I have been wanting to try the “Sculpture Pin Curler” for quite some time so I finally bit the bullet and ordered one a few weeks ago. While I can set my hair easily and quickly in the same basic set I use all the time, I wanted to see if this made a difference and would help me with trickier sets and more uniform curls.
When it arrived I set my hair the way I usually do which you can find HERE. I have to admit – the fact that it picked up all the ends together was wonderful. I would absolutely recommend this to a beginner…especially if you are having trouble with getting pin curls right. This could have saved me a lot of tears in the early days. However I found even the larger end was just a bit too small for my hair – I have really thick hair and a lot of it – I ended up with huge doughnuts sticking out from my head. I had to use much less hair than I normally would in one pin curl – meaning I ended up with almost twice as many curls as usual. The next day I brushed it out and voila…
Before I wrote a review though I wanted to try another set. This time I used this set (which is almost the same as above but the top section in rolled toward the back of the head instead of to the side.
Unfortunately as I tried to do less pin curls than the first set the next day they still weren’t dry in the morning. I left them in all da but took them out before bed and the next morning I woke up like this…
Over all I quite liked it and think it will be helpful for precise sets. I really do wish it came in a larger size. It is reasonably affordable and the box set comes with a second pin curler (for your handbag), some setting patterns in a booklet (which don’t really appeal to me) and a poster of hair styles. I probably would have been fine with just the “refill” pack as I found it user friendly enough and easy to figure out. I also doubt I will use the second one unless the first one breaks as I don’t tend to need to curl my hair when I am out. I just spray the heck out of it with hairspray. If you are already a veteran pin curler and you have your sets down pat you might find this just slows you down. It normally takes me 5-10 minutes to set my hair. The first time I used the pin curler it took 2 hours (as I realised they were took thick and needed to be redone) and the second it took an hour. But it definitely made the ends neater than they normally are when I curl them.
I really think this product would be best suited to beginners, people with layers that struggle to get all the ends in a curl and for those with fine-regular hair thickness.
