Rediscover rollers (or experience them for the first time)
The self-grip variety is easy to master. Brush a little hairspray through dry hair, secure a few rollers around your hairline and on the crown of your head, blast them with a blow-dryer for a minute, and (privately) go about your business. After 15 minutes, remove the rollers. Your hair will fall away from your face in soft waves.
For long hair, use medium or large rollers, like these gold 1 1/4 inch RickyCare Fusion Self Grip Rollers. For shorter hair, try small, 1 inch rollers, like the silver Denman Thermo-Ceramic Rollers.
