I have really short hair. What are some ideas to style it?
A great way to style shorter hair is to twirl little sections around your fingers when it's wet, after combing it with a good combing conditioner. The tighter your curls, the smaller you should make your little twirls. Then let your hair totally dry, without combing, finger combing, or brushing your hair. This will give you lots of striking little Shirley Temple coils. For pictures of this technique being done, you can check out what Aja is doing with her hair. For more examples of how stunning this style is, you can look at Chi, Mya, and Frances

In the morning, you can follow the tips in the Curly Primer for Refreshing your curls.
