Curl Formers Verdict
 
Oh man, guys! I wish I took a picture of my hair this morning before work.

My curl formers arrived yesterday, so I used them last night to see what my third-day hair would look like. DUDE I AM SHIRLEY TEMPLE :laughing9:

It looks really cool and retro and very 50s. Everyone is loving it, BUT it genuinely makes me look 12. I already get told I look quite young for my age and now I'm getting it x 1000.

My hair also looks SUPER short. It's about jaw / chin-length (when normally it's shoulder-length). I've had five people ask me if I had a haircut! :roll:

I don't think it'll be something I do regularly, but I do think it'll be a cool look for summer, maybe paired with a vintage sun dress and some old-school sunglasses :)

Side note: I put the curl formers in last night, slept in them and took them out this morning. I've never had such a bad night's sleep in my entire life. These are the WORST to sleep in. In fact, I'd say they're near impossible to sleep in. They're hard, uncomfortable and sharp and they pull on your hair and it's just AWFUL. I have a major headache this morning.

Also, I do feel like they tug on your roots / hair quite a bit in general. Which I didn't like.

You should definitely post pics next time! I'd love to see what your curls looked like! I did the flexirods a few weeks ago, I'm guessing they give a similar look. I loved the way my curls turned out I just need get some more practice. If I do them this weekend I'll try sleeping in them, the first time I did them it was during the day and I was stuck inside all day :sad5:.

you should appreciate it! I've always had the same problem, it wasn't so cool when I was younger but the older I get the more I love it...it doesn't help that I'm short either lol.

I kind of tried putting them up and it was still super awkward and painful :( lol. Maybe next time I'll put up four separate sections, rather than just two, might work better! Thanks :)

Haha, I'll have to try and take a picture when I'm home. it might be a frizzy mess though, since I didn't put any styler in it (because I'm a FOOL, I tell you. A FOOL).

I'll definitely post pictures next time, if for nothing else than for you guys to point and laugh about me looking like I'm in primary school ;)

This gives me a great idea for a new thread... post your picture and have people guess how old you are! That would be fun.

Starmie 04-01-2014 09:31 AM

^ Ooh, no, I think that would be too scary!

For us more mature curlies anyway.

BotticelliBrit 04-01-2014 09:44 AM

LOL. I can see that going so wrong

sixelamy 04-01-2014 09:45 AM

Hahaha, that's why it'd be fun :p

BotticelliBrit 04-02-2014 05:21 AM

LOL, I'm sorry! Pinky promise I will next time – it just completely slipped my mind (I must be getting old ;))
