The hair may also be straight or naturally curly with different types of hair definition since some women have really tight curls while others have loose, huge, wavy curls.
Whatever the case, both women with either straight or curly hair can both achieve curled hairstyles. For the straight haired women, they may achieve this through the use of rollers or curling irons. While curling hair, be sure to pay attention to necessary procedures that must be followed such as conditioning and ensuring that you protect your hair from heat.
