Bulk on the Top
An assemblage of short and sassy clips stand up and out bringing plenty of bulk on the top that captures the side temple into splays of hair. Movements of layered coils lie amass upon each other into the developed thickness of desired curls.
Another thought for this image is to swing all the curls up and fasten with a band and allow the curls to be flicked wherever they desire. The same pert top would demonstrate a short stoutness reflected from the layers, while the upswing would give a dressier appeal.
