When it comes to glamorous hairstyle looks, one of my favorite hairstyles is soft, bouncy waves.

Plus, it helps to minimize frizz by smoothing the hair cuticle.

The Benefits of this Easy Hairstyle
Whether you have fine hair, wavy hair, or even dry or damaged hair, the best part about this hairstyle is that it’s easy to create and is actually healthier for your hair. Because it only requires 3 simple products (a flat brush, a hair oil, and hot rollers), it couldn’t be easier to do. And the best part is – it will save you so much time because it lets you multi-task even while your hair is setting in the rollers. So, if you’re a busy professional or parent, you’ll love how time-saving and convenient this hairstyle technique is.
90s Supermodel Inspired Hairstyle Tutorial
STEP 1: Brush your dry hair straight with a flat brush. This will help to detangle and smooth the hair follicle.
STEP 2: Apply a small amount of moisturizing hair oil (I’m a fan of this lightweight, yet hydrating, hair oil) all over your hair, starting from the mid-shaft through the ends. Make sure to evenly coat the strands of hair, so that it smooths the cuticles. This will help your hair look shinier, healthier, and will also help to protect it from heat damage.
STEP 3: Using hot rollers, taking small sections of hair (starting with the crown and front sections), roll the roller up on a horizontal angle, and secure with a roller pin. Allow the rollers to set in your hair for 5-10 minutes. Then unroll each section, allow the hair to cool for 1-2 minutes, and then tousle with your fingers. This will help to separate the curls (making them look more natural), and will help to add volume and fullness to your hairstyle.
Why Hot Rollers are An Essential Beauty Tool
I’ve been using hot rollers since I was a kid (when my mom used to style my hair). While curling irons and flat irons have become popular in recent years, one of the main reasons why I still love hot rollers is that it tends to be gentler on the hair. This means that there is less heat styling damage, which can result in dry, brittle, or porous hair. Not to mention – when the rollers are setting, your hands will be free to do other activities (like applying skincare or makeup), so it’s a great time-saving tool, especially on busy mornings.
