Woman in Tx like our hair big. My gamma always used to say: "the bigger the hair, the closer to heaven!" and that is so true! (:
I curl my hair in 4 layers, curling both towards my face and away (this depends on length, texture, etc.) when done finger-brush the curls through. Take small sections near the top of the head and back comb to create a 'big' effect and add volume. Add a medium hold hair spray to front of hair and heavier hold near the back (you don't want the front to look stiff, but it's great to hold the back!)
add a headband or flower!
