I’m not getting married anytime soon but I am curling iron challenged lol. I got a wand type iron where I basically wrap my hair around it and it works really well! I always end up with weird crease type things when I use a regular curling iron :/ But keep practicing either way, practice makes perfect!

I’m a failure at beauty routines left to my own devices, so I have no advice to offer, other than youtube! It has lots of tutorials that have gotten me out of a bind when it comes to hair & makeup

I”m not sure what you think is wrong? In these pics it looks super cute!!! If you are wanting more volume at the crown, make sure you pick the hair up straight above your head and roll from the top.

I am going to have curls in my hair for the wedding day. 

Your curls look beautiful though, I love them! 

Don’t take this the wrong way but they remind me of a grown up Shirley Temple look.

I am worried though, I have very fine, thin hair and wonder if it will hold curls without extra hold hair spray. I am worried if I use that though my hair will look and feel all crunchy. Ew.

the trick with the curling iron is to change the direction of the curl every time. So you curl towards your face, then back from your face and so on..that makes it look as natural as possible. Then, I recommend using a light shine cream (pea sized amount) like Alterna’s Silk-Sleek Brilliance Cream and distributing that through your curls (just enough to break them up) and a little spray. It should last for hours!

Have you tried wrapping your hair around the outside if the curling iron? And don’t touch it until it is completley cool

Try a pincurl set! There are lots of YouTube tutorials.

I heard that those–oh, dang, what’s the name of them? those sponge rod things work good. the ones that are long and colorful like long pieces of chalk, but you roll your hair around them and bend them–I heard those work really good. You might investigate setting lotion and sit under the dryer also with rollers.

I’m going to be curling my own hair for the wedding because I HATE my hair every time I have it professionally done.

I recommend looking on youtube for tutorials. There are SO MANY of them, you are sure to find something you like.
