How To Set Your Hair in Rollers

A Vintage Nerd

Want to know how to set you hair with rollers? Look no further. I typically use a type of rag roller but for my 1960's hairstyles I usually use my hard rollers. The rollers I have thankfully have some cushion to them but I am still working on easier ways to achieve 1960's hairstyles without sleeping with hard hair rollers. Any suggestions?

If you would like to learn how to set your hair in hard rollers, here are some diagrams to help you:

  1. That pretty pink hair tape is so cool! The fact that it has pinked edges just makes me adore it all the more. I wonder what brand (or brands) produced it?

    *PS* Your new blog design is fabulous!!!

  2. There are days when I regret not having long hair. For instance - right now. :) Watching these tutorials, I wonder what would it look like on my head? Would it suit my face (as good as short hair does)?
    I have had long hair many years ago. But, due to it's weakening I had it cut (I had it shaved this January.. bad way to start a year) - but I'm fine with it. Only, sometimes I let myself gasp while looking at such lovely images.
    I hope you don't mind, dear. ;)


  3. My mom used to use the pink tape all.the.time.

  4. Hair tape?! I've never heard of such a thing! That would be SO HANDY!
