Maybe you've tried magnetic rollers, bendable rollers, hot curlers, sponge rollers and more to get that perfect curl in your hair. Now you have yet another option to get those springy curls that are all the rage.

If you're not familiar with Curlformers yet, take a look at this detailed step-by-step. Not only will you see how to use them, you'll get tips to make the job of putting these curlers in easier and you'll get to see the spectacular results.

First, let's take a look at some of the different sizes of Curlformers (not shown are Short and Wide and Long and Wide). From left to right, there are two colors in each size:

  • Short and Narrow (blue and green)
  • Long and Extra Wide (yellow and magenta)
  • Long and Narrow (blue and green)
  • Extra Long and Wide (pink and orange)

You can purchase a Salon Kit which comes with 40 long and wide, six short and wide Curlformers and a hook. Other size Curlformers are sold separately so you can choose the amount and sizes you need.
