Battle of the Rollers, Part Two – BaByliss Hairsetter
Battle of the Rollers part one here.
After trying the Caruso Hairsetter, I decided it was time to give the BaByliss Pro 30 Professional Hairsetter a spin. The BaByliss rollers are similar to what I’ve used in the past – heated rollers that create curl. This set includes 30 rollers: 6 small (3/4″), 8 medium (1″), 8 large (1 .25″), and 8 Jumbo (1.5″). I mainly used the jumbo size, but ran out and had to use the large on the bottom section of my hair. As for the unit itself, I liked how these rollers were double insulated – they fit down into the the casing, which helped to maintain temperature.
I rolled my hair in the same fashion as I did with the Caruso rollers. The one thing I noticed right off the bat is that I couldn’t take as much time rolling each individual section as I did with the Caruso. Holding these rollers for longer than a few seconds was uncomfortable due to the heat, so it made my rolled sections a little less perfect.
Notice the tissue on the right side. I forgot how hot rollers can burn your ears!
I left the rollers in until they cooled, removed, sprayed with a bit of hairspray and separated the curls in the same manner as the Caruso hairsetter review. Here was the result.
The curls were fairly similar to the Caruso, methinks. (Although the BaByliss rollers seemed to leave a little more frizz. You can see it on the left side of the above photo.)
