if it has a natural curl to it, mousse and scrunch with a diffuser. If not, french plait it when wet and leave it overnight to get wavy hair, or use heated rollers on dry hair/normal rollers on wet hair to get curls. They all really work for me and I have very very straight thick hair that normally doesn't do what it's told
or what figure it out says but I don't have the patience for all that faff
Best way to curl hair without using curling tongs? Watch

wash your hair in the evening, without using too much conditioner as i find this makes the waves fall out. whilst wet, without any drying, scrunch hair repeateadly until the curls become defined. then you can either plait tightly (better when french plaited) or screw up into a high bun. if you do the bun, it's a bit more effort but looks more natural i think, making sure it's tight and scrunched up. when you wake up the next morning take out all clips/bands and it will still be quite damp, scrunch a bit, then apply mousse. i then apply quite a lot of mousse and curling spray (tresemmé, really good!) if i want it curly rather than wavey. Sometimes the front bits need a quick curl with a tong but the rest is fine, especially if you separate the layers (or fake this), ie. clipping the sides up so the curls look like they fall at different levels - especially at the back this makes it really curly.
For some really curly bits, get a few wet strands before hand and coil them up into a spiral then simply pin to the head. these go really curly!
Hope this makes sense, is easier than it sounds! I love doing this to my hair.
As a routine i always put my hair in a bun before bed, and wake up in the morning with lovely waves tres gooood :P
