got my hair did.

Initial curls
Brushed out. 
Mmmm. Pinterest. A collision of all the best ideas. 
I've done a few of the pinterest inspirations around my house. Refrigerator cleaning, picture hanging, and now, hair! 
My hair is in this in between stage where it was super layered (I used to have a mullet of sorts, which I loved but then I moved away from my hair stylist and friend and no one out here could recreate well, lame) and now I am trying to grow it out. And, of course, the one time I want my hair to grow, it takes for-ev-er. 
Curling my hair has been the bane of my existence but I am always down to try a new technique. I tried the no-heat-sock-bun-on-top-of-your-head one but my hair is waaay to layered and short for that. Luckily, I found this other technique on pinterest, also no heat, that would work with layers. I think I even did a little fist pump upon stumbling across it. Here is the idea/pin: no-heat-curl
So, I tried it last night. The process took all of about 7 minutes. Slept in it, no complaints there. And, voila! It was super curly when I took it out but I brushed it out a little and it looks great! Also, I'll have to try harder next time to make sure the back under pieces done because I had to re-curl some of them. But, really? Easiest hairstyle ever
Now to See how long it lasts.

    I'm gonna try this tonight! My hair is also at an odd length with the layers and I'm tired of  using a curling iron on it.

  2. Yay! Let me know how it works out!! Mine pretty much stayed in all day. it fell out a little bit but still had curl by the end of the day :)

    It worked!! The curls have loosed a little, but not horribly. My only complaint is that I had a mark on my forehead for almost an hour from sleeping with the headband on. :)

  4. Oooh ya I had that a little bit. after I took it off I scrubbed my face with a make-up remover cloth and then put make-up on, that seemed to take care of most of it for me. But I also have an older looser headband that I am using. Maybe stretch yours out a bit and the mark won't last as long?

  5. I stretched my headband out before trying it again and the mark wasn't too bad this morning. I'm having tons of fun with this simple technique!
