Rag Curls! I do have a curling iron. Two in fact (one large, one medium). Bizarre for someone who never ever curls their hair. But both of them are too large for my short hair. So I started looking for alternatives. Pincurls seems to be on the biggest rec's across the board, but my fingers can't ever hold onto the hair, I drop pins, drop the curl - oh and I don't have hairspray. So! I kept looking. Rag curls seemed to be where it was at.
I found this lovely retro-inspired blogger who actually showed an adorable tutorial for short hair. I cut up an old tee and got to work. I do suggest using a stiff cotton if you have it, but the tee did work. I imagine stiffer cotton only helps you hang onto things. I did use a wave/anti-frizz spray and a little gel run through wet hair, but otherwise it was just some strips of cloth and time. I added pictures of my hair tied up, and right after I pulled the 'rags' out. I wound up sleeping on the curls and ran a comb through them so they softened into loose waves. However I think this is a great way to get a variety of curls with some great control - and it's nearly free to do. I will definitely be trying this again as my hair grows out.
