Finger coils are easy to do and can be achieved on a variety of lengths. The style can last about a week or longer and can be transitioned into different styles by separating the coils, or putting them into a French roll or other pinup styles when the coils get older. Think of finger coils as a more defined coil you create using your fingers and a styling product to give your style medium hold without the crunchy, dry feeling.
