Hello 🙂 I wanted to do my own hair for my rehearsal and was wondering if anyone could recommend some nice curlers that you really like. I’ve tried a couple different sets from stores around town (Target, Walmart) – but they haven’t really given me what I was looking for.
My hair is pretty fine and doesn’t hold a curl all too well, but can with the right products. I’m looking for something that will give me a loose curl – and am willing to spend some money on them as long as they work! Also, ease of use would be great too since I need all the help I can get!
Any brands you girls could recommend?

I don’t know what the name of it is called, but during my hair trial my lady used steam curlers. The steam part was about the size of a large coffee cup and she would place each curler on individually as she was brushing my hair and then take it off and roll my hair up. I’d never seen such romantic curls that looked great pinned up and still had bounce when I took them down. I was so engrossed by it afterwards that I’ve decided to ask her where she bought it when she does my hair on the wedding day. The best thing about it was size, and you only heat up the curlers you need!

Richard Caruso moclecular curlers. They are likely what calicoteach mentioned above. They are amazing! They are steam heated, so less damage to the hair, and they hold like crazy. They are the ONLY thing that makes my baby fine pin straight hair take a curl. Do not be fooled by the 70s throwback style of the machine. I am awful at doing hair, but I can always make my hair look fantastic with these babies.

Oh! You have to add salt to the water to make it steam. I usually hoard those little salt packets you get at the deli and keep them with my Caruso machine so when I travel I have salt handy.
Enjoy! They are amazing!

To make the big bouncy curls that the salon makes, you need a bottle of mouse (I use Vidal Sasson), and hot rollers. I bought my hot rollers at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $24.99. You take a quarter size dollop of mouse and put it on dry hair. Then roll that section on a hot roller. After you are done rolling your whole head, you can begin unrolling with the first ones you put in. If the curls are too large for your liking, when you unroll it, split it into three pieces and re-roll each section around your fingers to sculpt it into a ringlet.
I hope that helps.
