Do any of you ladies set your hair on rollers/curlers?

The wash & wear syles are so popular these days. Do any of you ladies prefer a more "finished" look? By that I mean set on rollers, dried under a dryer, a fancy comb-out, and heavy coat(s) of hairspray to lock your " 'do" in place.

  • I honestly have to just settle with using a curling iron.
    Whenever I tried rollers - about 3 times, my hair would be CRAZY. I don't know why, but it didn't look finished. It looked more like.. Bozo the Clown got his hair electrocuted. :[
    But now, I just can be assed to do anything but let my hair do it's own thing. I'll put smoothing spray in, and brush my hair out, but that's about it. It's almost always in a ponytail anyway so... *shrugs*

  • I've been trying to use curlers these days, and I can never get my hair right, it's either too curly or not curly enough! I have straight long shiny hair, with layers, but I just need volume really.

  • MommaRox - dry you hair while you're head is tipped down towards the floor, and blast the roots.

  • I use an ionic curler--electric.
    My hair is fine, but there is a lot of it.
    Kinky/curly hair with lots of split ends, but the curlers help me. I lost some curl during childbirth, so it's now straighter, but the curls give it volume.

    Everyone's hair is different

  • Ladies, OP here:

    I would suggest making an appointment at an "old fashioned" beauty shop. Those gals know so much more about how to make those sets come out right than the young girls at most salons. And they are SO MUCH FUN to get!!

  • Yeah, OP, I agree. A girlfriend an I have a regular Saturday morning apointment at one of those old-fashioned shops. We get really nice, dressy hairdos and then go out for lunch! We have a gas doing that. Oh, and our hair looks really dressy and perfect for church the next day, too!

  • What city are you in, K? I'm pretty good at finding them in other towns (I travel a lot for my job). Maybe I can find one for you!

    If you're not comfortable giving your town, just give me your state. I'll try to find one in every corner of the state for you.

  • You can also go to the local beauty school. The students get really, really good at roller sets! When I went we charged $10 for them, so even if it comes out bad you don't feel guilty for washing it out!!!
