hi geeks!

Can anyone tell me how to achieve this wavey kinda look?





I have the Remington Charles Worthington rag rollers, Nicky Clarke Ceramic Straighteners & Tongs, Various sizes of Velcro rollers & Babyliss Thermo Ceramic Heated Curlers....all of which create great styles but not the one i'm trying to achieve!

I've been curling my hair for over 10 years so i'm pretty frustrated that I can't get the look I want!

Should i be using bendy foam rollers??

xx :hug: xx

I just asked my daughter Amy as she does hers just like this sometimes. She said she curls them with her slim GHD's then straightens them lightly with the GHD's and it ends up like the pic. xxx

Another way I think you could achieve that look it to put mousse in and let it dry naturally, just giving it the occasional scrunch. Make sure you don't comb it though. xx

plat it wet and take out the next morning!? shes more tousled than any thing. If your hair has a curl pop some serum on to stop frizzyness then twist round sections of hair whilst wet - leave to dry naturally, then loosen the twists gently with fingers and LEAVE it looks just like above.
I'm not a hairdresser but I do have curly hair which I have to manage!! lol hth

okay one thing straight nail geeks..for those who have naturally curly hair..naturally straight hair does not perform the same way as curly hair so there is no possible way you can sit there and tell someone with long straight hair how you do your hair..:D

Unless you know the stucture of straight compared to curly and how well her hair holds a curl..you can't actually say what it going to work for her.

It is great that everyone wants to post here in hairgeeks forum and help other geeks but please make sure you actually know what you are talking about before giving out advice.

LOL you are the one that is the closest to getting the look she is wanting to achieve.

The waver or three barrel curling iron ( as we call it) is the easiest and quickest way of doing it.
Another way is to spiral pieces of hair on a regular curling iron and before it cools down too much, run your fingers thru the curls with a bit of pomade on your fingers. Pull on the curl just enough to lossen it up a bit until you get the look you want.
If your hair does not like to hold curl, hairspray it lightly afterwards.

Just to put the cat amongst the pigeons, how would you achieve this look on curly hair that's prone to frizz?

If I use mousse and scrunch mine I end up looking like this:

And no. I don't mean the dog!:green:

Hi Sal, I have curly hair also, ringlets.
It depends on how easy your hair can be straightened out.
With mine, I use a regualr curling iron and it goes straight and smooth.

If you are prone to frizz and too much fullness, using a flat iron first lightly will help with the volume , then you could go in with the 3 barrell or spiral it in sections on a regualr curling iron.

the secret to curly hair and too much volume is to use a light gel instead of a mousse.
Mousse give volume.
Gel is a bit more heavy and will provide a hold and de volume it.
Use a pomade that isn't too slick afterwards, from roots to ends.

Here is a tip and trick:

When straightening curly hair or any type of hair for that matter, If you are looking to get it flat looking, take your iron from root to ends and straighten

If you are just looking to smooth the ends out a bit but leave volume in there, run the iron from Mid shaft to ends. :wink2:
