being slightly bored with (my) straight hair,
and all the straight looks around
only too glad to find this little article in fuk..
seems like we had enough of flatness, frizz & curls are back
and i'm just jumping on the new hair trend for ss04
The frizz fringe
Some of us have become so reliant on hair straighteners, that we can barely leave the house without them. While straighteners have come a long way and banished the need for anyone to iron their hair anymore, it could be time for you to go cold turkey and kick the habit. This season's happening hair is all about fashionable frizz. From 70s Ossie Clarke looks, to shaggy style perms, British hairdressers are making curls. For sound advice on how to get some DIY curls, drop by Charles Worthington's website for detailed instructions on how to achieve casually curvy hair as well as big, bouncy curls. Charles likes using thongs, but old fashioned, regular rollers are also making a bit of a comeback. If you've got Carmen Heated Rollers then you're on course for soft and shaggy curl heaven - if you want some, Amazon has some secondhand ones for just £15.
going to try those simple wave tricks soon and i'll let you know how it works
(my hair is at least 15cm pass shoulderlength so it must work quite well)
i can always surf the web or work on my laptop while waiting for my hair to 'get curly'
i also am hopping on the bandwagon and going for a more "natural wavy" look (with a lot of work ). i just got my haircut and i kept it straight because i still like to iron my hair when i'm in a punky mood, but i think i'll introduce some layers into my next cut. of course, by the time i do that, curls will be out again
My hair takes a curl well. If it weren't for my habit of riding my bicycle to work, I would do my hair in curls more often, but curls and a bike helmet are not compatible, especially for those of us who have to sleep on curlers the night before.
One thing that works great for me to get lots and lots of tiny, tight, boingy curls is to cut strips of newspaper, roll them up into tubes about the thickness of a pencil, and roll my hair up on those newspaper tubes and tie the ends closed. It is more comfortable than traditional rollers and it makes some gorgeous curls. I find that using a light-hold gel is the best curl setter. It looks very natural and will last for several days if you don't wash your hair and if you don't do things like sock a hat on or wear a bike helmet. Also, don't comb or brush the curls, just arrange them with your fingers. Otherwise, you will have hair as wide as your shoulders, and frizzzzzzz, not nice, defined curls. But that's pretty much common sense.
Sometimes I will brush out my curls after a couple of days, and get really big hair like Kelis! It feels so awesome and floaty.
