4. Band Bouffant
This is a style for medium or chin length hair which is slightly layered to eliminate bulk at ends. The hair is pulled straight back, fluffed a little behind the ears and has a natural pouf at the crown, created by the headband.
To Set: Roll crown hair back from face on four big rollers and roll rear sides down on two. make two off-the-face pin curls at temples, one over the other, and two rows of pin curls at the nape.

5.Brush Cut
This needs no setting. You just shape it with a hairbrush. It’s thinned and tapered, light and airy and especially good for fine hair which can’t keep a curl. To style it you simply lift and flip it into place with a brush when its wet. Quiches are brushed forward in front of the ears; bangs are brushed forward from a pivot point just in front of the crown. For evening, bangs can be brushed into a swirl around the crown

6.Smooth Curl
Sleek and head hugging for short hair. It’s layered all over, has a long shingle in back, and bangs brushed on the bias to join double quiches at the cheeks.
To Set: Roll top front hair across from left to right on three rollers with a fourth facing the opposite direction. Make four pin curls at sides, two over two, set nape hair with one row of pin curls and stick the wispy front bangs in place with a bit of transparent tape.

That’s all !
