If you ever want finger waves but don't think you can do them yourself, check out a local beauty school. They may hate you for it, but they know how to do them. haha. I had to learn in order to take my state boards. I only had one person ever come in for them, and at first I was miffed, but once I got to it I started to have fun. And they looked really cute when it was dry.

do you mind if I ask when you took your state boards, and in what state? i am curious. we had to learn to do them as well but they are not part of the Pennsylvania exam. and yes any beauty student will hate having to do them on you. they are difficult, especially if you are just learning. be sure to tip them well and let them know you appriciate them doing it Smiley

 Grin i put rag rollers in my hair last night, i just cut up an old t-shirt into strips and then wound my hair around the strips and tied them, it gives the same look as pin curls but is much easier to do i think,i brushed it out into waves - usually my hair is very straight and wont hold a curl but it stayed. woohoo!!

I basically live off of sponge rollers, which you can use to do just about everything but fingerwaves.  I found a tute for doing rolls, which I did with sponge rollers even though the tute used a curler and it worked very well, especially for my first time doing them:
http://community.livejournal.com/vintagehair/152257.html#cutid1 (tute)

Also, I do the rosie the riveter styly a lot, also with sponge rollers although the tute is just finger rolls.  I can never ever get finger rolls to work.  This is one of my favorite styles because it takes about ten minutes (not including sleeping the rollers, of course):
http://community.livejournal.com/vintagehair/671.html

For a pomp, I usually but my bangs in two rollers, curling away from the face, then when I get up I brush the curls lightly so I just have one curl.  From there, I backcomb the part behind the roll, aka the not visible part, and re-situate it so it doesn't look like a roll and I pin it.  I have fairly short bangs so that's really my only option.  I don't have a tute for this one..

I just found this thread and love it! Right now, I have naturally wavy, hip length hair. For super-vintage, check out my reniassance hair im my display pic.
 I'm trying to save my money to get a whole side-swept long feathered bangs 70's kind of look, but in the meantime, I'm looking for some cool styles. I remember my grandma doing pincurls and rag curls on me when I was little, and they still seem to be the only thing that holds in my super long hair. Plus, my skin is so sensitive, I can't use any sort of hair products.
 Also, anyone have tips for liquid eyeliner for me? I love doing cat eyes, but the standard eyeliner always smudges, and I have trouble applying the liquid stuff.

You might like a pot or cake liner with a flat brush, like this: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P36210&categoryId=RPYMAL&navAction=jump
