Paper Bag Hair Curling
You may not have realized it (or may not have ever watched Michelle Phan), but paper bags are a great, cheap way in order to curl your hair. Unlike rollers, paper bags aren’t quite as much of a pain to sleep in and you’re sure to be able to accomplish curls of all lengths—as opposed to having to worry about whether they fit around the barrel of a curling iron or not. Not to mention that it’s a lot easier to curl your hair in a means that won’t damage it—simply because no heat means no frizz and no potential problems later as you curl your hair again and again. But the question it—how exactly do you go about curling your hair with paper bags?

First of all, you need to cut the bottom off of a large brown paper bag, preferably from the grocery store. Then, proceed to cut it in one inch strips from the top downward. Try to keep the strips even. A large bag should be enough for medium length hair, but if you want smaller curls or more curls, you’ll want to have probably one—maybe two—more bags.
Next, you need to get your hair prepared. It should be damp—not wet. Wet hair will more than likely equal not so great curls, or even ripped paper that won’t do anything. Either way, you need to make sure that your hair isn’t dripping—but it shouldn’t be bone dry either.
Next, take a small section of your hair (you may have it half up and half down, depending on what is easiest for you to work with) twist the paper around your lock of hair until it makes a v shape. If you cross the ends over one another and pull somewhat tight, you’ve got it. Then, start to roll upward. Keep it even. Once you reach the end of where you want your curls, go ahead and tie or pin the paper ends together.
Sleep with them in and then take them out one by one the next day—and then style however you would like! It’s probably a good idea to put some kind of product in your hair.
