Default Curls Becoming Common?

So lately while walking around my school, I've started to notice girls wearing their hair down with curls. Now, granted, most of them are ether wand or crimped or whatever curls, but still. I've also been getting a lot more attention because I'm one of about five girls in my grade that has naturally curly hair. Not to mention, like one of three that wears it curly, and the only one that hasn't brushed it out.
Anyways, has anyone had anything like this at their schools or work or whatever? Im kind of happy it's becoming more acceptable.

I could go either way with that. I see people in both circles where it leads to me to believe either one could be equally true. What cracks me up though is that it actually takes longer to straighten your hair than it does to just let the curls do their thing. When I first started wearing mine longer, I would blow dry and style it with a round brush. Sometimes I curled it with a curling iron. However that took too long. Now I just let the curls do their thing.

I see a lot of the younger people these days curling their hair. What makes me laugh is the people that already have pretty wavy hair, and they are curling it with a curling iron! I don't understand. I think naturally wavy hair is so pretty! My nieces in particular do this. I just want to rip it out of their hands and tell them what's on their head!

Although curling irons could also be a different form of straightening. I actually did that a few times but found it took way too long. I'm pretty much wash and go now. Tastes less time and looks much better.

I've notice the same thing especially with teens and young adults. A lot of my friends are big chopping and wearing their hair curly, I get asked by customers daily how I "rod" my hair to get it to "curl like that", and then I explain to them that it does it on it's own and that I don't use rods. I'm also glad it's becoming more acceptable.

I did that before I realized that flat irons exist. In high school I straightened with a curling iron alllll the time! I really wish I had known what I had under there.

When I started wearing my hair curly, I kept getting asked if I got a perm or if it was natural. I took those questions as a compliment

As a guy, I even get that question every now and then even though guys getting perms is so 1983. At first it bothered me but now I'm like "well, I guess I have have others would pay to get." I'm glad I have embraced being a curly after resisting for so many years.

I've been asked a lot more how to get my hair the way it is and like someone previously stated, I just tell them I wash it and it's the way it is naturally. It does seem that more and more people want to do the natural/curly thing. I don't know . . . it's like more of a trend officially now for a lot of people.

Nope not here. I'm shocked when I see naturally curly people where I live! Most women straighten and/or highlight the crap out of their hair and me and my curls stick out like a sore thumb. Lol but I love it!

I feel like I saw a lot more over the summer in the pac-northwest area... but I don't know if that's just me paying special attention to curlies now.

I'm seeing lots of people with beautiful beachy wavy curls. When I ask them how they style it, the majority of replies is that they straighten their hair first with a blow dryer, flat iron out some of the frizz, and then use a curling wand to curl their hair away from their face.

And I thought doing the naturally curly routine (waiting forever for my hair to dry) took a long time!

It depends on what group you're talking about, and even the kind of curls. I think it's great black women are going natural, as I don't think any ethnicity should have people change their physical appearance to be more "insert other group here."

However with curls in general, I think the messy beachy waves look is more popular compared to real curls. A lot of women with naturally curly hair aren't given the same accolades as women who style their straighter hair to look a certain way because it's the look that's more popular. It also depends on the age. Younger women are going to straighten their hair more whereas older women are more appreciative, IME. I know a woman who is almost 40 with gorgeous long brown hair that's healthy and she gets tons of attention. Younger women with that kind of hair eventually cut it to have more fashionable and chic hairstyles like bobs and pixie cuts. I still haven't been entirely convinced that long hair, curly hair, or long curly hair are making a comeback. At least, not naturally textured hair.

I think the messy beach waves are more popular is because straight hair people can never make their hair look like ours...like they would try to braid their hair and instead it just looks wavy

Agree. Long wavy hair is what' "in" right now. Before that it was stick straight hair styled with flat iron.

My teenage sister has ruined her curls from heat damage. I tell her to use heat protector etc and just doesn't listen at all..sigh. When I was in high school not many had curly hair. I always rocked mine. I've seen females my age rock the natural curls but only a few I've seen. I can tell if someone has used a wand or curling rod. If only every curly person rocked what they were born with.

Follow the money. There are a lot of new heat styling products which have been released recently to make curls.

I live in the Netherlands and there are so many nationalities here and a huge amount of curly haired girls. Sure, there are a lot of girls who straighten their hair but they are mostly teenagers
