Fun with hair styling!

I got my hair done about a month ago and went to Sally Beauty Supply afterward to get some shampoo. I decided to pick up some Velcro rollers while I was there. I've seen them used on TV shows and at hair salons and wasn't sure if they would work for me because of my thin hair but they worked great!

My hair had so much volume and looked so adorable (not that I'm trying to toot my own horn or anything). I've always had a hard time maintaining volume, but the trick with these is to dry your hair upside down and blow it straight if its wavy. Then use a curling iron close to the width of the rollers curl your hair, take it out of the iron and immediately wrap the hair around the roller and bobby pin it in place. After you have all the rollers placed, spray all over with hair spray and leave them in for 20 minutes or so.

If I knew how to "vlog" I totally would about this! I would also need a video camera so for now you'll just have to trust me that these little things do a great job. A pack of 6 costs around $4 and I got some that are about 3/4" since I have short hair at the moment. After taking them out I usually loosen up the curls gently with my fingers and then spray all over again!

I don't do this with my hair everyday because it takes a little time, but its a great alternative to straightening!

Do you have any fun hair tips?

So cute! I'm jealous because my hair is like a Brillo pad if I don't straighten it.
