A disaster in the making

A while ago, "my mommy told me about" (she said I needed to insert that right there) a way to curl my hair without heat, or those uncomfortable curlers. Sounds genius, right?

I don't know how it looks now, but one thing's for sure- I am NOT going to face the public today.
