    Why would you even say that about yourself? You are NOT ugly. And your curly hair will be gorgeous (if you take care of it obv). And if you find you do have questions on your hair people up here ALWAYS have answers. So go for it.

    And cut it out with that ugly talk. :(

    I don't look like Shakira either. I feel like I'm so used to having big (curly) hair that wearing my hair straight would make my face look bigger/rounder. Give you curly hair a chance. It's much easier than fighting it.

    I have a round face and ppl say I look better with curls straight hair kinda draws more attention to the fact I have a round face

    I'm 55, and whatever beauty I might have once had is fading. I can pull off curly, long, gray hair. Why?...because that's what kind of hair I have.

    I'm rockin' my own curls in my own way. I own it. If I can - anyone can!:iroc:

    omg you're cute so stop the madness about not being as pretty as so and so and enjoy your curly hair. :flower:

    You are not ugly at all. Curls I think look beautiful on everyone; what you naturally are is beautiful. You need to work on positive self attitude and self esteem---be positive! You are gorgeous. Believe it and the world will too.

    We are usually our own worst critics. If your avatar is you, you look like a very attractive girl in your own right with or without curls. Look around at the pics here. We have all face shapes, all curl types, and are more often than not very attractive and able to carry off our own look very well.
    Be Happy!

    Type:2b/3ab?
    Texture:Medium/fine
    Porosity:Normal
    Elasticity:Normal

    Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning. :happy6:

    Young woman, stop that right now! your curls, and you, are lovely. I always think that we look best with what we were born with; and G-d gave you curls. I was once told by a man in a bar that I have "party hair" - and it was a high compliment! women pay the big bucks to get curls. And, if you look at the great painters of history - their standards of beauty were women with curves - and Curls!

    I've only been rocking my girls full time for a few months now. And I think they look great on my round face. You should love the shape you were giving & the mess of curly hair you have. :D

    My boyfriend calls them "chipmunk cheeks" and giggles when I smile and they lift up my sunglasses.

    Adriana is just jealous cause she lacks naturally curly hair. Curly! my ex/roommate always tells me that I have sex hair and it's just sexy and i get hit on way more when I have my hair curly rather than straight.

    I've always wanted a round face! My face is long and thin. There are many different types of beauty and prettiness, and I think it's common for us to want what we don't have. It's the grass is always greener syndrome.

    The un-pretty part is just your inner critic trying to make you feel bad. {{{HUGS}}} - I say rock your curls proudly!

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    My fat head looks SOOOO much better with big hair! And you're so cute. :) Flat hair makes a full face look fuller.

    Only thing I hate about it is it takes longer for your hair to look outrageously huge! (Mine, not yours. You have great hair!)
