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

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!

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 .

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.
