I'm curious: who among you cut your own hair and are you a trained stylist? Lenore, I too like your stripe. Even with the not fully dry hair, it still looks cute, even if it wasn't what you were going for. Did you also cut your hair? I am working up the courage to give it a try myself tomorrow, but my hubby is against, even though I cut his hair (with a trimmer). Sorry your pin curls didn't stick around all day Joe's Sweetheart. I'm no pro, but there are many hair variables at work: if you made a loose curl set, it was a humid day, or your hair was not completely dry when you removed the rollers- any of these or a combo could account for 1 hour curls. For me, only a wet set, with or without setting lotion, fully dried, gives me all day curls. It is tougher when my hair is longer, but that has to do with my hair not being fully dry in the morning. Plus I live in Seattle, which is a dampish most of the time, but I love the look of curly hair.
