Oh, I love flapper waves. I've been meaning for ages to buy the pins so I can do that hairstyle. But I can understand how that one piece will drive you bonkers. The hair around my face a tendency to go east west if I don't put extra product so I know all about pinning things into place. Have you tried finger curling or I think it's called skipcurling that one piece? I've never been able to do the technique myself (my hair prefers scrunching) but some make it looks ridiculously easy. I think waterlily716 had a video on it about styling side bangs.
