Is it weird that a man is watching this video?

Any tips for helping to prevent the curls from "dropping" after a day or so?
Katie V (1 month ago)
I take its best to add the lotion or whatever you have to slightly damp hair? Or dry hair? I have pomade but nothing like setting lotion
Moongem (1 month ago)
Kinda unrelated to this style of vintage, but the voice track in the music you used was in a song by a steampunk rock band I listened to when I was 13 and I just got strong flashbacks to middle school.

Lovin' this look 💋❤ but I need to know the color of your gorgeous hair?
itsjulia (2 months ago)
I tried this and I learned a few things about myself. Like I can't section my hair to save my life, and when I try to do things in a mirror my brain shorts out and don't know how to do things anymore 😂
Magdalena Flower (2 months ago)
I tried this and my curls came out waaaay to big and crooked... My hair is a bit longer, but still it should work?
M Chapman (3 months ago)
Ughh! So discouraged. Trying to do your style for a 40s play I'm in... Don't know if it's because I have long hair or if it's the product. I've tried this several times, and it's awful. I either brush the curl out or get waves that look exactly like the other waves in my hair. Brushing made it worse. Great tutorial, but you are a fortunate one! Your hair is pretty and cooperative, whereas mine is coarse, frizzy, and terrible. =...(

+M Chapman but setting lotion before !!

Plus, the creases left by the curlers ruin it further. SOMEBODY HELP MEEEE

pretty sure you can get that setting lotion at a Black hair beauty supply store in case you need to it local. Also check the ethnic hair section
Chloé Foglia élève (4 months ago)
Ok. Maybe, just maybe, this tutorial will be the one. Maybe I could actually get beautiful, manageable curls for once...
littlepinkskeleton (4 months ago)
For some reason, I really wanna know what song that was that played when she hairsprayed herself.
Cynthia Marquez (4 months ago)
Or you could get a perm
Rachel Maksy (4 months ago)
Perms aren't the same haha. Rollers set your hair in a very specific way so that when they're brushed out, they form the waves. Perms are more random

i hope my hair comes out like yours ;—;
babyblue904 (5 months ago)
Do you have to sleep with foam rollers in? I dont think i would be able to would a hairdryer on them after a few hours work?

I'm in love with your skin tone!! and the contrast it does with your deep red hair, looks vintagely gorgeous! 👌👍

What is your favorite brush brand to use? I see you use two types. What kind of bristles do they have? Thx!

Ahh thank you!! Kenra! 😊❤️

I wonder if it worked for me. I have really long hair
Antionia Owens (7 months ago)
Bless my grandma for having a BOATLOAD sponge rollers left from when she put them in my hair as a kid
Cosette Saul (7 months ago)
this is a 1950s not 40s. 40s had long and less curlier hair. smh
Rachel Maksy (7 months ago)
That's not true at all 😂 50's hair was much shorter and tighter curls. Look at any reference photo of 1940's hair and you'll see that they had long, fluffy curls. Even look at photos of Rita Hayworth. I do my research.
Scarlett R. (8 months ago)
THIS IS SO GORGEOUS! Can you tell us what sort of haircut do you have? The shape seems to make all your curls lay really nicely...my hair is all one length which I think might be my problem.
graleh (8 months ago)
How thick are these rolls in diameter? Where did you buy them? /Emelie fr Sweden
Rachel Maksy (8 months ago)
I'm not sure the measurements but they're the largest size in the pack I got! I got my pack from my local pharmacy!
SirParcifal (8 months ago)
I'm going to ask a stupid question: I have thick spiral curls - would I still have to put my hair in a certain curler to get this style??? LOL (*Yes I could be asking a stupid question!)
carly nicholls (8 months ago)
I slept in foam rollers last night. How do you do it soooo uncomfortable lol. Worth it tho but terrible night sleep. Love you love your videos. My fave utuber xx
Rachel Maksy (8 months ago)
Hahaha yup they're definitely not the most comfortable 😂❤️
Chiara Badini (8 months ago)
what is "foaming wrap lotion?" sorry but i can't find and any italian translation of this product
Chiara Badini (8 months ago)
+Rachel Maksy i understand what product do you used, but i can't find a translation for "foaming wrap lotion" to buy a similar product here in italy 💔
Rachel Maksy (8 months ago)
The product is "Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion", I'm not sure if it's sold internationally :(

