Remember seeing your mother walking around the house with a head full of pink rollers? Fortunately, we have come a long way since then. Instead of leaving those ancient curling devices on our heads for hours, now we get the same (if not better) curls in a fraction of the time with heated rollers. If you spend hours scrolling through TikTok, you know the magical power of hot rollers for giving you Victoria's Secret-worthy waves and curls at home. We are not ready to abandon our flat irons and curling wands because they can create a range of beachy waves, but the hot rollers can give you luscious curls with volume with less heat damage, though they can have a mind of their own. The kind of curls you get will depend on the size of the rollers. You are surely less likely to burn yourself with these.

How do we pick the right one with so many choices out there? According to hairstylist Anthony Nader, the best-heated rollers have a velvety-smooth covering over the metal. He told Byrdie, "These don't leave indentation marks on hair strands like older style rollers." Another helpful tidbit is getting a set of hot rollers with different sizes, so you aren't limited to just one curl size all over your head (via Glamour).

Hot rollers create voluminous Old Hollywood glam in minutes

If you are wondering how to curl the hair in the front, Ashley Graham's hairstylist David Lopez told Refinery29, "It's important to roll the hair at the crown back, so it falls and blends into the rest of your style." Doesn't that make life easier now? Bring on those hot rollers.

If you want serious volume, T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe is your best bet (via Cosmopolitan). With its HeatCore Technology, there is zero frizz and high shine on your bouncy curls. It also works perfectly for every hair type. For those looking for a slightly more affordable option, Byrdie recommends the Conair Compact Multi-Size Rollers. It's easy to use and great for beginners too. When you need to rush out the door but still want to look glamorous, Women's Health suggests using Remington Pro Hair Setter with Thermaluxe because they heat up in 90 seconds and curl your hair super-fast but may not work flawlessly for fine hair. Too much heat can be highly damaging. Therefore BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Roller Hairsetter is an excellent pick because it uses infrared heat to curl hair without causing damage (via Marie Claire).

Don't leave those hot rollers on for longer than recommended. Once they are done, just use some hairspray or texturizer before gently running your fingers through your gorgeous curls, and you are good to go.
