Lolita Curls?

Does anyone know how to make really good lolita-like spiral curls with limited supplies. I dont have alot of money to spend on new tools, and just have a 2" curler and the basic hairspray/mouse/gel.

Also, I have naturally wavy hair, shoulder length.

Any help greatly appriciated!

I've found that the best size curling iron for tight lolita curls is the 1/4 inch variety. I got a good ceramic one from revlon for about 15 bucks. For ringlets you wanna hold the iron vertically, not horizontally, as you curl. When you remove the iron from the hair, be sure to pull it downward and keep it vertical (this will preserve a perfect ringlet).

If you can't get a new curling iron, my sister discovered an easy little method that may work for you. It might not work for all hair types, but she also has naturally wavy hair so I think it should work for you. She starts by twisting damp hair into 1 to 2 inch thick ringlets. Then she clips each section at the bottom after she twists it. When her whole head is done, she lets her hair air dry. Once it's fully dry she lightly spays it with hair spray and removes the clips. I was really impressed with the results she got from such a simple method.
