Halloween is my favorite excuse to dress up, so as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, I created these simple pin up waves using the Conair Curl Secret.
My hair is notoriously hard to curl, so I was anxious to try out the Curl Secret to create my pin up waves. This unique take on a curling iron did an amazing job of creating a long-lasting look. I've used it a few times since and it really does create uniform curls quickly. That's important when you have 3 children that demand a lot of my time.
See for yourself and create your own Pin Up Waves with my video tutorial.
Step 1: Curl your hair with the Curl Secret curling tool.
For more detail of how to use the Curl Secret, here's a video from Conair.
Step 2: Brush out curls into waves.
Use a softer bristled brush brush. Avoid a paddle brush or one with hard plastic bristles.
Step 3: Set waves with bobby pins.
Allowing your waves to set in place will ensure a you get pin up waves .
Steps 4 & 5: Remove bobby pins and swoop hair to one side.
For a Veronica Lake look, cover one of your eyes with your hair.
To recreate this look, or hundreds of others, grab your own Curl Secret. I bought mine at Walmart since it's only $99 there compared to $150 at www.buycurlsecret.com and www.curlsecret.com.
