If you have naturally curly hair, giving this hairstyle a try is a great idea. For ethnic hair, such as African-American hair, using a mild relaxer may give the hair the desired texture to achieve this look. Be aware that hair relaxers are very damaging. For very fine, thin hair, this hairstyle is not recommended. Curlers are a classic, but curling irons and flat irons also do the job.
Curlers are best applied when the hair is wet. Curlers that heat up, called hot rollers, are good for stubborn hair types that normally refuse to take a curl. Then the hair can be curled as desired. The tightness and size of the curl will depend on the barrel size of the curling iron. A flat-iron is one of the newest ways to curl hair. A smaller plate, usually a half-inch or less, will be necessary for curling short hair. The hair will pop up into a lovely curl. No matter your age, short curly hair is something to consider trying.
