How to effortlessly style beach waves this wedding season using hair rollers

The easiest way to achieve voluminous beach waves in just a few minutes!

Beach weddings offer a dreamy setting, and what better hairstyle to complement the coastal vibe than effortless beach waves? With the right technique and tools, like hair rollers, achieving those romantic waves becomes a breeze—chic and oh-so-relaxed. But how do you get those desirable waves without spending hours in front of the mirror? This is where hot rollers step in—the easiest way to achieve beachy curls without the hassle. Hair rollers are a game-changer in the world of hairstyling, offering a quick and convenient way to achieve beautiful curls without the need for excessive heat styling or endless hours spent with a curling iron. If you’re looking to give hair rollers a try, note that there are two different kinds available in the market—traditional velcro and heated rollers. 

Which hair roller types offer the best results?

The effectiveness of hair rollers depends on your hair texture, styling preferences, and the level of hold and longevity you desire. Traditional velcro rollers are ideal for those who prefer a gentler approach to styling. They work by gripping onto the hair without the need for additional heat, making them suitable for all hair types, including strands that are fragile or heat-sensitive. These hair rollers are perfect for creating soft, natural-looking waves with minimal effort. 

On the other hand, heated rollers are a great alternative for those seeking longer-lasting curls and added volume. These rollers are designed to generate heat, helping to set the hair in place more effectively. Additionally, these rollers are particularly helpful for those who have thicker or stubborn hair that requires extra hold to maintain the desired look throughout the day. What’s even better? They are also a time-saving solution for busy mornings or when you need to quickly change your hairstyle before an event. 

How can you achieve beach waves using hair rollers?

Prep your hair: Begin with clean, dry hair. If your hair is wet, ensure it’s thoroughly towel-dried to minimise excess moisture. We would recommend applying a heat protectant spray or a serum evenly throughout your hair, focusing especially on the lengths and ends as it shields your hair from the damaging efforts of heat styling by forming a barrier on the hair shaft. 

Select your rollers and section your hair: Choose the type and size of rollers based on the hairstyle you’re looking to try for your big day. Note that smaller rollers create tighter curls, while larger ones produce looser beach waves. Then, divide your hair into sections using clips or hair ties. 

Roll your hair and repeat: Start with a section of hair and comb through it to ensure it’s smooth and tangle-free. Place the roller at the end of the section and roll it up towards your scalp, winding the hair around the roller evenly. Continue rolling the rest of your hair in sections until all of your hair is in rollers. 

Allow your hair to cool down: Whether using heated or non-heated rollers, allow your hair to cool completely before removing the rollers as it helps in setting the curl, ensuring long-lasting results. 

Remove the rollers: Carefully unwind each roller from your hair. Avoid pulling or tugging on the hair to prevent frizz and maintain the shape of the waves. 

How to ensure your hairstyle looks its best and lasts as long as possible post-heat rollers?

Styling sprays play an important role in maximising the effectiveness of heat rollers. Once your hair is rolled, a light misting of hairspray can help set the curls in place, and ensure that they last throughout your wedding festivities. We would recommend looking for a flexible hold hairspray that won’t leave your hair feeling stiff or frizzy. Simply spray a small amount over the rolled sessions of hair, then allow it to dry before removing the rollers from your hair. This will help lock in the curl pattern and prevent them from falling out. For an extra strong hold, consider adding these hairsprays to your hair care regimen.
