Rap star celebrity Ciara has almost as many different looks as she does tunes. She boogies to the beat with ultra-long, lush coils of curls. Could these be hair extensions, hair pieces, or a wig? My professional opinion is a big fat yes, with a nod toward all of the above.
What if you have hair that is just as lush as Ciara's and would like to achieve this look for yourself? Here is what you can do: Wash and condition your hair, then rinse and towel dry. Apply a good setting gel or lotion with a lot of moisturizer.

You will need some medium-sized rollers that will be easy for you to work with and an old-fashioned rattail comb. Begin rolling at your crown, taking sections about 1/2 inch in diameter.
Set your rollers in a vertical placement instead of the normal horizontal pattern. Follow the setting pattern in irregular checkerboard rows as you go down, filling in any gaps that come up.
Do the same on the sides as you work your way up to the top. When your hair is dry, gently finger it into place and use styling spray if desired.
