Here's what I was going for (it's called "Silent Film Star" so it's a 1920s inspired hairstyle):
And here's what I got:
The whole ridge around the top layer of curls - ya, that didn't happen. I've decided to start growing my hair out so once it's a little longer and my layers aren't so short, I'll attempt this again... maybe. :)
Any suggestions on pin curls? Have you guys tried any styles similar to this? How did it go?
