So I'm going to crochet Julia Child for my mother for Christmas, but I can't figure out how to get her curly hair right. If I do the fringe hair thing it'll come out too straight, and I'm not sure where to go from here.

I was thinking about checking out joann's to see if they had any fun fur fabric that would do, or I've also heard about doll wigs, what are those like?

Any suggestions?

(here are some pictures for reference)

Actually there are some sites online that have tutorials for amigurumi hair
such as these two--I come across them a lot...
