How I Style My Hair


Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.One of the most asked questions I get is ‘how do you fix your hair?’. While I am not going to pretend to be a hair expert, I will share with you all how I personally do my hair and what I have found that works for me.Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.These are the only things you need…well besides hairspray (I use this kind), to get that ‘Big Texas Hair’…a.k.a. Volume & Curls! I have found that this blow dryer does the trick FAST and these rollers (the 5 pack is my favorite because it doesn’t take up a lot of space) are the best. Yes, the blow dryer (update: I now have THIS dyson hair dryer) is a bit on the expensive side but trust me girls, it’s worth it!

Now before you begin rolling your hair, blow dry your hair normally. For me, I let my hair air dry as LONG as possible and then run a blow dryer on it for like 3 minutes. If I am in a hurry I blow dry the second I get out of the shower so I can get my hair in rollers ASAP and do my make up while my hair ‘sets’ (it’ll make sense one you get to the end of this post). I also use this brush but I’ve never been picky about brushes.

Ok, now…Step One:Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Pull hair half up/half down and divide the bottom second into two parts.

Step Two:Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Start from the bottom of your hair and roll the hair ‘over’ the hot roller. Basically roll the roller around the hair until you have rolled all the hair and the hot roller is now against your head. Clip and move onto the other second on the bottom half of the hair.

Step Three:Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Now for the ‘top half’. Divide the side heavier side of your hair in two (the side with more hair). The heavier side is the side that gets ‘two rollers’. Repeat Step Two on how to roll a roller. After you put the two rollers on the heavier side, put the last roller on the ‘light side’Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Major Key Alert: for your front piece of hair, go the opposite now you are rolling the hair ‘under’ the roller. See below. Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Step Four:Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.Spray your hair with hair spray (I use this brand in the medium finish). Now, let the rollers ‘set’ until they cool. I usually wait like 7 minutes on days when I am in a rush and when I have time I usually let the hot rollers set for up to twenty (while I do my make up).

Step Five:Amy Havins shares how she uses hot rollers to style her hair.All you have to do now is unclip the clips and the hot rollers just roll out!

Step Six: Run hands through hair to separate the curls and blend the hair and just like that you are ready to go…with that Big Texas Hair!

I also did this post earlier in the week on my summer haircare favorites (click here to see the post). Let me know if you have anymore questions! xx

***the set of hot rollers that I use does NOT come with these clips. I have these clips left over from an old set I used in high school but if you want the clips I use, you can purchase THIS set of hot rollers to get the clips. frustrating, I know but that is the only way to get them!**

    Good Afternoon,

    I noticed that you use different hot roller clips than what comes standard in the Conair hot roller kit you linked to in this post. What clips do you use, if you don’t mind me asking? I’ve never been able to find great hot roller clips that don’t leave “crimps” in my hair after I remove the hot rollers.


  2. Your hair always looks so great!!! My sister in law and mother in law swear by hot rollers and I have tried and tried again and they always fall. BUT I am determined to make it work for me because they’re so easy and practical!! Love this tutorial!!
