As awareness grows around the havoc that straighteners, wands and heated curlers can cause to our locks, care conscious consumers are turning to a more sensible styling staple. The shape of the curl you get from a more traditional roller is so different than that from the modern day wands & irons – the result is a much softer full curl. There is also something quite charming about meticulously winding each section of hair round a roller, only to unravel them into a tumbling mane of soft curls.
The fashion world started the trend, with session stylists spending much of SS12 Fashion Week rolling hair into sixties inspired up-do’s. However, as with anything, the trend can be taken a step too far. The stars of hit TV show Desperate Scouswives wore their rollers out and about on a recent trip to London. As much as we love our Goody rollers, we’ll stick to wearing them in private thanks.
