Whilst I rest on this Saturday night, as promised I've put together a small selection of pictures & tutorial for my daytime 1940s hairstyle. I hope this is some help for some of you that have asked. This is purely my way of doing this hairstyle yet everyone's hair reacts to different treatments/ways of rolling.
Here below is how I usually like to wear my hair. I like this style because it can fit into a daytime or night time look - it also can look great with the curls left in or brushed out.
Word of warning - please excuse the quality of the pictures. I always roll my hair quite late at night and another note a few pictures down I'm wearing no lipstick (ah)! ..
Step 1: Wash hair and blow dry - it's fine to let it naturally dry also. Apply a mousse or setting lotion to help the curl stay longer. Make sure hair is tangle free and in a centre parting.
Step 2: Prepare your rollers - for this current style as my hair has grown I use the largest roller. I use round 16 of these large rollers but don't worry if you run out and have to use the size down. As you may know I like to use bendy rollers as they're much comfier to sleep in.
Step 3: I take around an inch section of hair for each roller and start at the front. Roll downwards and attach. Do the same for each section of hair.
Step 4: Follow this pattern from the front to back - do the same to the sides of the hair also. If you find you have smaller pieces of hair left over especially at the sides and back, just pop in a medium sized roller. It's okay to take your time! When all sections are rolled, just spray a little hairspray & pop on a headscarf - then sleep (or not)!
Step 5: So you have woken up and you're ready to take out your rollers! Take all rollers out carefully, you may start to think that your curls look a little silly but don't fret it gets better! When all rollers are out, find a small tail comb if possible and part your hair to preferred parting - i like the side parting! When hair is parted start to brush your hair.
Step 6: As you start to brush your hair it may look a little frizzy but that's okay, brush to your desired effect. For this style I was brushing and altering for around five minutes.
Step 7: Eventually you should have your desired curls, you can brush for as long as you like - for example if you prefer a softer wave this would be achievable. To finish spray hairspray to keep your style intact for the day.

Headscarf - this is a suitable way to keep your rollers intact and cosy for the night!
