  1. 1

    Shampoo your hair.

  2. 2

    Apply your choice of a setting product. The setting product is used to ensure your curls last. Depending upon your preference, setting lotion, setting spray or mousse can be used. Typically, a dime-size portion of product provides a great hold for medium-length hair.

  3. 3

    Part your hair in the direction you wish your hair to be styled. The basic style uses a Mohawk part down the middle of your head, with two rows on both sides of the head. The section of parted hair must be the same width as the roller. Begin at the front of your hairline.

  4. 4

    Comb through the section of hair that is ready to roll, with a fine-tooth comb. This ensures the hair doesn't have any tangles and will lie smoothly against the roller.

  5. 5

    Pull your hair upward. While it is taunt, wrap the ends of your hair onto the roller and begin to roll towards your scalp.

  6. 6

    Attach a hairpin to the roller. To ensure the roller is on tightly, insert the pin at the top of the roller. pushing inward towards the scalp and coming out on the other end of the roller so that the pin rests against the scalp.

  7. 7

    Continue rolling each section per the above steps. Once you have completed the setting, you may either let your hair dry naturally or sit under a dryer.
