Battle of the Rollers, Part One – Caruso Hairsetter

In case you haven’t noticed, big hair is everywhere. Fashion runways, magazine covers, you name it. It’s all about VOLUME this season. (Hallelujah, by the way. I’m ready to give my flat iron a rest.)

I decided it was time to revisit my high school ways and bust out the rollers. I fondly remember the days of driving to school with 39 rollers in my hair, as I was the Hot Roller Master. However, that was, ahem, quite awhile ago. What changes have come about in regards to rollers? What kind of rollers are considered the best? I decided it was time to figure it all out, so I tried two best-selling sets, the Caruso Steam Hairsetter and the BaByliss Pro 30 Professional Hairsetter.

Let’s chat about the Caruso Steam Hairsetter today, shall we? I am loving on this super easy-to-use hairsetter. Just fill a little water into the reservoir (shown below), let the water heat up, place individual rollers on the stand for 5-10 seconds and roll into your hair.

Now, I have to say right off the bat when reading reviews about this product, a few people mentioned that they “just didn’t have the time to wait for the curlers to be steamed.” You all, that is pretty much the most ridiculous statement ever. It takes 5-7 seconds to steam an individual roller, which is less time than it takes to prep a section of your hair to be rolled. A helpful tip – place the roller on the stand, then section off and smooth the hair. When you are finished with prepping the section, the roller will be properly steamed.

Take small sections of hair and roll onto the roller. (Bonus – steam rollers aren’t wicked hot like ceramic rollers, so you don’t have to worry about burning your fingertips!) If you have layered hair, one of the best features of a sponge roller is that you can start in the middle of the hair shaft and roll around, instead of starting at the very ends. This was super helpful for me because nothing is worse than trying to roll your hair while shorter pieces are falling off the roller.

Continue rolling all the way to the scalp and clip the holder into place.

Once all the rollers are placed, leave them in for however long you want. I prefer to put on my makeup and catch up on very important US Weekly reading while waiting, which is give or take 10-20 minutes.

After the allotted time, carefully remove rollers without pulling on the hair. Here’s what the hair looks like directly after. I usually let a couple minutes pass before touching, and then I prefer to flip over, spray a little bit of hairspray and then run my fingers through the curls to separate and smooth.

Voilá! Bouncy, healthy curls that last and last. And remember since these are steam rollers, you don’t need to worry about the effects of heat styling. Truly loving this hairsetter, you guys.

    I so used Caruso steam rollers in highschool!!! Do you still have to add salt to the water? Your curls look fantastic… maybe I should reinvest in another set.

  • Gimmy

    November 8, 2010 at 10:49 am

    Wow, looks fantastic! I used to use steam rollers in college, but lost the thing in one of my many moves since. I loved it.

    Sign me up! No burned fingers alone would make it worth it. Not to mention it doesn’t seem to take up a lot of room.

    I can usually get this same look fro ma curling iron….buuut the heat is an issue—I’d wanna try the steam!

  • sarah

    Oooh your hair looks fabulous! I just recently cut mine and it’s now shoulder-length and very layered – i wonder how these would make my hair look…

  • Martha

    November 8, 2010 at 11:32 am

    Your hair makes me so jealous! How is it so SHINY? Looks like fun – my sisters and I still use my mom’s ancient (1960s) rollers and they work! She used to wake up at six in the morning to do her hair before school – a type of dedication that her daughters did not inherit.

  • Ines

    November 8, 2010 at 11:43 am

    Beautiful! i would love those!

  • Lindsey

    November 8, 2010 at 11:44 am

    This needs to be MY hair. I slave (nearly) every morning with the curling iron, and my curlers are the ceramic kind which require kevlar before touching. I neeeeeeed these.

  • Bethany

    November 8, 2010 at 11:44 am

    Really beautiful!! I would love a go at those rollers :)

  • Jody

    November 8, 2010 at 11:48 am

    Oh I’d love a set of these. I used a friends set last year while getting ready for a wedding and when I pulled the rollers out and out one of the girls said ‘Wow, you have barbie hair’ Which in my book, just may be the best complement ever.

  • kimberly

    November 8, 2010 at 11:48 am

    your hair looks beyond gorgeous. would love one of these!

  • Caroline

    November 8, 2010 at 11:50 am

    I love it!! You look so stunning! I love the look of rollers, but I feel I lack the skill and asbestos fingertips to deal with the rollers I once had. I usually spend a good chunk of time with a curling iron each morning, but you just don’t get the same bounce and hold from that.

    I’d never even heard of steam rollers before – thanks for the tip!!

  • Nicole

    November 8, 2010 at 11:53 am

  • Tammi Marie

    November 8, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    Pretty. I remember using the steam rollers that required salt. You are lucky though, your curls last and last? ha, my baby fine, bone straight hair doesn’t hold a curl well.

    I was just telling my stylist that I need to get a new set of hot rollers, as the ones I stole… er borrowed from my mom have finally died.

  • Amanda

    November 8, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    Intrigued! What exactly do you mean by starting in the middle of the hair shaft? I have layers and consistently give up in the middle of rolling. Thanks!

  • MCM

    November 8, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    This looks like a huge improvement over the spiky hot rollers I used in high school. I’d love to try it out!

  • keira

    November 8, 2010 at 12:58 pm

    I remember being 12 years old, watching the infomercial for these and wondering-could they possibly work? And when I got them for Christmas, they did! And then I promptly wore them into the ground. To get another set would be a pre-teen dream come true…

  • irene

  • Cass

    November 8, 2010 at 1:41 pm

    What a great idea! I still use my hot rollers from time to time but I really hate how hot they get. Hurts your fingers and usually makes me overheated when I wait for them to cool.

  • Roxanna

    Your hair looks gorgeous like that! I wish I could get mine to stay curly, but it falls flat pretty much 20 minutes after I take the curlers out! Keeping my fingers crossed that the Caruso will do a better job!

  • Jaclyn

    November 8, 2010 at 2:09 pm

    I am not talented in the hair roller usage department but these rollers make me think I should try again!

  • Kristin

    November 8, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Yea! I’m ready to give the flat-iron a rest, too! The hot roller phase was the easiest and quickest for me since I already have voluminous, curly hair. Let’s make this trend stay!!

  • Fatima

    November 8, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Wow, the result is amazing. I have regular hot rollers, but these look like they could work even better. Definitely need theseee!

  • Rhi

    November 8, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    OMG. I want to win this so badly. I’m not flat-ironing all over anymore because I was making my hair all straight and then putting it up in a pony tail. Now, I’m using a curling iron that I’m pretty sure I had in high school. So, I need these.

  • Rose

    November 8, 2010 at 6:18 pm

  • Mint

    November 8, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    I had this as a teen, and recall the only drawback was that the cover to the roller crimps my fine hair where it rests on my hair near my scalp. Any ideas on how to avoid crimping?

  • EBR

    November 8, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    I used to have one of these, then gave it away in a fit of “My hair will never be that long again!” bad decision!

  • Elizabeth

    November 8, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    I would love these! I have a set of hot rollers that I just broke out recently. I used to use them all of the time. It was so easy. Put the rollers in, do makeup, get clothes picked out. Take them out and hair was done! I have a friend that uses the Steam Rollers and loves them. I’d love to give them a try. I think your hair looks awesome like that!!

  • Melissa

    November 8, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    November 8, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    Yup, the Caruso’s rock. A friend of mine turned me onto them years ago – about 13 years ago actually – and I use them all the time. I need to get more rollers, though. My set came with three sizes: small, medium, and large. I prefer to use the large like you did. I’ve put away my flat iron for a good while as well now that I’ve noticed a ton of breakage in my hair due to heat damage. Waaa!!! Back to au natural and sleeping in french braids for me.

    I’ve tried traditional hot rollers, and those didn’t go very well for my hair. These would be really great to try!

    Did I mention I LOVE this look! :)

    I was just at Target yesterday looking for hot rollers. I thought I found something that might work, but thought I would check here to see you if there was a recommendation. Great timing. :) Steam looks like the way to go!

  • Frannie

    Thank you!! My hair has been utterly neglected as of late, and using a hot iron curler seems doesn’t do enough. Ah, I can pretend I’m a Victoria Secret girl!

  • Charlotte

    I’ve been lusting after these on Folica, but, for some odd reason, had absolutely no idea how they work (because I am apparently ridiculously slow). Hot rollers have always failed me, maybe these’ll do the trick?

  • Julia

    Wow! I was googling about hot rollers and then decided “I bet Sarah at Hair Thursday will have something about them” and BAM, this post is front and center!

    Thanks Sarah!

    I’m totally going to give this a try!

    That looks amazing! I’m in the process of growing out my hair JUST so I can do this to it. It’s an achingly long process, but I think I have about an inch or two left. I can’t wait!

  • Belinda

    I’ve tried several types of hot rollers to try and control the crazy that is my hair. Still haven’t found one that I’m happy with. The steam/sponge sounds like a good combo and should create less frizz.

  • Cameron

    Oh, I love how these turned out, I prefer the look you got with the Caruso rollers to the BaByliss ones. Although there is only a tiny difference – the Caruso curls do look a bit less frizzy. Count me in for the givaway!

  • Lucy M.

    November 10, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    no, way. That is so cool. I want these for 3 reasons: 1) my ceramic curlers just bit the dust 2) I strongly dislike burning my finger tips with my ceramic curlers AND 3) your hair look A-MA-ZING!

  • Jenn Bo

    November 10, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    I agree that the counter space issue would be awesome. I like that you can have just the size of roller that you actually use.

  • Estrella

    November 11, 2010 at 12:42 am

    WANT! I ordered an old Caruso steamer on ebay and it only lasted a day (I think I killed it by accident by leaving it on with no water in the reservoir.) The results I got were amazing and I’ve been wanting to get a new one (that I promise not to kill!) but the budget doesn’t currently allow for that.

    November 11, 2010 at 12:50 am

  • Rachelino

    November 11, 2010 at 11:55 am

    I would love to win a set of these rollers – the small footprint of the steamer is a huge plus compared to the clunky boxes of my sets growing up (let’s face it; borrowed my moms until I moved out and then never got a new roller set!) but I love that it’s not based on finger-searing heat. I am a baker and get enough burns already.

    I just, just, just bought a set of flocked rollers. :( I really like how they make my hair look but I didn’t realize how toasty they’d be to handle. This set could save my fingertips.

    Your hair looks so pretty! Loving the big, bouncy curls. I like that the Caruso uses steam, so you don’t get a lot of heat damage to the hair. I would love to try these.
