    I wouldn't. Besides not liking to go out looking in shambles, when I'm getting off a plane to see my sweetie, I want to go run over and see my sweetie! Not keep him waiting around while I futz about in some yucky airport bathroom!

    No. I donīt use rollers, but if I did, Iīd not be seen outside the house with them on.

    Oh, if I wore them, I'd totes take them out a bit before landing. Not within the last few minutes, but maybe a half-hour before, or so. The person next to me could eat a deck, if they are displeased.

    I guess I'm more self-conscious about the hour and a half or so beforehand that people will have to gawk. If I can find a nice head scarf, I'm definitely going to be brave and do it.

    Would you go out with a facial on your face? This somehow seems equivalent - I mean, if you can cover it in such a way that nobody can tell you're doing something to your hair, then that's different (like the winter hat example).

    Instead, I'd wait until your hair is 90% dry before you leave, then do one damp bun on your crown - you can hold it with little clippies, which should be fairly security safe. The dry, recycled airplane air should dry the other 10% while you're on the way. Damp bunning always gives me nice wavies. Also, this looks like a style you did on purpose.

    Another thing to consider - if you can't rest your head comfortably for that many hours, you're likely to arrive somewhat crankier and more tired than you would otherwise.

    Metal in your hair can totally set off the metal detector - I got taken aside once on account for my barrette.

    I'm pretty sure if I tried that, the person sitting next to me would be very displeased indeed! There is no way I'd be able to avoid invading their space trying to get the rollers out, or spaces if I was in a middle seat.

    I would practise to make sure you can unroll them in such tight quarters to make sure you don't accidentally elbow your seatmate(s) in the eye

    I wouldn't wear rollers to the airport. But then again, I wouldn't wear rollers to the laundromat. I don't like rollers. At. All.

    Rag curls with a buff over top, maybe.

    i'd have no issues wearing them in public. Although, I agree that you might have an issue at the airport.

    I would take them out on the way, and then put them up in a kerchief to keep them from getting mashed on the ride.

    I actually went out last saturday with a head full of pin curls with a kerchief over them to the hardware store. DH said it was very Rosie the Riveter! LOL! I guess from going to photoshoots with them in, Im not embarrassed any more to wear them out.

    I wouldn't feel dressed if I wore rollers in public. But if I really wanted curly hair I might consider plopping/plunking and cover that up with something like a bandana or hat. I figure it would be comfy and could look kind of nice if covered properly.
