Oooh Im curious to know as well! I love big soft curls, but I have VERY thick, long hair so I need something strong to keep them in.

Thanks in advance :wink: :D

you can also get big curls with a straightening iron, although they're not the really really tight curls. let them heat up, put the end of a section of hair in and then wrap the hair around, on an angle. hold for a few seconds, then pull down slowly and let them unravel. takes a bit of practice but they look gorgeous :D

I used to dance and we had to have our hair in tight curls for some performances. The best I've used so far is the VS hot sticks - they are brilliant. Next comes the foam rollers (the coloured ones you can buy from the chemist) then a curling iron but this takes way to long.

My mum bought the VS hot sticks from Big W years back but I bet you can still get them - they are the best. I still have mine and use them from time to time lol

For tight curls that will last ages use hot rollers. You wind the hair round them and pin them, and leave them in for 20-30 minutes while you get dressed or do your makeup. You might need someone to do the back though.

Curling wands are OK... they dont hold as well though, and they look kinda fake.

My straightner also curls, not very well but creates soft waves.

A big barreled curling iron is good for creating bigger curls...

You can also get one that creates waves, I think its called Bed Hair Curler or something like that lol. That looks alright.

So yeah, I would go with the hot rollers... but a curling wand is cheaper and works ok, just not really tight curls.

Ella they work so much better when you have someone else helping you out with them.

Rach I can't remember how much the cost - it was years back lol :shock:
