If I could go back in time for one day, my first stop would be the hair salon. I’ve always loved the gorgeous hairstyles of stars like Liz Taylor, Ertha Kitt, and Brigette Bardot. Rollers, whether they’re heated or velcro, have been used by women in-salon and at-home since their invention in the 1920s and recently made a comeback thanks to social media apps like Tiktok.
“Hair rollers can give an added volume boost to a normal blowout,” says celebrity hairstylist and brand founder Andrew Fitzsimons. “Both hot and velcro rollers work on every hair type, though I love hot rollers because you can achieve multiple looks beyond a standard blowout.”
Fitzsimons has used rollers on his clients, which include the Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, and Megan Fox.
My second stop? I’m off with my new hairdo to steal Bob Dylan’s heart, naturally.
Ahead, a step-by-step process on how to use hair rollers.
