Try curling it with a curling wand, curling tongs or around a straightening iron, and then run your fingers through to make the curls drop. And then spray it to hold the desired amount of dropped curl.

If you are going to do it yourself, you and your bridesmaid should practice a lot of times.

@renwoman:  My hair is a lot like yours, long and pin straight. The look you’re going for is soooo easy to achieve on your own! All you need is a curling iron, really. An extra set of hands is always helpful too so the hair in the back doesn’t end up looking like a mess 🙂 

As for products, I absolutely hate hairspray – +1 to what you said about a tangled mess. But mousse really works for me actually – no tangles, no pain, no mess, just hair that actually holds a curl. I use Nivea Flexible Curls, maybe you could try something similar.

Wash your hair normally, condition, dry halfway with a hair dryer ot naturally, then squeeze some mousse (the amount similar to a large tangerine or small apple) into your hand and distribute evenly. Take a curling iron, make sure it’s heated properly, and create locks. Make sure you practice first! Oh, and the look will be more natural if you take some larger strands of hair and some smaller ones and also make some locks firmer (by leaving the curling iron in longer) and some looser. 

Of course you can also do this on perfectly dry hair too (just add mousse) but my hair is easier to style and holds a curl better if I start styling it when half wet.

I hope that helps a little!

You could try making too loose buns at night and should dry into waves by the morning.
