How to best show off partly curly hair?

After a lifetime of stick-straight limp hair, I've finally gone curly! . . . partly. What do do with hair that is half straight and half curly? What haircut can I get to maximize the curl?

After giving birth to my son almost two years ago, I've discovered with delight that some of my hair is coming in curly. I mean full on sproingy ringlet curls. Here's the problem, though; it's only the UNDER part of my haiir, the part around the nape of my neck and halfway up the back of my head. The top part of my hair is still mostly straight, mmmmaybe a little bit of wave. If I pull back my hair with a clip, I have a waterfall of straightish hair over an underlayer of tight curls.
I would love it if it were ALL curly, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards, unless I give birth to several more children (which. . . no). So what can I do to maximize the curly appearance, apart from just wearing it back all the time? The curly part of my hair is about this
curly, while the upper part of my hair is more like this
. I am a busy and low-maintenance woman, so blowdrying or product is not likely to be a part of my regular routine.
