  • How to style a curly hairstyle / wavy hairstyle. Waves On A Budget - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your materials. Get a sharp knife and cut your Rolls in half

    rip or cut a stip of aluminum foil that will reach around your roll once (plus 2 inches extra). Don't make a big fuzz about measuring, really.

    Fold one small side of the foil over once. This will be on the outside once you've rolled it around. The folding prevents the outside edge from ripping all too easily.

    You guessed it: tightly roll the foil around the roll.

    Tuck in the leftover, starting at the point where the layers meet. Press the insides flat against the paper.

    This is what you end up with. 6 Rolls is pretty much enough for me, but then again, I have very fine hair. Maybe you'll need 2 more.

    This was insanely quick, wasn't it?

    Whooaaaa, no makeup! xD

    I recommend to roll your hair so that the curler is -under- the strand you're urling. Does that make sense? Pin the roll to the hair by just sliding in one or two bobby pins just as close to your scalp as you can roll the thing.

    Like that.

    This step will be picture-ised as soon as my hair has been in this stage long enough. ;)

Well as Rachel said, it's mainly a question of preservation. But if you do use a blowdryer to help your curls go along, Leonies point also applies.

I could be missing something here, but why do you need the aluminium?

Just a guess would be that it stiffens the curler so it doesn't bend or that if your hair is damp the cardboard won't get soggy.
