A lot of ladies will go to great lengths to get perfect loose waves, whether with a curling iron, by sleeping in braids or even perming. I can’t count myself as one of them because of my super-short hair, but even if I can’t partake I can share alternative ways to achieve the holy grail of hair. The latest one I’ve come across is Spoolies, and let’s just say they’re a far cry from your mom’s hot rollers.
Inspired by curlers of yesteryear—but updated with super-resilient silicone and patented technology—these curlers are easy to use and gentle on your hair. Simply select the size that’s best for your desired curl (we suggest the Jumbo for loose, beachy waves), wind your hair around it and flip the cone over. They stay put without the need for pins or clips, and you can use them on wet or dry hair. If you’re going heat-free, just let your hair dry naturally, or you can speed up the process with a blowdryer.
They’re available in a variety of colors—including glow in the dark!—and this video explains how you can achieve a variety of looks ranging from loose waves to pin-curls. So if you’re looking for a way to get great style without damaging your strands, Spoolies are definitely worth a try!
