How to get curls without a curling ironBackstage at Tracy Reese, the hair stylists and makeup artists were given more free rein than usual to create individual looks for each model.
1. Take a large bobby pin and stretch it open, then place a small section of hair in between. (You want the bobby pin a few inches below the roots.)
2. Wrap hair around each side of the pin in a figure-eight pattern. The tighter you twist, the tighter the kink will be.
3. Once the pin is covered, clamp a straightening iron over the whole thing for a few seconds, then pull the pin out.

4. Run your fingers through the curl to create flyaways, or tease it and spray with surf spray for big, messy volume (like in the photo above).
Looks too fly away. Not controlled or even pretty. Bed head would look better! It looks lazy and not attractive at all!!
that's really stupid and ugly. it would be easier to get the look by sticking your finger in a light socket
We used to make curls and wrap them in rags.
Worked pretty well.
Anyone else remember doing this?
That stylist is smokin' crack or somethin'!!! horrible!! what a waste of everything!!
