What would you do if u had straight hair?

Curly_MariCurly_Mari Posts: 6Registered Users
(If it was naturally straight)
I would cut it like this:

I have always loved short hair... but I could never cut it like that since I have curly hair. (I like my curls anyways..)
How would you wear your straight hair? :wave:

    I would get a super cute cut, and love it at first and then realize it's super boring and want it curly again. haha

    I would be a much happier person. I just can't accept the way I look with curly hair.

    I would probably think about mine a lot less, but that might become boring very quickly.

    People are never satisfied with what they have.. straight haired people always want curls, and curlies always want straight hair.. *sigh*

    I am happy with what nature and my momma gave me though, so if I woke up with straight hair I'd probably be running to the doctor to find out what went wrong.

    :? I just don't have the features for straight hair. It took me having it relaxed to realise that! I look back at pictures of me with straight hair and it just looks 'alien', and hangs like a pair of curtains, plus I feel it actually makes my face look fatter, not a good look, lol! Therefore if I was born with straight hair, I guess curling tongs would become my new best friend!:laughing9:

    I'd cut it like Leonor Scherrer. I'm in love with her style and for me having that cut would be my only salvation.:thumbleft:

    I'd wear bangs to shorten my longish face which I can't do with curly hair. Also, I'd wear very modern versions of Sassoon type cuts - longer on one side than the other.

    I wish I had straight hair - I've seen women with straight hair step out of the shower, towel dry, comb and go. 'Nuf said. :(
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    This ^^

    I've had my hair curly for four days and I can't get it off my mind how ugly it looks despite what others say. But, I really want my hair to be healthy again.

    If I had straight hair, I'd be one of the happiness girls alive. The things I do to my hair now to try and make it silky, I have no doubt I couldn't achieve that with naturally straight hair.

    But, of course this would be if I was granted straight hair today and not born with it. If I was born with naturally straight, I'd be one of those people who say how they wished they had curly hair without knowing how frustrating it is.

    Sorry for the negative response, I'm just angry that I'm the only one in my family with curly hair :X

    You should be grateful for what you born with.. people would probably give anything for your curls, curly hair is waaay prettier than damaged straight hair.

    I absolutely love short layers and bangs, but even if I had straight hair, I'm not sure if it would look good on me. But I do love that color! :)
    A non-stick straight version that I would love is this /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com%2F_o8UQ2efK4wY%2FTSlFPa6tJoI%2FAAAAAAAAApQ%2FPDGxmgFkCps%2Fs1600%2Fhairstyles-with-bangs5.png" class="Popup
    Too bad my hair would never be that straight at the root.
  • SailaSaila Posts: 1,212Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    I'd be really bummed, but to make the most of it I would get a super sharp/edgy cut.

    I'd have it cut short without a second thought - probably a really short inverted bob. I used to envy my friends at school who would cut their hair off and look amazing.

    What about having it relaxed and working some magic with straightening? As long as you look after it (protection, deep conditioning etc and not straightening TOO often - it's ok.) I'm chopping mine off soon and will be using a bit of heat to get the style I want.... And you can get less harsh relaxers now, it's not like it used to be. Curlies have options! More so than straight haired ladies really... more difficult to get unatural curls (that stay!)

    Too bad my hair would never be that straight at the root.

    I totally wish my root of the hair was straight, I was born with naturally straight hair which turned wavy over time. If I had straight hair, I'd be happy, no need to worry about frizz or doing anything after coming out of the shower! :colors: And I'm one of those girls who always dreams/envisions herself dancing under the rain, then my nightmare of having to towel dry, comb, etc. comes alive. :toothy2: Although I do love my waves (when they behave) but like you I wish the root of my hair was naturally straight, then I wouldn't have to tie with a banana clip for some time before it dries.

    Off topic: I love these emoticons (I'm sure you can tell) and I saw a dancing under the rain emoticon on someone's signature once although I can't find it. Can someone please tell me how to do it? Thanks.

    I'd find some way to get some volume into it. Some sort of roller set? Braiding it at night? Using a curling iron? Something...straight hair is boring to me. :sad3:

    I'd probably play with it for weeks because I'm not used to it, and get a shorter, choppy layered fringy cut.emo-girl-black-hair.jpg

    I have a thing for short emo-ish hair! Im sorry XD Not that I could ever pull it off.

    Girls with straight hair kill to have naturally curly hair, so if I had straight hair I would probably be the same!

    But I would also love to give myself one of those short and spikey haircuts. Doing that with curly hair is just suicidal!!

    To recap.. I'd curl it. Flat hair... No ma'am. :p

    But if I was in the mindset I'm in now I'd embrace it. Try to make it the best it can be. :)
