In order to create the soft, sculpted look of the 1940s, you will need to pin all of your hair in pin curls. As a first step, comb your freshly washed hair well to get rid of all the tangles then towel dry until its damp. Apply a small amount of setting lotion or mousse into your hair in order to make your curls last. Proceed with dividing your locks into small sections, rolling each hair segment around your fingers and then pushing them to the root of your hair.

Fix the curls one by one using bobby pins that can be purchased in any cosmetic store. It is advisable to secure each of your tresses with two bobby pins in order to hold them down and keep them in place. Put the first bobby pin across the middle of the curl, securing the little doughnut-like hair rolls to the hair underneath. The second bobby pin should go in a vertical angle to the first bobby pin, crossing the first one, creating a virtual “X” on the hair roll.
Don’t forget that the thicker the rolls, the looser the curls and the tighter you roll them around your finger, the curlier your locks will be. Continue the same way with the rest of your tresses, creating many little hair rolls and securing them on your head.
When you are ready with the pin curls, leave them in your hair for about 7-8 hours, or preferably overnight, in order to let them dry perfectly and create lasting curls.
To avoid waking up with destroyed curls, you can put on a hairnet to protect your ringlets while you are sleeping.
