       At this point, we begin separating -to-1 inch strands of hair from the inner perimeter of the expandable comb using our tail comb, combing them smooth with the comb and our fingers and shaping them into large soft coils of hair. These coils are pinned into place to cover the expandable comb using bob pins, arranging them as desired. Continue separating and arranging the strands of hair until the upper half of the expandable comb is concealed. Be sure that you always insert your bob pins with the ridged-side toward the scalp, as this provides more secure traction for the pin and anchoring for the curl.
 
       Next we begin working with the remainder of the hair, separating it and arranging it as desired into the previously described nested coils. It isn't necessary to follow any pattern of arrangement for these curls. In fact, random arrangements usually look better, because they are more organic in design and appear more natural. If you find that your curls are looking "frayed" because of fly-away hairs, apply a light misting of hairspray and smooth the curls with your fingers while you are arranging them.
 
       Continue the arrangement of the hair into curls, making sure to cover the lower half of the expandable comb. You must also be careful not to leave any gaps in the curl placement, but rather make certain that your curls are evenly spaced.
 
       To finish off the style, we lightly sprayed the curls again with hairspray and gently patted them smooth down strays and add definition to the curls. We then used small bands of pearls that we twisted to form four-loop accents. These were positioned around and among the nested curls as evenly as possible to add some visual interest and a little festive flair to the style. The finished effect was a very lovely-looking up-style that would be perfect for wear at holiday parties, or other evening special occasions.
