I have no idea who Shirley Temple is or what she looks like, but in regards to GHD's and this style, hold them on a slight angle when you get toward to end of your sections of hair. Back comb the roots and use a mousse or spray at the roots also. Use your finger tips to "ruffle" the roots and think volume!
I had a 'lob' cut and pictured myself with tousled loose waves, along the lines of Jenna Coleman. It turns out I'm really cack handed at using straighteners to do curls /waves, and curling wands too. I've watched numerous youtube videos, but no, I'm just crap at doing hair.
As I had watched too many fail videos of people scorching their hair off, when I wanted to learn to curl my hair I asked my hair dresser to teach me how.
She is a mobile hairdresser so comes to my house and I think she charged me £5 to curl my whole head plus talk me through it. So she showed me how to curl my hair, how to wrap it and what direction plus how long to hold my hair on the barrel for.
It helped that I could take over and try some of it for myself. Now I can do my whole head in under 10 mins and my hair is bra strap length.
Ask your hairdresser to teach you. If they gave you the cut they should show you how to maintain it.
