How to Use The Sculpture Pin Culer

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I reviewed the sculpture pin curler yesterday but today I thought I'd talk about how to use it! It's very easy, even on the first try. Here's how....

 I start by brushing my hair out, making sure there are no knots. My hair tends to pin curl best on towel dried hair with lotta body setting lotion. Part hair as desired and section off a piece of hair to curl

                                 Choose small or large curls and insert the pin curler at the scalp.


                        Comb the tool through to the end of the hair and wrap the ends around the tool

     Rotate the tool either up or down, depending on your desired style and roll it all the way up to the scalp


                                                                    remove the tool


                                        pin the curl into place or use pin curl clips to secure it

  2. YYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS! i cant wait for the Rita hair! I've been thinking about getting one of those. It's kind of funny. Before i even knew about it i was using a mascara tube so that my pin curls would be consistant in size.

  3. Ooh! Although I am confused as I didn't see where you reviewed it yesterday. lol I'm intrigued by this little device. I never do pin curls except occasionally on the shorted top layer of hair. Like Beth I've used a mascara tube, as I'm all thumbs at forming them by hand. Can't wait to see the Rita hair!

  4. So beyond excited for Rita hair! I haven't quite mastered pincurls yet. I don't really have the patience. I usually just use hot sticks.

    I love your blog!

  7. Where did you buy the pin curler? Any idea if it'll work on short hair? I have a chin length, angled bob right now...

    1. It's only available from vintagehair.com. It's a reproduction of an original vintage styling tool. They have a beautiful box set for $35 plus shipping or you can buy the single tool for $15. My hair is layered with the shortest layer at chin length and it works great. I really helped create a good wave on my Rita Hayworth hairstyle that I did today and you can see those shorter layers are waved.You could probably do a similar set on shorter hair for a 20's or 30's wave or roll all of the hair down for a pageboy or up for a flip. I always try to pin curl so that the curls are placed no higher than my ear otherwise, I look pretty crazy! Here's the link to the tool and I will be posing a full review this weekend!! http://www.vintagehair.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13

  8. Terrific how-to, sweet Brittany. I tend to use rag curls more than pin curls, but that's only because my pesky nickel allergy can turn all those bobby pins against my scalp into something of a nightmare. That said, I do do them sometimes, and would definitely give this handy tool a spin if I got the chance.


    Wishing you a thoroughly stellar weekend!

  9. I saw your post and instantly wanted this magic device. I live in Belgium so I wanted to see how much the postage was.
    I had 2 choices $12,50 or $79,50. I guess with the first option it will arrive after 6 months and the second option is just plain silly.
    Now I'm sulking in a corner :(

    1. Hi Cara,

      I've just checked for you. $12.50 is for airmail which is 3-10 days shipping. the $79.50 is for super fast express post only.

    2. Thank you! Damn it, now I have to buy it! ;)

  10. 6 months?! That's madness!! I know it comes from Australia, but I cant imagine anything taking that long. I wonder if they can give you a more accurate shipping estimate if you email them? Well, if you don't want to wait 6 months, I hear that you can also use these clothespins and they do the same thing!! http://www.etsy.com/listing/95343926/clothes-pins-doll-pins-round-flat-end

  11. My dad wlked in on me pin curling my hair the other day and said, "I don't see why you just don't take a pencil and wrap all of your hair around that." Not wanting to get into all of the technique that goes into pin curling, I just answered with, "Uhhh, that might work." and continued to curl my hair. He looked at me, shook his head and said, "I still think that my pencil idea would work better." Looks like there was more to his pencil idea than I had originally thought! :D

  12. Ever since I read this post a week or so ago, I haven't been able to stop thinking about the tool! I'm going to break down and get it, I have a feeling. I'm not very good at creating the rolls by hand, so I'd been using foam rollers to achieve the look, but it's so much more uncomfortable than sleeping on bobby pins! Thanks for calling attention to such a useful tool!
