Cool Curls
For those born with carefree, natural curls, a medium-length or short haircut will do wonders. This style gives you the girl/guy-next-door look. Plus, you can let it loose, or tie it up in a pony, and streak or bleach it with cool hair colors to give it a tinted look.
For those who want to fake natural curls try these easy steps:
  1. Separate your totally dry hair into square sections, make sure it's 1.5 inches in width because tighter the section better the curls.
  2. Take hair from one section and twist it around your finger until the hair coils around itself, then wrap it into a mini bun using a bobby pin, and pin down the section onto your head.
  3. Continue doing this step till your head is covered with tiny buns and secured with bobby pins. Then go ahead and have a good night's sleep.
  4. Next morning, carefully remove all the bobby pins, working the curls out with your hand, but don't brush them lest they get frizzy. Voila! you can wear curls all day long!
