Can you do this with shoulder-length hair?

Yes it does work. I have short hair like yours. Mine is really curly and poofy and every morning when i wake up (unless I straighten it) it looks like I'm a lion!!! I tried this and works beautifully

That's a hothouse hairstyle i hope it works with my thin hair lol

did it ever work??!!!

Casper021 (author)2013-10-21

It looks awesome :) But I have thin (Very Thin) curly shoulder length hair am I still able to do it?? And I have tried but I have started to get very cross with myself because of it.

Heather0205 (author)Casper0212017-02-04

my friend has rly thin hair ( like soooo thin ) but i tried on her and it works, just not as big and fuller looking. Does this help??? Also with your curly hair it can look quite nice or u can straighten it

My hair is long , thick, and curly

Heather0205 (author)2017-02-04

My hair is the most thick in my school of 850 people. Also it is rly long and easily gets knotty. But..... i managed it:))
