How to get Curls like Rose's

Rose's curls are one of her most defining features, and over the years I've become obsessed with achieving Rose-like curls for my hair, so I've tried almost every method of hair curling there is.

Sponge Rollers

Equipment:

Sponge Rollers, available at most any drug store.

Method:

Wrap your hair around the roller from the tip down and close the roller. Sleep on them overnight.

Results:

Shirley Temple-esque curls- columns of bouncy coils.

Pros:

Certainly very curly...

Cons:

Exceedingly painful to sleep on for rather un-Rose like results.

Rating:

4/10

Steam Rollers

Equipment:

Steam rollers, available at drug stores.

Method:

After steaming the rollers, wrap your hair around them from the tips down.

Results:

Mostly just light curls at the tips of your hair because the steam doesn't effect all the hair wrapped around the roller. This method works better for achieving volume with shorter hair.

Pros:

Easy, fast.

Cons:

Doesn't achieve Rose-like curls, really.

Pin Curls

Equipment:

Roller Pins- basically like big bobby pins or hair grips, but without the kinks.

Method:

Seperate hair into small sections (1/2"). Twist each section into strands, and then wrap the strand around your finger. Pin the coil to your head. Once you've finished, sleep on them overnight. For larger curls, use larger sections and wrap around 2 fingers.

Results:

Fantastic! Great curls, very Rose-like in addition to staying in for a long time.

Pros:

Easy once you get the hang of it, comfortable to sleep on.

Cons:

Many roller pins.

Velcro Rollers

Equipment:

Velcro rollers. Tubes covered in velcro, basically.

Method:

Wrap your hair around the rollers from the tips down and sleep on it overnight.

Results:

Slight curl at the end of your hair.

Pros:

Eh... none.

Cons:

Painful to sleep on. The velcro pulls all your hair out.

Curling Iron

Equipment:

A curling iron. A 1/2" one is probably a good bet.

Method:

Heat the iron. Starting at the root, wrap your hair along the length of the iron. Let cool.

Results:

Nice, defined curls.

Pros:

Always looks good.

Cons:

Not the best for your hair on a day-to-day basic, time consuming.

Rating:

8/10

Rag Rollers

Equipment:

10" strips of cotton rags.

Method:

Starting at the tips, wrap your hair around the centre of the rag. Tie off the rag once you have rolled it up to your scalp. Sleep on it overnight.

Results:

Super-intense Shirley Temple style curls.

Pros:

Very, very curly, easy to sleep on.

Cons:

Not terribly Rose-like, the curls are in columns.