ABSOLUTLY GEORGIOUS!!!! You are a hair GODDESS!!! IM SOO EXITED!! Just bought these sponge rollers and am going to try this evening! Thank you so much! <3
Johanna N.W (10 months ago)
I’m going to buy sponge rollers because obviously is the plastic ones too uncomfortable to sleep in. Thing is that they sell them 6 in each pack in the only story in my country who sells sponge rollers and i wonder how many i might need for medium long hair that is medium thick?
Karla Arteaga (10 months ago)
Did you put the lotion on all of your hair or just your bangs?
Rachel Maksy (10 months ago)
Every section of hair that I roll into curlers! ❤️❤️
Maria Brasileiro (10 months ago)
Te amo ♡♥♡♥♡
VeganVintageGeek (11 months ago)
In stead of a scarf you can use a hair net to help keep the rollers in, this works the best for me since a scarf slips off my head or a fabric sleep cap that is in the hair accessories/comb section of the store. I like the hair net especially in summer since it gets to hot wearing a scarf or sleep cap at night.
Rachel Maksy (11 months ago)
Oooo genius!
Abigail Stein (11 months ago)
First 5 seconds of the video and I’m already laughing. I only found your channel today but I’m already in love.

Heehee Ahhhh 🙈❤️❤️
Clair De Lune (11 months ago)
Do you know if this technique would work on a synthetic wig?
Clair De Lune (11 months ago)
I was thinking about trying to steam it into shape. I'm more worried about the brushing out part because in my experience synthetic wigs don't like to be brushed haha.
Rachel Maksy (11 months ago)
I don't think it would unless there is heat or steam involved. I believe you could roll them up and then hit it with a blow dryer or better yet, a steamer. I think once you do that there's no turning back though hahaha
cristina barberis (1 year ago)
<3 beautiful!
VamosLá (1 year ago)
I loooove your videos! I have a blast at how you talk and edit. So, I understood the hairspray name, but which kind please? They have so many types...thanks! 🙂❤
faeriesmak (1 year ago)
Oh no Rachel! Your poor eye ball! I have foam rollers but I also have almost waist length wavy, frizzy-frizzy hair. I think that my results would be much, much different from yours but it still looks Ike it would be fun to try.
MissCrane (1 year ago)
I've been browsing through a few hair tutorials and knew this was the one for me the second you showed Wilma! I was watching that movie last week and am obsessed with her hair! Love the video, I've just bought my first ever foam rollers and am going to try them out today

how big are the foam rollers you use?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I'm not sure the exact size but they're the biggest size in the pack I got, not sure if that's of any help 😂
Faithmeliz (1 year ago)
Where can I find a scarf / wrap similar to what you used?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I get most of mine at either thrift, vintage or antique stores! 😊 They usually have bins of them!
Giulia Faeta (1 year ago)
Super useful! I love it! I will try it out :)
So adorable, funny and usefull! Love it :)
Antonella C (1 year ago)
Hey I’m sorry you may have been asking this sooo many times, but what color do you use on your hair? Or is it your natural color? Thanks !!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Hehe no problem! I henna'd my hair a year ago so the base color is that natural ginger, but since then I've mostly been using an Auburn color from Revlon! I think I use the Bright Auburn or Medium Auburn 😊

Im going to try this but I have very long hair. Where do you buy your slips? I keep forgetting to ask you lol.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
+SuperMilas2 A couple people with long hair have tried this and sent me photos and it worked really well so I say go for it! I have a black one I got from Amazon and my white one is vintage from Etsy! 😊😊
Icey Cubes (1 year ago)
Just curious, do u do this everday? How long does the hairstyle usually last for?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
+정슬기 Nope! I usually only do this once or twice a week. The curls usually last a couple days if I don't re-roll them at night!
Do you know if I can use those rollers with a hair that is like 13inch long? I always watch this kind of tutorials (but yours, Im like super fan of them) but the hair that most of the girls have is like a medium/short hair and I don't wanna cut my hair just to have this beautiful kind of waves you know haha
thank you beauty!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
+Daphne Selegna Vázquez Yep!! A few people have tagged me in photos of their longer hair using this method and it looks amazing! I think the setting lotion is key to keeping the curls intact vs the heaviness of the hair! ❤️😊

