It all depends on what kind of look you want - up and more classically formal? Looser and more romantic? I don't use curlers, so I can't speak to that. I sometimes will use spin pins to put my hair in a messy bun, then small jeweled combs to secure stray curls. I saw a post on here once where someone used pieces of hair from underneath to pull back sections and then secured with cute clips (wish I could find that picture). I also like the idea of sweeping to the side. Maybe try googling curly updos and see what comes up.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
