- Hair spray
- Blow-dryer (optional)
- Velcro rollers (optional)
Prepare your hair
Start with hair that hasn't been washed for a day or two -- the curls hold better that way. Plug in your hot rollers.
Roll up the top
Starting with the hair on the top center of your head, closest to your forehead, wrap one-inch sections of hair around each roller, rolling it back away from the face, from ends to roots, and secure with a clip. Continue until the center strip of your scalp is done, like a Mohawk.
Wrap the sides
Wrap the hair on each side of your head, angling the rollers vertically to create spiral curls.
Gather bottom pieces
Use the remaining rollers on the bottommost layers of hair. Lightly spray your entire head with hair spray.
Wait until they're cool
Wait until the hot rollers are completely cool -- about 20 minutes -- before carefully removing them.
Gently arrange the curls with your fingertips; then freeze the desired style with hair spray. If the curls are too tight, run a wide-tooth comb through them to loosen.
