Really Big Hair

It seems as though the big hair look is just as elusive as the updo. I've tried achieving it, I really, really have, but have failed miserably. Just because the dang curls always come out before the night ends! But nonetheless, I still heart this look!

Sometimes when I want to try something different with my hair I try to make it nice and fluffy with some big curls.

However my hair is just all out weird. It seriously has a mind of it's own. No matter how long I leave the curlers in or hold the curling iron in my hair... Heck I can even use a WHOLE can of hair spray... my hair is flat within 2hrs. -When I was younger, back when tight perms were popular, I went to the hair stylist and had a tight perm put in. Within a week my hair was loose waves... by two weeks it was flat again. ugh!

Big hair totally rocks and I really should try this look...I hope that my hair is not too long...Next party...Im going to go for it..hahah

My hair holds curl really well...but I don't think ANYONE can achieve this kind of look without a couple cans of hairspray and a professional on "standby".
Their hair is GORGEOUS tho.
We can dream, right?

That first image is what I always aspire to get my hair to look like. Nothing sexier then big hair done right.

I have BIG hair naturally, although I'd love to be able to tame it into voluminous, silky strands. Just not meant to be. Funny that you should post this today, I have some "big hair" happening on my blog today as well.

i love big hair! the bigger the better

Nikki said...

My hair would never do that. But I might be able to acheive those arms...

AH said...

i wish i could make my hair this big... unfortunately it's very straight and nordic, meaning that even a can of hairspray can't make it stay big for longer than a couple of hours...

Michelle said...

I used to have an afro this big when I was younger...I'm not sure I'd bring it back in style. It was a lot of work! :-))

What a fantastic look! My hair doesn't hold curl very well, but if I did, this would be the first thing I would try!

Claudz said...

I have hair that has a mind of it's own. Some days it's curly and other days fluffy. I wish I had the confidence to pull off this look

HitomiNeko said...

Jennifurla said...

I prefer super sleek almost lifless hair...does that make me weird??

Josie said...

My hair REFUSES to hold curl -- mostly because my competitive cheerleading days turned me off to hairspray. Jealous of that first girl!

kendall k. said...

oh yes, to be able to pull off this hair. Mine is way to fine to get that much volume and I've accepted it :)
gorgeous photos!!

Ashley said...

I love this too! I wish my hair had more volume naturally, it never holds when I want it to be big and puffy!

I am a lover of big hair too. I use hot rollers on those special nights. Even if I wash that day I use a dry shampoo to add texture and height. Good luck

These hair do's are incredible! Reminds me of getting ready for prom 10 yrs ago. Best left to someone else doing it for you! I'm sure there's some tutorials on you tube though if you really wanted to do it yourself eventually!

Miss Val's Creations said...

Wow! Those are some seriously big hairdos! I can't do big hair myself since mine is too fine and straight. ~Val

Style Attic said...

We always want what we can't have. Most of us know that this is virtually impossible, therefore it looks SO good :) Ha! I totally get it and proves that all forms of stylizing is art!! XO

Kimbirdy said...

it's gorgeous!! i have ridiculously thick, curly hair and i was able to accomplish this once. but my hair is so long now i don't think it would stay up very well. it's such a fun look!
