I posted this under the "show off your hair" thread, but since probably no one is going to wade through the 300-some pages to find it, I thought I'd repost it here.  These are some pictures from last year of my first attempt at setting my hair:







Apologies to people who've already seen them!

I remember seeing that and loving it! When you posted it the first time my hair was your length and I tried it. Turned out pretty good. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love pincurls! I usually set my hair about once a week. It lasts for about 3-4 days then I am usually ready for a change and blow it out straight. *Warning* these are the crappiest pictures so bear with my horrid fuji camera.

I'm a longtime fan of pincurls. Smiley Especially the super-tight ones that result in so-tight-they're-almost-frizzy-curls.

My next venture will be those flapper-girl waves, which I never can seem to master.

I'll give you my roller set pattern.  Kiss
divide the hair  on the top of your head 5" across and 5" deep.
All these pincurls will be counter-clockwise
Hair from left part to behind left ear
pin clockwise
Hair from right part to behind right ear
pin counter clockwise
Remaining section  (back middle)
pin first row counter clockwise
next two clockwise
last row counter-clockwise
You can vary these to fit your head shape.
I pin mine up after a shower then sleep on them with a scarf around my hair. A quick cool blowdry in the am and  I pop them out  and give it a brush. I swear it's easier than it sounds,lol

I love the classy vintage look, curly hair, dark eyes and bold red lipstick. But my question is this: HOW do you choose a red lipstick that suits you and doesnt make you look like a clown? Is it just trial and error ? or is there some knack to it that I don't knowabout. I'm quite pale with darkish brown hair and blue eyes and was wondering if you guys could give me some tips or a 'how to' link?
hope you dont mind me asking?
any help would be greatly appreciated!
thanks alot
