Tried a new hair set on the weekend and wore it to a Sunday showing of The Help with my Mum and Big Sister.
For a change, I attempted the 1940's soft style from Beauty is a thing of the past.
When you first begin trying, pin curls can be quite overwhelming. My advice is to watch some youtube videos (there are lots out there) and once you have learnt the general knack, try some more complex styles. This is where pin-curls sets come in handy, as they tell you how to lay the curls and how to brush them out in order to create new looks.
Here's an example of how I curled my hair in this weekend. The purple are the curls laying towards my face and the pink represent the curls running the opposite direction, away from my face. (Normally I roll them flat and towards my face, a.k.a. all purple).
Damn, that looks sexy.

I found this set did create a certian wave, what do you think?
I really enjoyed this movie! Not only was the costuming and set-design lovely eye-candy, but the story is intelligent and well-thought out. It acknowledges both the dark-side of humanity and the resilience of those targeted, reminding movie-goers to respect each other and push for positive change.
