    Hey, I really want to curl my hair, and wondered whether you girls could recommend any curlers that are pretty cheap but do a cool job.

    Any suggestions welcome

    I know who would have thought it. I was planning to go shopping for curling tongs the next day but I saw them while doing my food shopping (next to the tampons lol) and thought at that price they are definitely worth a try.

    Haha! wowingness. It's like GHD, no doubt they're good, but kind of expensive, yet my £24.99 straighteners are brilliant and only 10 degrees off GHD - so what's the point!
    I just feel like changing my style haha...

    I can't do mine with my GHDs...it just either comes out like zig zaggy (cant describe but mean harsh angles not curls) or i cant wrap my hair around it anyway cos i'll get my fingers caught :-s

    You can just use rags, which are free if you cut up an old t shirt!

    You cut up an old t shirt (cotton is best, also your dad's is good too) into rags about 1.5cm wide and 10-15cm long. They don't have to be accurate. Then, wrap sections of your hair around your finger like you would with curling tongs. Tie it with each rag sorta through the hole.

    It's best if you have slightly damp hair and do it before you go to bed. You'll probably need someone to help too.

    You probably won't get much sleep though, as every way you lie there's a lump there!

    It's more for ringletty type things than just a casual wave, but you can brush it out a bit with your fingers.

    edit: I'll try it out tonight (not my whole head of course! )

    That's quite a good idea actually! I remember my cousin doing it once, and it looked really pretty

    Curling with straighteners, hmph I can't do that!

    Heated rollers are the best but you can get ceramic curlers now if you want to invest in some. Mark Hill had some at £35 reduced from £70 in Boots several weeks back0I've got them and they're great!
