A vid showing how i make my tendrils....
Becuz my hair is longer...my tendrils stay down when i do them. It could just be that they are traned to stay ut being done this way a lot. However if your hair still defys gravity....you have to add weight by using product or clips or both.

So...you have a pair of sunglasses...or two....brace style or otherwise...and the screw fell out and you don't have another set...no problem!
Take some armiiture wire....20 guage copper, or otherwise. (I've also done this with flux wire and soldered it afterward) here's what you do...make a wirework design on one end of 3 inch length of wire...using a pair of pliers...been the wire back leaving the end strait. Place the wire thru the opening in the frame and lens (brace style) of the glasses from the front so the decorative knot shows...make a lock knot with the wire on the back tightening as needed. If the brace frames has two holes. You can bring both ends thru from the back and make a double decorative knot on the front tightening as you go. Also you can make a wire knot and insert from the back and make a decorative closure.
If you're just reconnecting...make the knot wire...trim the wire down to 1 inch, bend back flush with opening after inserting the wire thru all rings of the frame connector. Wind a knot as close as possible to base...press with plirs. Done.

Here's two ideas revisited. I used ORS olive oil girls pudding as a setting gel with my curlformers...and look at my hair! The set is firm and springy. I admit I didn't like this product at first....it made my twist outs a little funky feeling and it smells like kool-aid. For ponytails...my hair felt a little stiff. However as a setting gel... ka-pow! Firm, soft, shiny hold. You can tell looking at the back where its twisted...it doesn't do well on my hair by itself....but with. The roller set...that's a whole different look.
I have used setting gels, setting lotions, plain water and many other standard styling aids and the set wouldn't last, would look dry and there was no firmness to the curl....it would flop about an hour or two later.
This....is a whole new day...a match that can't be beat. I love this product for the purpose of rolling my hair on the curlformers. This will be my go to style.
