Default How to get this look (SJP)

I'm loving this look from when Carrie first meets Aiden and I can't figure out if it's her natural curls or an iron.

(Picture #3 if the link doesn't work)

Any ideas? Can't figure out the top is smoother with the big curls b/c her natural hair is tighter curls.

This looks like her hair was straightened, then the hair from about the ears down was either damp set in pincurls or twisted and put around a curling iron.
You might get something like this by smoothing your top hair and making making a few large pincurls with the lower part of your hair.

pin curls are easy peasy...as long as you have shorter hair. Long hair and it takes forever.

Just a quick tip though..reallllllly make sure you never twist the hair when rolling it up or wrapping around your finger (watch a few youtube vids esp lisafreemontstreet or strawberrykoivintage or fleurdiliss and you will undertand what I mean), you can also use a cold curling iron/make up brush or hair brush handle to wrap the hair round then slide of to make a perfect curl. Much faster and gaureenteed uniform curls.

oooh and brushing out is the key to removing the volume at the top.

Ugh, I hate how all the pretty curly looks I see on celebs aren't really natural at all!

Do you think this look would be possible with out pin-curling?

How do you think her hair itself is cut/layered?

Thanks!
