Before we dig in, please check those preconceived hair notions at the door. You might think hot rollers are from your grandmother’s era, but they have also produced some of the most sought after manes in the modern world!
Take hair goddess Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge. Reports suggest she uses them and they’re my secret weapon for camera-ready hair too. After trying all kinds of styles, products and methods over the years while anchoring and reporting, I can finally say my good hair days outweigh the bad. Hot rollers can do the same for you!
My hair has a bit of a natural wave to it and is super thick. If it’s misting out or is a hot summer day, it gets wild and frizzy in a hurry. Put that on HDTV and… instant nightmare. No one wants breaking news from Cousin Itt, right?
Hot rollers smooth your tresses while providing controlled volume.
There’s no doubt hot rollers can take some getting used to but—I promise—they are worth it. This is the set I use; it’s inexpensive and ideal for those with long hair. I truly believe getting camera-ready doesn’t need to be pricey. My video tutorial above will walk you through the process. You can find more detailed instructions below.
