alright girls heres the deal...

i have like crimpy/slightly-ringlet curly hair but the thing is..is that my curls start at the root..so its not like its straight at my roots and it gradually gets curly. but im constantly straightening my hair (i wont even go out in public with my hair curly...except at school--which is an all girls high school)

so my m ain point is: how can i like like a slight wave...kind of like mk and ashley wave you know. i was thinking that the best way to do it was to straighten it first then try to do the curling from there? what do you think..

hey hun i think i have a similar sort of thing going on. what i do is straighten my hair to get rid of the bulk, then use my straighteners (GHDs) to curl it. sounds random but straighten each section and twist your hair round the straighteners, hold for about ten seconds then untwist. the result is yummy ringlety waves, takes a while to do the whole hair but well worth the effort

what are GHDs? wow, where do you live? they are ultra slim ceramic straightening irons, GHD is the brand as there are many copies nowerdays but they were the originals. they are pricey at about £95 (UK) but probably the best investment for your hair you will ever find! (no kidding, im not sure how i ever went out the house before them )but i guess you could use other types of straighteners, the only thing is GHDs are super hot and keep the curl (esp with a bit of product before)

Soft shiny curls - How to get them ?
I simply love this hairstyle. I've asked so many people how to get them and
they keep giving me advice on things that " might work " but to
my dissapointment they didn't !

Anyone who can tell me how to get this look ?

My bet :

Kate Hudson : When the hair is damp/almost dry you take sections of hair and wrap it around your fingers, adding a tinny abount of low-hold hair styling product, that'll leave the hair soft and not stiff..I don't think hairdriers are involved..they tend to frizz the hair imo..

Chloe S. : Larger than life Carmen Curlers

If you hair is naturally curly or wavy all these hairstyles should be do-able.

I say curlers, I know they are not used as much as a blow drier, but they totally work, and your hair will dry naturally instead of with added heat...

i have long hair...that i curl all the time.

for the chloe S. look , i do this to my hair quite often. i have a layered cut, which falls to the middle of my back, which helps. i pull my hair back into a ponytail ( high ponytail not low ) and put the hair in medium/large sized rollers, rolling large sections of the ponytail to the hair elastic. i keep it in overnight, so the look will last all day ( the following day) with out using any styling product. when i first undo the rollers the curls are short, and there is at least 4 to 5 inchs of hair that isnt curled , but has big volume from being pulled back. i let the curls fall, by brushing , usually after 20 minutes, the curls /style is perfect.

for the kate H look, just use a 1 inch curling iron and wrap 1 inch pieces of hair starting below the ear around the barrel of the curling iron and hold for about 20 secs.

this works for me...i hope this was a little help

This only 'might work'! But if you've naturally wavy long hair, that isn't very thick, all you need to do is put it in a ponytail and twirl it around in your finger. The whole ponytail should then just look like one big ringlet and when it dries you just separate it and have lots of curls. Like those above. At least that's what I do all the time, but my hair is fine and wavy so I may just be an exception.

Good luck anyway!
