Suggestions for wearing hair up?

Hey ladies! Last Friday I had my hair cut and I absolutely love it. It's shorter than I've ever had it which is leading to some problems at work. I'm a server at a restaurant and I can't have my hair touching my shoulders while working. My new hair is just under an inch too long. I'm having trouble finding a way to put my hair up that doesn't completely kill my curls. It's too short to braid and definitely too short to put up in a pony tail. I work during the day and by the time I'm ready to do anything fun at night my curls are compressed and icky. Help!

    Clips? When my hair was short I used to pull the front back with small clips/bobby pins.

    I put my hair up most with hair sticks for that very reason (not wanting to kill the curl). I'd give those a try. Also works for shorter hair too, which is a plus, and no snagging and such like with other types of hair holders.
