do redhead's have more fun?
guess I'll find out...
and the secret to a perfect pincurl
is not putting too much hair in the roll
so it is one big curl blob,
rather numerous smallish rolls,
two pins to form an X
but with the pins somewhat hidden in the curl,
so there are no dents
in the final brush out,
and of course don't forget
the Lottabody setting lotion
then top with a scarf to keep it all together.
My grandma says there were hundreds of sets
for different styles, so it wasn't just a matter
of pin curling the hair all over.
There was parting and directional decisions
one row curled left, the next rolled right
for a vintage slicked crown look
or some loose epochal waves,
technique as seen by Cybill Shepard's efforts
in "The Last Picture Show"
before, and after -
this is some serious business...

unfurls a gold satin sail -
sudden winter gust.
