Those styles were typically achieved with pin curls.  On youtube there are tons of pin curl tutorials, I would start there.  Then, I would place a hairnet on the hair and steam the curls in.  Now, it will take a very large pot, because you don't want to crush the curls, and I would stuff the inside of the unit with something like a small towel covered in foil to retain the shape of the unit, and steam for maybe 2 hours.  The vendors use a wave roller that I still have yet to find, but I am still looking.

Lmao in the fireplace, what??! but yes the hair being bleached could have possibly had something to do with the hair messing up, when I purchased wagman hair for the forst time I boiledbthat hair quite a few times and didn't any problems,that was even after I colored the hair red and it still lasted through the boiling.

It was still secure on the rods when I took it out. Now this was  very light blonde  so maybe that had something to do with it since it had already been bleached a lot in China to get that light. The piece was ruined so I had to throw it in the fireplace.
 
LOL  Sorry that comment was just so random.  Lol.
 
Sorry that happened to you.  Yes it sounds like the hair was not so great to begin with, and 2 hours is a long time if you want waves, as the longer you keep it on the heat the more kinky it will be.  Also, the fewer rollers you will need.  For waves, a few rollers are needed.
 
 Hair does make good kindling tho.Wink