Kitty in real life (1 year ago)
Here is me, quarter to midnight, doing my first ever foam roller curl attempt. Watch, pause, put in roller, repeat. Can't wait to see the mess I made in the morning! By the way I'm also using dollar store rollers and can't see so well with my glasses off.... Oh! And I have an undercut...not sure yet if that will help or hurt this endeavor. Lmao.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Heehehe you got this!!! Let me know how it turns out! :)
Celia Fodor (1 year ago)
This would never work for how long my hair is :( Love your hair though!
Celia Fodor (1 year ago)
The Pinup Companion I'll have to give it a shot then! I just have so much hair so I might need a lot of rollers lol
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
People have tagged me in results of trying with long hair and it turned out really well for them! ❤️

Sarah Martin (1 year ago)
Perfect! Thanks for sharing this. I still haven't got myself to retry pin curls, but I freakin love foam rollers, so this will be a happening thing. Your hair looks great and I love the go with the flow, brush, and tease of this hair style. Seems just right for my randomly moody hair.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Thank you so much lovely!! Pin curls don't even work on my hair anymore so foam rollers are always my safe bet hahaha ❤️

め美里桜 (1 year ago)
does it also work with long hair? btw i love your pale skin :D
め美里桜 (1 year ago)
thank you for your reply. first time and it didn't work. guess the roller were too big or my hair to wet or to long? gonna buy smaller ones :)
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Yep! I've seen quite a few people try this with long hair and it looks beautiful! Thank you love!
puddy_in_the_hall (1 year ago)
Do you  use setting lotion on your whole hair? And is it necessary if you just want looser, bigger curls?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I do! The size of the rollers would be what defines the size of the curls, the setting lotion mainly just makes sure that they stay curled throughout the day! If you don't mind the curls falling into waves then I'd say don't worry about the setting lotion too much, but make sure your hair is either wet or damp, otherwise it won't curl the hair ❤️
Stefaneedee (1 year ago)
Do you think there is a rule about hair length when going vintage? It seems like there was definitely a certain length that everyone followed. Your thoughts?
Stefaneedee (1 year ago)
Thanks for taking the time out to reply! Love your channel, keep up the great work
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I don't think so! I've seen some really gorgeous long-hair styles and amazing pixie cuts too! 😊
Kim Hahn (1 year ago)
Rachel I noticed your accent is so different from normal in this video...?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Hahaha is it? I didn't realize I even have an accent to begin with 😂 I had a cold in this so maybe it's how nasally I sound?
aasigraa (1 year ago)
once I put a brush on it, my hair looks electrocuted :'( ..... I never get those nice shiny vintage curls/waves, I can brush for 2 hours. Or it's one frizzy mess, or the curl is pulled out.
A. Neufeld (1 month ago)
+Rachel Maksy Hey Rachel, I don't know if you'll see this, but I recently tried a curl setting lotion I made myself using boiled flaxseed + water, which creates a weird gel. It actually worked really well, it's odorless and cheap, and lasted me two days! I was wondering if maybe you could try it out on video? I haven't seen anyone else on YouTube try it yet :) Love your channel!
Cyran Martin (3 months ago)
There's also a lighter hold product called brilliantine. Makes hair super shiny! Yardley London has one that smells divine and is rather cheap. And the packaging is to die for

Run a mix of pomade and argan oil serum through the tips of the hair up to the base of the crown it should settle down

