Pinterest Lies*

Last night, I tried this twisty take on a pin curl to see if I would get gorgeous, glamourous waves that would enable me to sleep in.

So after twisting and sleeping in, I was left with this.

 Thanks, Pinterest! YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES.

Have you tried anything from Pinterest that was a total fail? Please tell me in the comments. I need to know I'm not alone! Check me out on pinterest for some better ideas...

*Just in case you are new to Gouldylox, and don't automatically get my humor, I don't actually mean that the original poster is a liar or that pinterest, as a website, actually sits on a real throne of lies. It's meant to be a humorous look at my giant hair fail.

  1. OMG this is epic! Hahahahahahaha

  2. The "throne of lies" part almost made me spit out my coffee lol.

    As for trying things on pinterest, I've had a few nail tutorials go really badly.

    Might I ask if you put in any type of curling creme or serum in your hair before attempting this? I only ask because when I want waves from French braids, I first set my hair with some serum or creme so that it comes out... not as frizzy, haha.

    LOVE that you posted the picture, you are a GEM!

    1. I put in my usual combo of Kiehl's grooming creme and It Factor Simply It. That is my magic combo for all things style. I swear it makes my hair shiny, dry faster and hold a style longer with no frizz. Maybe a curl creme would have helped? My hair is naturally super straight.

  3. Yep, that's how they first look when you take them out and start brushing - but KEEP BRUSHING and you will have your pin curl waves - trust me!! I set my hair in pin curls for years (wet and dry) and that first bozo brushout is very scary!!

  4. Haha I did something very similiar for my "flapper" halloween costume. I thought I'd put my hair up in pin curls for the actual look, and then when I removed the bobby-pins in the morning I would have beautiful. curls for the next day. Nope. My hair came out exactly like yours!

  5. Maybe I'll try it again. I do pincurls almost every night - I never have issues. The twisting added a bonzo. I did brush it out a lot before I re-wet it and just blew it straight...the size of the bonzo went down, but I don't remember anything pretty coming out of it. Maybe I'll try again.....

  6. I love this!! Do more Pinterest fails!

  7. I haven't used Pinterest or its tutorials, but I remember trying a few from magazines (one for nails and one for hair) and not having them work at all.

  8. Hmmm that's weird, looks similar to my results when I accidentaly brush the curls (with an actual brush, because I wake up at 5 am and forgot that I am not supposed to brush my hair with an actual hair brush). Did you only used your fingers?

    I think it's absolutely hilarious - and amazing! - that you included the picture! Thanks for maing my day (:
