Pincurls! As promised.

I didn't know exactly what to do with the bangs and despite much Googleing, still have found no answer. How should one do short bangs with pincurls?
After "researching"(= tutorial-hopping on Youtube), I found these to be, by far, the most coherent and instructional videos on the entiiiire Internet.
It doesn't hurt, either, that Aya from Strawberry Koi is so gorgeous and so sweet and lovely.
UPDATE: Aya now has short bangs herself! Albeit adorbale Betty Page bangs that go well with curls, but I'm sure I will have more inspiration for my own now.
One last thing to add to the wonders of pincurls (along with their amazing shape and holding power that can be achieved with no other method and no-heat-required wonder), one morning I was feeling sassy (I was wearing faux-leather leggings, hello) so I dampened by hair slightly, and made 6-7 large pincurls, left them for about 30-50 minutes and it was magic. Because pincurls are magical.
Did you know I was putting off school work? Yeah, you probably did...
