Curling the Short hair

I get a few emails about how I curl my hair. I made a video about how I do it every morning when I curl or ‘bend’ my hair when I actually take the time to do it. It highlights that I do many weird things and make many weird noises. I find that it comes out the best when I do it like I show in the video because the way I used to curl it when it was long makes me look like Shirley Temple!

When I first blow dry my hair… it looks like this

I also talk about a product and I’ve been told I call it by the wrong name, who knew… but here is a link to the product, Aquage and I also reference another blog that I love going to for hair stuff and she made a video on how to put the Aquage in your hair, which is super helpful. You can find her super cute blog here, and here’s the video on how to apply Aquage. I usually put nothing in my hair, so when I use this I really see a difference and it works great to keep it so well!

Overall, it’s pretty easy, but I do have a ton of hair, so that makes it much larger than normal hair. I do find that the bend always works better on the left side too, the right side plagues me with weird stuff going on. Alas, hopefully you enjoyed the video. Sorry it’s SO long. :/

    My hair is a similar length to yours and has a bit of a natural wave to it that I usually straighten out. I’m going to try doing this tomorrow!!! Thanks

    Remember teaching me to curl with the flat iron? I am forever indebted to you. Now I can make a few tweaks with these tips! I think if the iron was pointed down instead of up on the second side of your hair, it would come out better. that works for me anyway! P.S. love the music and George’s appearance haha

    I loved this video number one because you say “Do Do DOO!!” haha I say that all the time, made me smile. And two because of your music! Country all the way :) This hair style is super cute. I used to like the stick straight look when I was younger, but the messy, wavey look is now my go to fav

    I love Aquage- i just found the blog you mentioned and using this stuff. I’m debating cutting my hair short and will have to remember this for when I want something different than straight hair.

    I use big foam rollers – I use the curling iron and then go straight to the rollers and leave them in for however much time i have! I’ve never been able to perfect curling with the straightener… and my left side always does REAL good, and my right has decided to start thinning and doesn’t do so hot…
