Stronger, Longer Hair Challenge
Have a roller set and are looking for some different styles? You’re not alone. Sometimes you want to mix it up a little bit and you get tired of just wearing your hair out.
Roller sets are great because they allow you to achieve straight bouncy hair without using direct heat (blow-dryer) and give your hair a break. You can sit under the dryer and whether you are relaxed or natural, you can pop out with straight hair.
There is so much versatility in roller sets. Check out some styles that work well with roller sets.
Pompadours have become popular again amongst relaxed and natural women! Since a roller set typically has body, this is the perfect foundation for a fly pompadour updo! Janelle Monae is a perfect example of a fab pompadour!
Directions: You need volume and texture for this (and bobby pins). Gather all of your hair to the front and create enough texture make a “poof” in the front. Secure and you’re good to go!
Half Up/Half Down
This is a classic style that works great with a roller set. It’s something easy and simple and gives you a chic classic look a la Beyonce.
Directions: Lightly backcomb your hair in the front and created a small hump-like shape from the front and secure.
Braided styles are coming back. While you can keep your hair out and curly, take the front of your hair and make a soft French braid.
Make a low ponytail with big curls. Take a brush or comb to smooth down the hair and use an elastic headband to secure.
Whatever style you do, you can preserve the smoothness and the curls that you achieved from the original roller set by not adding too much product and by not coming through and manipulating the curls. Work with the curls and the body, not against it.
