Default Does anyone else have a favorite curl?

Or am I just weird?

There's one particular curl right by the side of my face that I think is so pretty and lovely and I wish the rest of my hair looked like that at all times ... Anybody else?

HAHA yes!!!!!one particular curl in front of my ear is this perfect ringlet every time! It frustrates me that only a few curls are really that perfect though!

All the time! There's a really thick one underneath near my ear that always dries perfectly wavy.
The curls near my face are the best because all of the hair there is fine. They're always so soft.

I actually have two favorites, on behind my ear on the right and one in front of my ear on the left

I haven't given them names yet, though

I have one in the front-top of the head, wow what a perfect curl. No frizz and perfect curl no matter what. I wish I could get that kind of curl all over my head with that little effort i do for the front curl!!

Lol! This is too funny! I too have a favorite curl; the right side above my ear - always forms a beatiful 3a/3b ringlet no matter what. If only the rest of my hair would follow suit

Mine is buried in the middle of my head so no one ever sees it first runner up is behind my right ear, I wish all of my hair fell like that: no frizz, always the perfect 3B ringlet

Mine are the perfect ringlets buried in my underlayers nobody ever sees

My runner up is the one next to my left ear. Must be something about ears - all of ours seem to be by our ears.

Sounds like a lot of us have them around our ears! Hmm ... interesting.

My favorite perfect ringlet - right in front of my left ear. I actually get my hair cut in such a manner that it shows off that particular ringlet.


Though my favorite ringlet does not appear in the same area as my favorite group of curls on my head (top of my head). I always found that odd.

Very interesting about these curls around the ears! I don't have 1 favorite curl, but I have a favorite part of my curls-- the ends, many of them are perfect, thick corkscrews. I don't know why they can't be that way all the way from my roots, I love how 3-D they are!

My friends think I'm crazy but I have one perfect spiral on the left side of my face as part of my bangs and I'll randomly pull it to make it spring back up its my favorite curl

i, too, love the way some of my ends spiral. makes me wonder if i'm paying too much attention to the ends when applying product and my roots are all "hey! what about me!"...

my right side top seems to curl better than the rest of my hair. i love them. may also be product application issues. if i had the money, i'd be at the salon every week so they could style for me.

I have an 'area' of springy curls which I like each side of my face. I'm forever pulling them in front of my face to inspect them. To others, I must look like I'm going cross eyed, lol!

My hair is pretty inconsistent but there are a few waves I have that I like. A few close to my ears and others at the bottom layer.

I knew I could count on y'all to make me feel less weird, haha. In "real life" if I went around going, "Look at this curl! Isn't it so pretty?" everyone would think I was craaaazy.
