However, tongs may give you the control you want and make it really easy to create a style and get a whole head of curls to last a long time. The effect is just completely different to hot rollers, they look too perfect and unbelievable. Hairspray just makes the curls crispy looking and when you try to brush it out to make a softer look, all you get is frizz...and still a far too perfect ringlet. It's hard work to get something really natural and even harder work to get all your hair to blend together without it all just becoming one huge curl on either side of your hair - please lord tell me I'm not the only one.
I love the effect of hot rollers so much that I think I'd have to say that no matter what. Even if it's not practical. But for nights out etc I do have to go with tongs, even if it's just on the ends otherwise by the time I'm where I'm supposed to be my hair's already flat. So which do you prefer? and have you used both? Let me know in the comments section below :D
