Pin Curls and . . .



happened upon this picture today 
and I was flooded back in time.
Here I am with my mom, probably the late forties.
Do you remember pin curls?
My mom used to roll my hair up in socks, 
created wonderful soft curls, soft to sleep on too.  
And look at that old fridge! 
Oh my . . . the memories.
Happy Mother’s Day my friends.
Cherish your mom, the seasons, your memories.  
‘til next time . . .
love
lynne

I had pin curls for sure. My girls wore sponge rollers to sleep in and I loved putting their hair in curlers. Happy Mother's Day!

I slept in those awful brush curlers. As large as I could get to get some curl out of my hair. Luckily I finally learned to appreciate my curly hair.

That is a fantastic picture!

(It's awesome that you have a picture of you and your mom together; I do not have a picture of my mom and me together but wish I did!)

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

I remember my mother making me wear those rollers with the bristles in the 70s--they were uncomfortable to sleep on. I was glad when she got sponge rollers with clips! They didn't hurt as much. Happy Mother's Day :-)

What a fun photo! I remember pin curls. My hair was short and thin, so my mom would just twirl it in little circles and secure with criss-crossed bobbi pins. It never really did come out all that well - lol!! Happy Mother's Day!

As I was "doing" my hair yesterday with a new dryer/round brush combo, I thought about all the different ways I have styled my hair over the course of 70 years. And I definitely remember pin curls.

Oh, yes. This picture could be of my mom and me. I have many memories of my mother "doing" my hair. Can't say I always appreciated her efforts. Haha. I think she was relieved when I finally was old enough to handle the job myself. Love, love, love your mom's apron. Hugs, Nancy

What a brilliant photograph Lynne ... one to treasure. I remember a young relative having 'rags' put into her hair { scraps of cloth to tie into hair to make curls ! } My sister and I didn't have them for some reason. Happy Mothers Day. XXXX
