As part of our skills and techniques for semester two, we have been learning to do hair. In our lessons we were shown how to set hair using different heated appliances. We first learnt how to set hair using the BaByliss Pro 30pc Roller Set. We were first shown how to section the hair prior to the rollers being put in as well as being sown how to put the rollers in properly. By learning how to put in a basic set using heated roller, you are able to create texture to the hair as well as giving lift at the roots and enabling you to create many hair styles, as once you have done this all you need is some hairspray, a backcombing brush, a fine tooth comb with a pointed end and some hair grips and you’re away! Being able to use hot rollers is a good skill to have for all area of make-up artistry, weather you are working in TV, Film, Fashion or Theater. Below are some pictures showing how to put in a basic set. As you can see the hair has been sectioned, by doing this it enable you to put the rollers in precisely and neatly ( sectioning the hair will be different on everyone’s hair depending on how much or little they have). When putting the rollers in for a basic set make sure you apply setting spray or hair spray to the piece of hair that is going into the roller a swell as a little at the root as this will help the hair set into a curl and last, but also helps give extra lift at the root. Once you have applied spray to the piece of hair roll the hair downward ensuring that you get all the hair in and pin in place by using a U shaped pin. After you have put the roller in leave them to cool ( TIP: wait until the last roller you put in is cold as the longer you leave them in the better the curl will be). Once cool start to take the roller out I usually start at the bottom and work my way up as it stop all the hair from tangling. Now that all the roller out you are now free to create any hair style you want.
