How to Use Hair Rollers – Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Choose Your Rollers

There are many different types and sizes of hair rollers available today. How do you choose the right roller for your hair type and hairstyle? 

First, consider the length of your hair. If you have short hair, you’ll want to use smaller rollers. For medium-length hair, use medium-sized rollers. And for long hair, go with large rollers.

Next, think about what kind of curl you want to create. Do you want tight curls or loose waves? Various types of rollers will give you different kinds of curls. Choose the roller that will give you the kind of curl you want.

  1. Wash and Condition Your Hair

Before you start rolling your hair, you’ll want to make sure it’s clean and conditioned. Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo to eliminate any dirt, oil, or product build-up. Then, apply a leave-in conditioner to help protect your hair from the hairdryer’s heat.

Towel-dry your hair until it’s just damp. Don’t roll your hair when it’s wet because it will take forever to dry, and the curls will be loose and undefined.

  1. Partition the Hair into Several Sections

Start with small sections of hair. It’s easier to work with small sections when you’re first starting. Use a comb to part the hair into several horizontal sections. If you have long hair, you may need to partition the hair into vertical sections.

Clip each section of hair up so it’s out of the way while you work on another section.

  1. Start Hair Rolling at Your Hairline

Take a small section of hair from one of the sections you’ve created. If you’re using a curling iron, wrap the hair around the curling iron barrel. If you’re using hot rollers, place the roller at your hairline and roll it down towards the ends of your hair.

Repeat this process until all of your hair is rolled. Once all of your hair is in rollers, let it sit for 20-30 minutes so the curls can set.

  1. Dry the Curls

Once the curls have been set, it’s time to dry them. If you’re using hot rollers, remove the rollers and let your hair air-dry, or use a diffuser on your hairdryer to dry the curls.

If you used a curling iron, gently unclip each curl and let it fall. Again, you can either air-dry your hair or use a diffuser on your hairdryer.

Once your hair is dry, lightly mist it with hairspray to help keep the curls in place. And that’s it! You’ve successfully used hair rollers to create beautiful, bouncy curls!


Using rollers on your hair is a great way to achieve different styles. You can use them on wet or dry hair, depending on the look you’re going for. Be sure to invest in good-quality rollers that won’t damage your hair. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to create any style you want.
