On my recent trip to Portland for a wedding, I forgot my curling iron. After throwing my fists up in the air, I saw that Hotel Monaco had a list of complimentary items it can provide their guests. Of course they would! And of course, a curling iron was on the list. Hotel Monaco is awesome.
Anyway, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to explore how to put some Oomph to your hair when you are curling iron-less. It made me think back to my junior high school days when I would roll socks into my wet hair and wake up with dry waves.
In those hot iron deprived days, I would use long tube (!) socks, roll my hair up, and tie the sock ends together to secure them. On this trip, I had only brought footsie socks. But I did have some additional resources.

I wasn't going to have time to sleep in these "curlers" so I kept them in as long as I could while doing makeup and getting dressed.

I was in a rush so I blow dried my hair very quickly. My hair was still a bit damp when I undid the socks. But I still got wavy results!
What are some odd things you've used to get some curl or wave to your hair? Besides socks, I've heard of using soda cans!
