Rach I am biased because I love long sleek hair
You could always do a test and get your hair curled with hot curlers and see how it looks. Whether you are able to carry curly hair.
You also need to be on the lookout if it will make your face look fuller.
But then, I was watching America's next top model and one of the models had lovely tight curly hair and she looked hot.
Best to do a test run and see if you could live with curly hair.
