Hair 101: Marilyn Monroe Curls

Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe's hair was always perfectly coiled into big, bouncy curls that look super soft. Of course they did not have a million flat iron and curling iron options back in Marilyn's day so the next best thing was the roller set which is actually much better for the hair compared to a hot tool. However in this time when a roller set is mentioned a person's brain immediately thinks of a poodle-like hairdo or an old lady, but there are lots of ways to prevent that from happening. Learn how to get beautifully curls with lots of body and bounce just like Marilyn's with these tips!
  • Don't use too small rollers! Large or medium size rollers work best for creating looser curls.
  • Never use a brush or comb on the curls, finger combing is best so that frizz is prevented.
  • Make the rollers go a little sideways to prevent all the curls from flipping under and/or upwards.
  • Make sure you wait for the hair to cool off before removing the hair rollers.
  • Let the curls fall on their own a bit before using in hairspray or lots of finger combing.
One of the newer roller set kits I have seen would have to be the Conair Xtreme Instant Heat™ . I have never used the product personally and I am not sponsored or affiliated by Conair, but I can say I have see many videos of people using the product and lots of positive reviews. These hot rollers are for girls on the go which is pretty much every girl.

Try out the Marilyn Monroe curls ladies!
