My hair is so naturally straight that trying to curl it is a bit of a nightmare. On NYE, I tried to curl in and at first I thought it was far too tightly curled but as it dropped and went more wavy, I love it so I thought I would do a quick post about what it looked like and how I did it.
To curl it all I used was the TRESemme Curling Wand (mines are all black but I think these are the same ones), TRESemme Hairspray, a comb and a couple of bobbles.
To start I just brushed through the hair and sectioned it, putting two thirds up in a bobble on the top. Then from the hair I'd left down, I started from the back and took about two inches of hair each time. I wrapped the hair round the want going back the way and held it for about 25 seconds each time but if your hair is shorter you probably don't need to hold it this long. After the 2 inch section has been curled I just sprayed it with the hairspray. Then just repeat this for my whole head, taking a third down at a time and once it's done I hairspray the whole lot!

This is the point it looks a bit Shirley Temple but if you run your fingers through it or a wide tooth comb if you have one then they should relax a bit and look a bit more natural. Well, not natural but a bit more loose.

On New Years Eve, I ran the brush through my hair a lot more so it was more waves than curls but I actually quite like it in the picture above.

The downside to this is that it took me about 45 minutes which is quite a long time to spend on hair but with practice it should take a bit less and if you have sort of medium length to short length hair then it won't take as long.
This is also a bit easier to do and less likely to fall out completely if you do it the day after you've washed your hair so it's not completely fresh, if you're worried about it not looking clean then maybe do it and then pop a bit of dry shampoo through it.
Out of interest, how long does it take you to curl your hair?
