What are Velcro Rollers?

Velcro rollers are a hair styling tool designed to add volume, lift, and soft curls to your hair without using direct heat. Instead, the heat from your freshly blown-dry hair is what sets these guys in motion. The less heat, the less hair damage! We love it.

Velcro rollers are covered with a velcro-like material that securely grips the hair, eliminating the need for pins or clips to hold them in place. Whether you have straight or wavy hair, long or short locks, Velcro rollers are versatile and suitable for all hair types. That being said, depending on your hair type, you may need to invest in pins or clips for extra hold.

As with any hair styling tool, it takes some getting used to individually. Don’t give up on them if your hair doesn’t turn out great the first time: keep practicing!

Why Choose Velcro Rollers for a Blowout Look?

Hair health. Unlike other hair styling tools that require the hair to undergo extreme heat, velcro rollers offer a gentle alternative, minimizing the risk of heat damage and promoting healthier hair.

Time-Saving. Creating a salon-worthy blowout can be time-consuming, but with velcro rollers, you can create similar results in a fraction of the time. Pro tip: Really save time getting ready by letting the curlers sit while you put your make-up on or figure out what you’re going to wear!

Versatility. Whether you desire bouncy curls or sleek volume, velcro rollers allow you to bring to life a variety of looks adapted to your preferred style.

User-friendly. Velcro rollers are easy to use; even for those with little to no experience in hair. Because of this, this makes them a convenient option for at-home and on-the-go styling!

Step-by-Step Guide to the Perfect Velcro Roller Blowout:

Step 1: Prepare Your Hair
Start with clean, towel-dried hair. Apply a heat protectant spray to shield your hair from any potential heat damage from the blowdryer. Choose a lightweight, heat protectant product that won’t weigh your hair down. We want voluminous locks, not a flat fringe!

Step 2: Section Your Hair
Divide your hair into manageable sections by first sectioning the middle part of your hair into a mohawk. Next, section off both sides of your hair. Secure each section with hair clips to keep the hair out of the way as you work.

Keep in mind, you’ll begin with a foundation of placing at least 4 curlers down your mohawk section. After those are placed, you can move on to the sides of your head. How many curlers you will apply to each side relies upon the length, amount, and type of hair you have.

Step 3: Choose the Right Size Rollers
Velcro rollers come in various sizes, and the size you choose will determine the type of curl or volume you achieve. For tight curls and more volume, opt for smaller rollers. For soft waves and gentle lift, larger rollers will be more suitable.

In the case of a blowout look, you’ll want to opt for larger curlers to achieve the bounce and volume that comes with a salon blowout.

Step 4: Dry, Roll, and Secure
Working with one section at a time, take a small segment of hair (around 1 inches thick) and comb it through to remove any tangles. Use a blowdryer to dry this section of hair. Fresh and hot, it’s now ready for a roller!

Position the velcro roller at the end of the hair section and roll it up towards the scalp, applying gentle tension to ensure a secure grip. Velcro rollers are purposed to stay in place on their own without the need for additional clips or pins, but as mentioned, this is a personal preference/requirement.

Step 5: Repeat and Set
Continue rolling each section of hair until your entire head is set with velcro rollers. Once all the rollers are in place, give your hair a light mist of hairspray for added hold and to set the style. Or, you can choose to add a spritz of hairspray to each section of hair as you roll it for even more hold.

Step 6: Let the Rollers Work Their Magic
The beauty of velcro rollers lies in that there are so many ways you can use them! Little curls, big curls — all the curls. Based on the look you’re going for, you can leave them in for as long or as short as you like.

For a more defined curl, leave them in for at least 30 minutes, or for a subtle lift and volume, 15 minutes will do the trick. Another way to play!

Step 7: Unroll and Style
Gently unroll the velcro rollers starting from the bottom, allowing the curls or volume to fall naturally. Use your fingers to softly tousle the curls and create your sought-after look. If you’d rather have a glossier finish, run a wide-toothed comb through the curls to soften them.

Step 8: Final Touches
To complete the blowout look, apply a small amount of hair serum or shine spray to accentuate dazzle and keep frizz at bay.

And there you have it: how to rock a voluminous, salon-worthy blowout without the need for professional styling!
