It is honestly all about confidence in yourself and don't worry if you feel like you don't fit in now. One day school will be over and you won't even remember all those popular kids. About the hair, I'd suggest you try following the curly girl method to start and go from there. Get as much info as you can and start using products that work for you. I don't know if youre into fashion or anything but one of my favorite parts of growing up was finding my own style. Admittedly, at first I wanted to look like the "pretty" girls but now that I'm older I've figured out that I'm pretty too and I don't have to look like anyone else I just have to look like me. I hope this helped. Good luck!
