    I would love a straightener. I'd wear my hair down every day!
    Get one I see them as an essential
    It doesn't have to be exxy. I had a wahl before my ghd. I paid $120 for it at hairdressers and after 2 years of everyday use it died, so I bought another. You can get them off ebay, brand new for under $50 and they also curl like a ghd does.


    ETA: I just checked, they're around $30. I had a pink, then a green (I have kept it as a back up)

    My fave straightener was a Remington ceramic slimline one which I paid all of $30 for at priceline years ago. I gave it to my sister a few years back and now she's got super short hair and my ghd broke she's given it back to me. Its about 6 years old now and going strong!

    I'm going to get a GHD in a few months time. Our finances are a bit tied up/short so I have to wait regardless but I'll get one soon!!

    When my hair was long (now a concave bob), I used to style my fringe (Bettie Page style) and straighten my hair just to neaten it (because it's pretty much straight anyway) and curl the ends under just slightly so they didn't flick out, and because dead-straight wasn't really very pinup.

    When I was couldn't be stuffed I still had to style the fringe, but would just put it in a bun or ponytail.

    Try pincurls. You can do it at night and sleep with them in.

    Up until yesterday my hair was halfway down my back and super thick. It took way too long to do, so I used to wash it and put it up in a messy bun...and not brush it again until I washed it ahaon 2-3 days later lol.

    So I chopped over 3 inches off it yesterday and Got it thinned right out. Now I can either let it dry naturally (which doesn't take all day now Its not so thick and long) and it's wavy or take 10 mins and straighten it.

    It's still past my shoulders, so not exactly short but nowhere near as long as it was.
