Big girl curls
Texas-sized hair is back and you can't get your hair much bigger than with curls. Whether you love loose beachy waves like Shakira's or dozens of tight spirals like Beyonce's, the trick to this style is having the right tools and styling products.
Here's a tip for achieving a full head of beautiful curls in half the time it would take to do each curl with a cone-shaped iron (they make great modern-looking curls, but are tricky and time consuming to use). Section off the topmost layers of your hair and the middle layers. Use hot rollers on the underside of your hair except around your face. On the middle section, use a barrel-shaped curling iron. On the top layers, and around your face, finish the look with spirals created with a cone-shaped iron.

It needs to be trimmed more often than longer styles and many short styles need to be washed and styled every day to look right.
