i'm going to an art opening in a few days and i want my hair to look special.  i was thinking about doing curls.

my hair is long(ish) and the last time i used the curling iron they didn't come out so well.  i tried using some velcro curlers the other day and well... bad, bad idea.  i ripped a bunch of hair out and they didn't stay in well, so i had to use pins to keep them in.

anyway!  does anybody know how i could get curls?  or maybe what i'm asking for is.. what tool should i use?  my mom said something about rag curlers, but she has short hair and wasn't sure. 

here's a photo to show length.


thanks in advance.

My hair used to be as long as yours - when I wanted curly hair for my prom, hot rollers and lots of gel and hairspray seemed to work.

i say hot rollers also.  i have long hair and thats the only way i can get any curl.  leave in until they are almost cool.  spray with hairspray when in and then right after you remove.  leave hair alone until completely cool.  then just finger through.

i find that curling irons never work without using some kind of spray. if you shop around for a spray that is specifically for use with curling irons it should help if u use enough. you spray plenty of it onto the piece of hair before you curl it and i like to put hairstray over it afterwards. it really helps and ive even used it to curl asian hair and it worked.

Rag curls work really well. Bun curls too.

my hair is really fine, and when i want it curly, i wash it, blowdry it to where its damp, put gel in, and put it in hot rollers.  then, after its dry, i go over what i want different with a curling iron and hairspray the ever-loving crap out of it.

ok so we have almost the same length hair. my hair doesnt hold curls at all. ive used a curling iron before n it doesnt help. my mom has a chi straightener and if you get it just right you can actually curl your hair with it. sorta start at the top and rotated the chi while moving down the hair. its a nice ringlet. then when im done with each section i spray alot of hairspray on. i use spray n play or perhaps its called big n sexy...im not sure but its a big red bottle from a store called trade secret. they may sell it elsewhere. but that stuff is great n doesnt leave your hair like super crusty but really holds the curl. i go to sleep with my hair curly and wake up and its turned to a more 'sexy' curly look ya know...yeah. lasts a good while. this is the only way ive managed to get curly hair that stays all day.

I think you're talking about "big sexy hair"!

Does it look like this?

If it's the same stuff, you can also get it at Walgreen's.

Bangs question.

What are the best type of bangs to have for someone who has thin hair? I kind of want bangs that go straight across my forehead (what are those kind even called?) by I'm not sure if they'd look good on me. And I'd like to also be able to push them to the side, side swept. I've tried to have my hair to where it was "piece-y" if you get what I'm talking about, haha.. but the hairstylist who did it wasn't all that good at it, and it didn't at all look the way I wanted it to, it just looked like a normal cut. I've been growing my bangs out for about two, three months, but I don't like it when all of my hair is one length, so you know. Any suggestions for me? I don't want boring hair anymore!  Roll Eyes

thanks everyone.  you're all awesome!

i went out and bought some hot rollers.  i got the set with twenty.  the sizes vary, but i'm hoping they'll work out okay.  i'm going to try them tomorrow for my cousin's birthday and see how it goes and holds.  (the humidity will probably kill them, so maybe i'll need a travel sized hir spray.  haha.)

and about the bangs question.  i went in once with a picture of the bangs you're describing and the girl cutting my hair looked at the picture and said they might make me look really young.  (um, okay?)  but anyway!  she gave me regular bangs, like straight across, but razored them and i really liked them.  i think razoring might be the key to having something piece-y.  that and some sort of styling product.  that's just my two cents.
