Happy hair

Just a very quick post today to share my amazing hair news…
On Wednesday night, feeling tired and ready for bed I showered and got into my jammies to watch Mad Men before turning in. As I was drying my hair I thought that I might as well try something new to curl my hair and went to dig out my unused foam rollers. I could only find 5, but figured I’d try it anyway.
With my hair only slightly damp I put the curlers in, curling straight up to the hair line and tied a scarf round the lot.
And this is what I ended up with in the morning.

Cute no? I really like the peek-a-boo wave on my left side.
Amazingly, despite putting no product at all on my hair, it’s only dropped very slightly all day. I’m amazed, it has to be an effect of the perm because this would never have happened before.
The curlers were only mildly uncomfortable and didn’t really bother me at all – I could happily sleep in them every night. Plus, putting 5 curlers in is 3 minutes work. It couldn’t be easier.

I also thought I'd add this photo. This is today, after sleeping in in - no curlers or scarves or anything. I'm stunned how well it's lasted with no product and I love my 'Lara Turner' wave!


  1. Awesomeness is hair that works like you want it to!!! HUrrahs!!

  2. Wow, this is such a fantastic result and it looks just as good on the 2nd day! I'm so impressed!

  3. looks great, very sophisticated and not to frizzy.

  4. Your hair is lovely and very retro. Its brilliant that your hair has kept its curl overnight too!

  5. It looks great! Foam rollers are my ideal way to curl my hair. I don't have the patience for pin curls. When I want to make sure that my curls last really well, at night before bed I'll just put them up in the foam rollers again. Not getting my hair wet again, just to kind of keep bed head from making them fall. Really helps for 2nd day hair.

  6. Your hair looks lovely. I must try rollers again. Do you remember 'benders' or are you too young? They were those long foam rods with wire inside which were absolute agony to sleep on! With hindsight maybe you weren't supposed to...

    Hello anyway! I just randomly checked my stats, saw your site as a referring one and discovered I'm on your sidebar. How kind! Do you follow? Pop over and say hi, am following you now (I'm an ex Bristol girl, went to university there and miss it. Lovely city)

  7. You look fab! Yay for a great hairstyle :)

  8. Amazing that your hair works well with no products ... Fabulous! The second day you have a look "Lana Turner. " Fantastic!

  9. Lovely curls! What an amazing result from such fast work! So perfect for an everyday use. I feel a bit the same with my pincurls, which used to take 2h but now get done in 30 min.
    The perm sounds even better and better! I tipped a friend of mine with very straight hair, and first she was a bit hesitant. But then I showed her how you didn't get poodle-frizz and she fell for the idea! =)
