No heat curls FAIL!


Ok, so we've all seen the tutorials out there for no heat curls so I thought I'd give it a go. I have absolutely masses of super fine hair and curls never seem to stay so I thought....bring it on Mr Elastic headband!

I was thinking of you Shosh at the time :)

Here I am with the elastic band get to this stage go check out this video here.

She's a bit weird cos she says she'd go out in the day with the elastic band in...urm, yeah, ok then.

Anyway, I followed her instructions exactly but only left it in for a couple of hours. It was too tight on my forehead! I had the elastic band mark literally all day!

As I started to take the band out it was looking promising....

Or maybe not....! I brushed it out gently as suggested and ended up with the following.

See elastic mark on forehead!

The elastic mark lasted longer than the curls!

Ah well, never mind :)

    To be fair though, with the band in it did have somewhat of a crisp 1930s style; add to that the Austrian accent ... I say!

    In pick four, do I see a steam iron - desperate measures for getting the best curl? ;0)

  2. LOL!

    Id just like to clarify.....I have never worn an elastic band on my head (WHO does that????)so why you were thinking of me, I dont know!

  3. I'm with you! I tried the "sock bun curls" and FAILED as well. I even have lots of long thick hair and thought EASY PEASY and this would work great. NOT! Check it out here: ... maybe you'll have better luck than me.

  4. Have you tried putting it up with wet hair? Maybe that would help a little bit!?!

  5. I don't think this is a fail at all! I think they look nice. But about the elastic headband mark, try using a headband that is stretchy but flat and won't leave a mark. Happened to me the first time. And try it with wet hair. Cute though!

  6. Looks good ..... gives you a nice wave :)
    I wouldnt dare try it with my hair, my hair is wild enough without adding more curls rofl x

  7. At least you can say you tried, right? Thanks for comig to link up at the Weekend Wow Me party! Hope to see you next weekend!

  8. I love that you shared your fail! I tried the "sock bun curls" and it failed MISERABLY!

  9. I've been wanting to try this! I have superfine hair too so I don't know if it will work. I was planning on sleeping on it though.

  10. Maybe you could add a ribbon around your head like the hippies wore to cover the forehead crease? I'm thinking your brain is just extra large, hence the too tight band. Thanks for sharing it with us!
