    Hello ladies.

    I finally found the answer to the wave clamp question thanks to RetroMom's comment in the thread "help with finger waves". I can tell you it's not always easy to find the precise answer as a new comer: the "wave clamp" search lead to many threads, I had to look through all of them first. So I hope you don't think I'm a pain already.
    However, I'd still like to find the link mentioned above that you raved about (posted by the red-bobbed australian girl). Btw, the pomp was my fav LadyDay.
     
  5. hehe crazy, small world! I'll be honest, I forget where i post stuff so am always a bit shocked when I see replies to me in various threads!

    I was queueing upstairs with packets of pants lol Primark pants are the best
     
  6. I've finally seen the pics of you Lady Day - the work internet is being really arsey at the moment & won't show me pics anymore. Anyway, I think you look beautiful. Love the hair & the specs :D

    Stuff in hair = good

    dollydaydream- i always forget where i post too, so i tend to be on here for hours rather than the intended 10 minutes!

    lady day- you flowers are superb. i am somewhat of a hair flower collecter to- my friends get confused if i go out without one!
    i have to say though i walked through a department store the other day and found some really pretty ones with flowers and colours i'd never seen before and was about to take them to the till when i realised they were £30 ($56). imagine my shock! compared to the few pounds i spend making my own it's ridiculous! i love your flower box too! i need to find one big enough but am havin no luck other than cardboard ones.


    on a completeley different note, i have two things i need help with...

    i bought some hot sticks which arrived today- and i'm wondering if the heat spot is working. it says "fast heating" in the instructions but no time frame. i left them on for half an hour and the spot never went black- it just stayed red. wondering if they're not working properly or whether i just didn't leave them on for long enough... how long do they usually take?

    the other query is about wave clamps. my new ones arrived today but they're properly vinatage and look like they have burnt on setting lotion on a few of them. what is the best way to get rid of it? my mom said a bit of white vinegar would do the trick but i don't want to break the springs in them cos they're quite old. ideas?

    I put the front section of my hair in three smallish rollers whilst wet and left it in overnight (and all day, as the 'do was for an evening party). Then I unrolled each one, brushed it out, and rolled it back up neatly, and slid a hair grip in to the bottom of each roll, fastening it to my scalp. I probably also put one in the same position but starting at the back of the roll and pushing it towards my face. Hmm, I'm not sure how long the front of my hair was at that point. Definitely beyond my chin. Maybe down to my collar bone? I think small front rolls like that are actually easier with shorter hair because they don't end up so thick and bulky from all the layers of hair. Mine is chin-length at the front now, and I can still do little rolls.

    Eh, is it just me or does she not look quite right with such a bleach blonde look? Something is just not doing it for me. The hair looks impeccable though...

    I think her forehead looks too tan. Am I crazy?

    Yes that blonde is really severe but I think she carries it rather well.

    I found more curlers on sale today. They are Conair Cushion Curlers. They look like Velcro curlers but are made of rubber, come with clips and says you can sleep in them. Anyone try them? They were on clearance so I HAD to get them. DH just said, 'more curlers? they are taking over'.
    steam curlers
    cushion curlers
    velcro curlers
    pillow curlers
    foam curlers..........i need help.

    lol I only have foam ones, velcro and rags reading for rolling...i fully understand where you are coming from, its addictive...each type of roller gives a different effect...i love them :D

    I haven't done anything with my hair for 2 months (hangs head in shame) but its due to personal reasons..so thats a good enough excuse, I'm determined once the UK weather decides to settle that the curling will start again :D

    I don't like the blonde at all. A more golden blonde would have looked stunning on her. Or make her red again, she looks fab in red!

    LolitaHaze, lovely hair! In the third "hot sticks" pic from the top where you look like a saucy school girl, how did you do the front/ top? If we ignore the draping curls how did you do, and fasten, the pomp (if it's called that)? I love it!

    Do you use conditioner?

    One more question if I may. I attended a 40's hairstyling course and was told NOT to use any conditioner before setting my hair. The rules were:
    Wash hair with shampoo only
    Set dry hair with setting lotion (using carmen curlers, hot rollers)
    I guess this is to get the right dry and light hair quality that will hold a curl. So now I only use conditioner when I'm not going to set my hair. (My hair is thick, wavy and shoulder length.) What do you ladies do? Please let me know!

    I have curly hair, so don't use shampoo, just conditioner to wash. But I don't use a heavy conditioner, just Suave or V05. My set hair comes out fine.

    Didn't you have a "burning" desire to touch the sticks and gauge their hotness? The dot on my Babyliss set doesn't change color either, but that doesn't seem to affect the unit's performance. Five to ten minutes is usually sufficient time to reach the scorching temperatures for which Hot Sticks are famous.
