shiny (and this time, dry) strands. 1997 In the last year of her life, the Princess styled short, blonde bangs. And with that, it's no wonder her gorgeous look defined an entire decade. What do you think! I personally love her hair... but the fact it never really changed surprised me :)
I'm with love with the COCO
Recently, I'm kind of in love with Chanel. So I kind of searched on the types of Chanel bags!!!! Cerf Tote Released in 2005, this bag quickly became part of Chanel’s classic collection. The Cerf comes in four sizes; Small, Regular, Tall and XL Medallion Once a classic style, this lovely tote has now been discontinued. Most recognizable by its oversized CC medallion zipper pull. Shopping Totes (GST, PST, PTT) This is one of Chanel’s most popular classic styles that comes in a variety of sizes. Typically this bag is made in Caviar leather and comes in a variety of colors, most commonly though, in black and light beige. GST for Grand Shopping Tote, PST for Petite Shopping Tote, PTT for Petite Timeless Tote, and XL. Cambon Ligne Made from smooth calfskin leather with a bold CC logo at the side, this very popular style was first introduced in 2004-2005 and were immensely popular. The line has many different styles and color combinations. While most of this line is now discontinued, the Cambon style is still released in WOC bags and wallets. Boy Bags Karl Lagerfeld designed the Boy Collection as an interpretation of the boyish charm that Coco Chanel was known for. Karl was stated as saying that the very spirit of Chanel was inspired by Boy Capel, the love of her life; which is why this new collection is called the "Boy Chanel." Sizes: Small, Medium, New Medium and Large Timeless Clutch Also known as the ‘Kisslock’ clutch bag because of its CC frame closure. Typically this bag is only offered in Caviar and lambskin leather, however it is occasionally made with exotic python. Camera Case Though slightly elusive and hard to find - the Camera Case is released often as part of the classic collection. The camera case is released in various sizes and has evolved from being a small crossbody bag with the classic tassel pull closure. WOC One of the most popular styles, this wallet on a chain is constantly in creation using different styles and materials. The WOC is exactly what its name implies - the interior boasts several card slots, a zip pocket, and flat pockets, all on a chain strap. The chain can be tucked in or worn across the chest. Common Styles: Classic, Timeless, Boy, Half-Moon, Camellia, Cambon. Which one is your choice? My fav is the Boy type :3
