I unfortunately (or fortunately, to some) have naturally wavy, huge '80s hair, so most time is spent trying to tame it. But I do that exact same technique when I want more defined curls!

this is awesome advice! do you have any tips on preventing your hair from flattening throughout the day? once i volumize my hair (w/ hairspray), by like 2pm it just goes back to normal and my hair's just chunky and gross. :(

my trick: I twist my hair on a ridicilously high bun (almost on your forehead -bun) and go to sleep. In the morning i let my hair down and its perfectly voluminious and it doesn't take any time at all.

I tried this out when I went clubbing, I liked the results but I need more practice. Thanks for the tips!

Once my hair gets longer I will do this. For now, I think my hair is so big as it is since it is so short. Great tips though!

Yay thanks for this! I was actually just saying to my friends the other day that I wish I could have messy hair but I didn't know how to do it, so I'm so going to try this!

i love this. but my hair is wayy long. i'm quite afraid that the effect will go off fast. do i hafta apply more wax then?
WorldUgly on July 19
you're hair is long! mine used to be quite a bit longer and it still worked. you need more hair product though, and some hairspray.

another diy-er i'm going to try! i stupidly got a bob 8 weeks ago though and am impatiently waiting for it to grow out. only 2 cms left...
WorldUgly on July 19
ah that's why i never have a haircut. it always ends up too short. you have to give it a go when it's finished growing out!

i love big hair! unfortunately, my hair is flat and stringing. i totally try this if i had a hair straightener or curler.
WorldUgly on July 19
i suppose the downfall is that those with very straight and fine hair probably don't own a straightener. you could borrow?
