Heated rollers aren’t anything new.
Our mums used them in the ‘90s to achieve Cindy Crawford-level curls and bounce, and they made a quick resurgence in the early ‘00s.
But now Gen Z has fallen in love with them and are bull rushing TikTok with documentation of the unexpected love story.
While a couple of brave volunteers are pulling out their mums' original retro sets for the sake of this trend, many TikTokers have opted for more modern options with 21st century innovations (ceramic-plated rollers anyone?).
Big, voluminous, soft and shiny-looking curls in just 20 minutes, or alternatively overnight for those using older heated roller models.
Still don’t believe a set of hot rollers could beat your trusty curling wand? Think again.
According to a number of TikTok’s beauty trendsetters, you’ll want to chuck your Dyson Airwrap on Facebook Marketplace after trying out heated rollers, which are cheaper and easier to use.
