Hi, I'm Amelia Smith, and I'm here to talk to you about how to use hot roller pins. For this clip, you'll need a styling comb, your rollers and roller pins. We all know them, they're the strange shaped pin that comes with your hot roller set. Ideally, when you purchase hot rollers, they're now making them with alligator-type clips, and those are really the best kind to get because these can be a little on the flimsy side, but I'll show you how to use them. Make sure that you comb out your hair, pull out your section, comb it out. Take your roller, converge this strand, pull it all the way up and roller it down, and then, depending on how that roller is facing, is how you apply the pin. Like, to the front, you're going to want to put the pin in the front, and that way it doesn't rock forward. If you are on the side, you're doing the sides of your hair, you kind of put it in at an angle, and again that helps to kind of anchor it in there. So, just make sure that at whatever angle you are trying to put in, it's going to not, it's going to not let it roll. So, let me think, if there's another angle I could show you. We'll go this way, vertically. And a vertical, when you roll it vertically, it's going to give you those longer curls. So, you just want to kind of push that in, almost like you would a bobby pin, just from the front to the back. And, if need be, you can even, kind of, bend your pins a little bit to make them tighter, because over time they will start to stretch out. So, just keep an eye on that, and if they're a little bit more snug on the roller, your roller won't move. And that's how you use roller pins.
