Curls Becoming Common?

Like Tree9Likes

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.

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!

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

"Curls aren't just for girls"
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.

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.
