Hot rollers have been around for ages and come in many varieties, such as the soft rollers of yesteryear that had to be left on while your hair naturally dried. There are so many rollers out there; it's hard to know where to begin. Right now, the trend is all about loose flowing curls with lots and lots of volume. That look is best achieved with large hot rollers.
Heat them up first, then roll in hair and leave for 10 to 20 minutes, or apply them cool and blow dry over hair to heat them up. When looking for hot rollers, ionic rollers work well, as they change color based on temperature, so you know when they've cooled and can take them out.