The rich auburn curls are so lovely! I can't believe you can do the colouring and the foam rolling so consistently by yourself! I can't even part my hair properly lol
keepmecute (1 year ago)
you are stunning!!! I'm so happy I've found your channel. I've been wanting to switch to a more vintage style for a while now. my grandmother used to use those same rollers at night. and your personality is just bomb!! you go girl!!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Ahh thank you so much beautiful!!!
Ginny Stewart (1 year ago)
I tried this and I look more from the 80s than I do the 50s😂 Struggles of having long hair😂 It's still a great tutorial though!
jan ne (1 year ago)
Ginny Stewart haha same here, it looks crazy!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Hahaha awww, try brushing it out a bit more to make it more wavy! I totally get the "Dirty Dancing" hair a lot so I gotta spend a few extra minutes brushing 😂

I've recently found your channel and I'm in love with it bc I love the 20s,30s,40s,and 50s and I'm so happy I found this video bc I've always wanted to do this hair style and idk what else to say except for you're funny and thank you for sorta helping me find my style lol anyway later |-/

Alatier (1 year ago)
Thank you for sharing this, it is a great help. I finally mustered my courage and had a go. I need to track down some setting lotion, but wanted to have a play with the rollers and some water. Wow...this is quite tricky for someone who does not normally play with hair. Let's see what tomorrow brings...according to my husband the scarf looks very vintage on my head....maybe I should keep wearing that instead of checking how things turned out? oO Made me realise I need a haircut though...how do you tame fly aways? Yours looked lovely and neat. ^^
markfcksdogs • (1 year ago)
I love your videos you are awesome! :D But I have a question; I have naturally curly, poofy hair. Can I put these things in after washing my hair or do I have to straighten my hair before? I hope you or someone else can help me with it although you have to deal with another hair structure than I do. ^^'''
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Thank you love!! You should be able to just use them with your natural textured hair! The rollers will reform the curl as the hair dries 😊 I reccommend using a setting lotion for double security though!
Mrs.Blackie Lawless (1 year ago)

Even her house looks like it...i aspire to be more like Rachel...in a me/Shawnie kinda way...lol... Who needs to admire movie stars when theres Rachel!(and a few other vintage youtubers(including 2 non vintage) and vintage instagramers(and a few non vintage!) I dont enjoy watching the more "fake" social media and holywood peeps, i like the real people like Rachel. Anywhooooooo... I adore your haaair! Keep up the fab job girlie!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Heehee 😊😊
Does this work in naturally curly hair? I normally look like a 1980s hot mess...
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I think so! I think once you moisten the hair with setting lotion, it'll 'reset' the curls into the shape you want them!
Alyssa jade Butlin (1 year ago)
What a gorgeous foam roller set... as a guy with longer hair , I can say that I heave never done a foam Roller set however I so do regular wet sets using brush rollers or Velcro rollers and either a soft hood dryer or a pedestal dryer . I believe in doing what makes me comfortable and not necessarily what society expects of me , my fascination with rollers and roller sets started as a young child as i would watch my mother roll her hair with great intrigue and fascination.. I love your roller set.
faeriesmak (1 year ago)
Lance Butlin I tried Velcro rollers and could never get them to work for me!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
That's seriously awesome, go you!! I'm all about breaking societal views. Everyone deserves to have beautiful bouncy hair so who cares what anyone thinks, hahaha. Yeah you should try the foam rollers! They're a bit hard to sleep on but the curl they give you is undeniable ❤️😊

Sarah A (1 year ago)
The Pinup Companion thank you!!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Sarah A Yes!! Depending on how thick the hair is will determine how much can fit around the roller and be curled, but the bottom half (if not more) will have a really pretty curl!! Very Veronica Lake 😊❤️❤️

You're absolutely rocking this hairdo! It does look like a lot of work though.. How long does it usually take you to do this per day and how long does it last? (also with washing your hair and such) I can imagine you doing this every single day for a perfect result like this :o
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Thank you love! It usually takes me around 10-15 min to put them in rollers, then 5-10 in the morning to brush it out :) I take a shower every other day so it's tough for me to say how long they last, but I've gone a few days without washing my hair and they fall to a really pretty wave after the first day. I only end up doing this a couple days a week, cuz I'm usually so tired in the morning at 6 am, hahaha.
