Whatever your hairstyle, there’s always a time for voluminous curls! While there are endless ways to achieve the look, we’re about to suggest an old-school beauty tool you may have forgotten about: hot rollers!
We know what you might be thinking: “Hot Rolls? Really?” Yes! Not only are they back, but they’re better than ever. The best hot rollers combine the ease and volume of regular rollers with the speed of curling irons. Like their predecessors, most new sets need to be preheated so the ceramic interiors have time to get very hot. But once they’re done, they only take a few minutes to cover your entire head, and that heat really does its magic for beautiful, long-lasting curls.
Our top picks
Unlike the original hot rollers, there’s so much more variety: there are sets of hot rollers that work best for long hairstyles and short haircuts, damaged hair and frizzy hair. Newer heated roller options can also offer varied roller sizes and heat settings, sturdier clips to hold curlers in place, and auto shut-off features. Remember, just like using a hair dryer, applying heat to your hair can eventually damage it. So be sure to apply heat protectants and hair masks to make sure those curls look as glorious and bouncy as you want them to be. So go ahead and buckle up!
