I am currently casting about for a different roller hair set. I try to wet set my hair at least once a week (which will last a few days) and I use hot rollers for the remaining days.
I’ve had an inch taken off the bottom of my hair at the back and wanted to try something to make my hair bounce up and look a bit like a 1950’s mid-legnth do. I generally use a standard pattern based on middle, side and back blocks of rollers but wanted to achieve more sweep at the front and bounce at the back.
I saw this set pattern over at The Pink Retro Powder Room blog and decided to give it a whirl. I love the fact that it shows the roller set required as well as the ‘permanent’ (perm) block.
I haven’t come across a set pattern that used both rollers and pin curls together.
My hair is a little longer than the beautiful model but I wanted to give it a go.
The first two rollers were placed by rolling under (the hair on top).
I couldn’t take any photos of the back (my photographers have finished their school holidays and are back at school) and I had to take my rollers out before picking them up….rollers in the hair and scarf upon the head isn’t appropriate pick-up attire, and will not a happy child make.
I think this set would work beautifully on above shoulder length hair, any longer and the weight of the hair drags the curl out. You can see that my hair is lifting quite nicely on the left side of this photo, where my hair is shorter…but the length at the back means that the shape is all wrong.
The quest for a new set pattern continues.
