A Wartime Pin Curl Set

Phew! It's been a busy couple of days here at Shermanville! With my Instagram vintage sale in full swing, I've been pulling out new pieces every day and listing them. Since not everyone is on Instagram, I decided to continue the sale on my facebook page. See all of the vintage clothing and accessories for sale here


Anyway, I was looking through sole of my old magazines this morning and I thought you might enjoy this gorgeous pin curl set from American Hairdresser magazine, October 1940. If you master this single set, you can style it two different ways. I can't wait to give this one a shot!

  1. Makes my paltry efforts of dragging a brush through my hair look amateur!

  5. Thank you so much for posting! I feel that I have finally mastered the art of consistently good, basic pin curling so this would be the next step. I would absolutely love it if you could do a post on preserving pin curls through an extra night. I have looked online but can't find anything. Thanks!

  6. Wow, I feel pretty confident in doing pin curls, but this looks pretty daunting! If you come up with any tricks or discoveries when you try it, please let us know! I'll attempt these soon, i think, but I'm not feeling to great about the idea combined with my skills...
