Hair curling

December 4, 2007

I bought this stick thingy which I don’t know what to call and there isn’t any indication as to what it is in the package either. So hereafter it is known as the “curler thingy”.

(Just to add: I am aware that this “tool” is used to make stylish “buns” or other hairdesigns as indicated on the packet so you look all tidy and whatnot but none of them appeal to me mainly cause I don’t think they suit my “style” as they seem to make you look older more mature. Hence why I PERSONALLY call it a hair “curler thingy”. So ummm, please don’t think that I’m some kinda idiotic bimbo that buys stuff without knowing what they are. Heh)

Okay, so I bought this curler thingy from Cindy for like RM4.90 each. At first I bought one, tried it out and it was alright considering I didn’t put any hair gel or anything like that to hold the curls. So I bought another one over the weekend and gave it a try with hair gel.

This curler thingy is made of flexible wire wrapped in some sort velvet fabric.

Before putting on the curler thingy I applied some hair gel. Then I tied my hair into pigtails really high. Then following the lack of instructions on the packet, I…well….curled my hair. I did it before going to bed so that meant I slept on it overnight. It wasn’t uncomfortable or anything if you tie your hair high enough.

Anyway in the center of the curler thingy is a specified length (it’s stitched) that you need to cut so you can put your hair over the cut hole. After you do that, you just kinda twist the curler thingy along with your hair up (or down) depending on your preference. I personally twist it up cause it’s just easier to do. It’s very simple really.

I must say I am extremely happy with the results. Will definitely do it again.

Nonetheless, one has to pay a price to look good. In order to achieve my curls I had to look like this for 8 or so hours.

I looked like I had Mickey Mouse’s ears.

Then I thought I looked more like Chun Li from the famous Street Fighters game back in the 1990s. I mean not like exactly alike but just similar hairstyles. 😛

What do you think?

    Sharon, Thanks. =D

    I’m starting to kinda sorta maybe like curly hair but yes, it is a bitch to maintain!

    Even doing that curling thing took up quite a bit of time for me in the morning (because I’m not used to it), what with the gel and moose and scrunching the curls.

    I suppose that’s a price to pay if you want that look. Girls eh? hehe
