Anyway, I've been playing around with hairstyles a lot lately and have stumbled upon an easy one that I really like. When I wear my hair this way, people always tell me I look like a pin-up girl or a Hollywood starlet from the 40s. I'll take it!
I've had some requests on Instagram for a tutorial on this style, so I took process pictures as I was doing my hair today. I had to use mobile technology (read: selfies!) to make this happen, as it is really difficult to do your hair and take pictures at the same time.
So here we go! First, I should tell you that my hair is thick and slightly wavy. It holds curl well. My cut is a side-parted, chin-length bob with textured layers at the end. My bangs are a couple inches long and I wear them swept to the side. Your results will vary with your hair cut and type.
1. Start the night before. These pics were taken taken when my hair was just washed. I applied some cheap hair gel throughout and blow-dried. (This looks works even better with unwashed hair, however!) Section off your bangs and roll them around your fingers into a loose pin curl. Pin in place to one side. Make sure the curl is not smushed flat, and is allowed to stand up slightly.
this cool pin curl tool (not with the comb ends, I'm just using the smooth middle part to wrap my hair around).

You don't need a special tool, just something round (about 1/2" to 3/4" wide) that you can wrap your hair around.
4. Remove the tool and grab onto the roll. Pin a bobby pin up the center of the roll so that it's hidden.
