This particular look used to be a telltale sign of a perm that had fried the hair and had to be cut off. Large perm rods giving a wave like this can only be used on longer hair. The only way you could achieve this large, loose body chemically was to perm longer hairstyles and then give a short haircut such as this one on Kylie Minogue. Once only found on hair with an overdone perm, now it is fashion with all the crimpers available. Simply used the plate from one of these appliances that produces large type S-waves here and there on a short hairstyle and you can have this look for yourself!
