Default Straight vs. Curly . . . Post Your Pics!

I've seen photos of all your gorgeous curls, and on some occasions I've seen photos of you with straight hair, and the difference is startling. So, post your straight hair pics here and a curly one.






My hair is never bone-straight, I suppose.

I like the curlies better, but it is neat to see the length differences between straight and curly.

I'm having a blowout this weekend, so I'll post then.

I don't think I have any of my hair straight. Nope - I checked...I do not. I have had some taken by others but none in my computer. I think I look too much like my mom when it's straight. I have been told I look younger when it's straight. That will be my next mission - get a picture done when it's straight.

Mims, you look great in both, but really different, and I love your curls.

You girls look great either way but of course I'm biased to curls. Loving your dress sairis!

These were taken one week apart. Straight was the day I got it coloured last.



Curly was one of my best curly days that started out as one of my worst.

Thanks for the compliments.
And whatshercurl, even though the long straight hair looks nicer than the short cut you once had, I still think you look better with the curls. Sort of gentler.

I have a longish thin face. I think curls make me looks less angular. I really hated my hair straightened when I had it done that time and washed it out the next morning. I've always enjoyed the difference in the past. But I think that may have been my last straightening.

ITA, and i think it's awesome how much HAPPIER everyone looks with their curly hair.

In straight, we all look a little reserved and withdrawn... with our curls, we're all a little more free to be 'us'

I TOTALLY agree. You look way more "fun" in the second picture.

I prefer curly pics, but I considered that sometimes when I looked at straight picture and think that this girl look better in it - I don't look at pattern of hair, but for length. So length is the deal. Maybe becausse I'm obsessed with growing. Your curls are awesome!

The straight pic was back from when I was getting super blonde highlights too. Glad to be back to my natural.

Your hair looks nice straight, Sydney. But it's HOT curly.
