finger waves are pretty hard to do. But the best way to get pincurls would be to sleep with all the pins in your hair. What I’ve had to do for performances (theatre major) is pincurl my hair so it would fit under a wig, but at the end of the night when the show was over, I wouldn’t always feel like taking them out, so I would spray hairspray over my head, go to sleep and take them out the next morning. If you don’t brush them they’ll look a little modern and dangly, but if you do you should get soft retro waves.
biggest misconception is that you should do this with wet hair. If your hair is thick like mine, it doesn’t actually dry if you do that, and when you take them out they’ll still be wet and weigh down any curl that was in them.
does that help? :-)posted about 5 years ago

K well I’ll tell you the two best ways to get a cute look for 2 types of hair:
If you have straighter hair: Use a wave-making texturizing mist/spray right from the shower to towel dried hair. Put it into a twisty bun and leave for ten minutes. Undo the bun and blow dry until it’s dry (remember to use heat protectant!) then, use a curling or even a straightening iron to make soft, loose curls. Spritz with hairspray and anti frizz serum if needed.
If you have curly/wavier hair: Put on a wave-enhancing texturizing mist right from the shower to towel dried hair. Put on anti-frizz and heat protectant serum and blow dry hair until it’s almost 100% dry. Set your straightening iron to it’s lowest setting and run it through your hair, it will turn curls into waves. Spritz with shine-enhancer hairspray and you’re set!

I like bantu knots more actually. all i need is some mini hairbands to hold them together and GENTLY take them out in the morning and it turns out pretty good, although I only use it when my hair doesn’t curl after I wash it XPposted about 5 years ago
