How to use Foam/Sponge Rollers
This idea works for those special occasions, school delays, or date nights when you know you have the extra time to spare. You can also try sleeping with the rollers; however, keep in mind that it can be uncomfortable. Foam rollers come in different sizes, so it’s easy to create soft waves or curls with no heat. You can find foam rollers at many dollar stores or discount department stores for under $5.
- To maximize the foam rollers’ potential, get your hair damp with a little water or leave-in conditioning spray.
- Then apply a small amount of mouse, texturizing spray, or flexible hold hair spray. Separate your hair into small sections beginning with your bangs, and roll your hair onto the roller according to the directions found on the packaging.
- If you want waves, use medium-to-large rollers, and small-to-medium rollers for tighter curls.
- Let your hair dry completely before removing the rollers from your hair; this should take a couple of hours.
- When you remove the rollers from your hair, gently comb your fingers through the hair to loosen the curls.
You might even want to tease your hair at the roots for more volume.
- To finish the look, spray with flexible hold hairspray, and if you’re feeling up to it, wear a headband to accessorize.
Twisted Bun Method
An easy way to achieve soft-looking curls is to use a twisted bun method. Again you will need damp hair with a little hair product such as hair spray, mousse or texturizing spray.
Begin by parting your hair down the center, and secure one side of your hair with a clip or ponytail holder. Starting with your bangs on the other side, twist small sections of your hair, and then twist them into small buns. Secure them with a bobby pin, and go get some beauty rest; by the morning your hair should be dry. Unravel your twisted buns and gently shake your curls out to separate the strands. Tease your hair to create volume, throw on a headband, and spray with some flexible hold hair spray; now you’re ready for the day!
