AND YET. Vlogger Tina Lee of MakeupWearables Hairstyles seems to think that this is an "easy" and "fun" way to get curls. As opposed to, I dunno, using a curling iron, or curlers, or any number of other devices that are actually DESIGNED to be used with hair.

This incredibly nonsensical tutorial suggests that you take some "leftover party balloons" and blow them up halfway, pin your hair around them, and then sleep on them overnight for maximal curls — as in, exactly what you might do with curlers.
