Would love to know your tried and tested triumphs. Ideally a brush/tong of some type rather than rollers but will consider all. Have very fine shoulder length hair but in good condition. Thanks

Mousse wet hair and let it dry / dry it. You need a babyliss conical curling wAnd.section hair starting from back / nape and work up to front.

Ghds for curling smile

I have to second the Ghds!

I have the straightest hair in the world, nothing ever, ever curled it. I even had my hair permed when I was younger and it didn't curl!

However, for my wedding earlier this year my hairdresser said she would give it a go and lo and behold I got beautiful soft curls and loved it.

I've put Ghds on my Christmas list!

I've just done DD's hair with straighteners after trying and failing with curling tongs.

TattyDevine had a youtube tutorial she posted a while ago. It is quite simple really.

GHDs for me too! Have tried pretty much all sorts, tongs, heated rollers etc but when I use the GHDs it's just a much nicer curl, and stays in for two days. Took a while to get the hang of though - TattyDevine's video on YouTube helped massively! smile

Have tried babyliss curling tongs - great curls....for about 15 minutes
Have tried babyliss heated rollers - ok curls ........for about 10 minutes
Have tried babyliss big hair dryer - great curls .........until I go outside
Have tried GHDs (following Tatty's video tutorial - fantastic curls ....... lasts til I wash again

GHDs really do the trick and with a little practice can create ringlets, soft curls, tighter curls and through the day rather than falling flat my curls seem to get curlier.
