Sharon Blain's tutorial is a classic reverse pin curl set. This technique teaches the direction of flat wave placement when considering natural partings and hair length. It demonstrates finger dexterity and the direction of reverse pin curls and how to brush through from the root area and place with the same control as wet finger waves. 

The final result is a refreshed take on a classic technique with echoes of 20's flapper culture and overtones of The Great Gatsby.
