Vintage Magazine Extract – Pin Curls

I have a stack of old magazines hidden away in my bedroom — and I wanted to share a piece of one with you all today!

This article comes from the August 1950 issue of McCall’s Magazine.  Click on the image for a larger version.

Have any of you ever tried pin curls before?  I’ve tried them a couple times, but never really doing it well.  I suppose it may take a little practice.
If any of you try this, I would love to see pictures and hear about the results!

By the way, the line near the top where it says “For waves, brush dry hair flat, push forward . . . Brush up for curls.” took me a bit to figure out — then I realized that I have heard many times that the way a pin curl style looks after it’s finished is directly related to how you brush out the curls.  Interesting, huh?

Ever truly,
