Easy Hair Trick: No Heat Curls I always love the look of big messy curls, but I have very fine, straight hair that makes it pretty difficult to achieve that look. For some reason, I can’t bring myself to buy or use a curling iron – it just feels unnatural to me, and the heat is definitely not good for my already-thin, dry hair. Luckily there is an alternative to the curling iron – you can still get those big curls — without any heat or tools! All you need is some hairspray, hair elastics, and a little bit of time. What you need: Some hair elastics – our elastic hair ties are perfect for this! They’re softer than rubber bands and won’t leave noticeable dents in your hair.
