I do realize that it's not exactly quintessential lolita, and more suitable for maybe VK or haute couture, but I really liked the effect when paired with more traditional loli.
I do also realize that it would be relatively easy to achieve if you have naturally fizzy, poofy, curly hair, but isn't really the case for me.
I was just curious how I might obtain this look without teasing, which looks more messy to me.
I have examples of what I mean under the cut.
No, this isn't lolita, and yes, it's teased near the roots. But it's very poofy and curly further down, which is what I'm talking about.
