What to do with hair for sock hop?

It's shoulder length and curly so If I straighten it, it will be about 2 inches longer. I can do both, leave it curly (big barrell curls) or straighten but where to I go from there?

  • What is a sock hop? It sounds like some 50's poodle skirt thing. If that's what it is, just leave it curly and go for a ponytail sort of high up but not on top of your head. Tie a scarf or something around the base of it and call it good. :-)

  • Straighten it, put it into a high ponytail, and tie a long loose ribbon around the elastic. If you have bangs--style them in a blunt cut, and hairspray them to death--otherwise pull back any layers with bobby pins and hairspray to death! LOL :o)

  • I was going to say back pony tail or high on the head, if it's like the old sock hops.

  • I'd put it in a ponytail with a silky ribbon.

    Can it reach into a ponytail?  I'd put it in a ponytail and tie a ribbon around it!

  • We only put our hair up in pony tails at our sock hops

  • Definitely a pony tail up high with a bow or ribbons.  That's how they wore their hair back then.
