Also I promise Frodo isn't trying to hump the pillows, lol. That's what we initially thought too, but it's not the case. I'm not gonna explain what dog humping looks like but it isn't quite as aggressive and spread out, hahaha. It's purely because he wants to get comfy and will even do a little victory lap once he finally manages to knock a pillow off the couch before he snuggles up. 😂

I know this video is kinda old but could you maybe try doing one of these styles on someone with type 4 hair🤗🤗

Good. I am glad he is not trying to hump the pillows, because it really looks like that is exactly what he is doing.

I have just over shoulder length hair. How many would I need to do a full head. 20 ?

will this hair style work for medium to long hair?
How long does it take to curl your hair? I have thick curly hair myself! Looks great!

Could you possibly demonstrate how to get this look from shorter hair? I know i probably don't need to roll the pillow rollers as high on my head cause i have a bit less than shoulder length hair so the curls spring way up to my head when i did this. The brush out wouldn't look so bad if i didnt look like one of the three stooges afterwards.

I had no idea these existed before watching this! This method is brilliant for my stubborn long hair, thank you for making this video!

does that work in curly hair? love your channel btw

I find that these work better for my thick hair too. Foam rollers always made my hair look greasy, especially on the second day.

Watching people put actual effort into getting their hair curled actually makes me glad that I can wet mine and it does that!

What a transformation!!! From straight, boring to super GLAM! I have long, wavy hair and want to do something to accentuate all this hair, and was looking to purchase these rollers and you have sold me on them.

PEOPLE WHO USE ROLLERS! Which do you guys feel is the most comfy to sleep in, foam rollers or pillows rollers? Or are they about as equally uncomfortable as each other, lol. I currently use bendy rollers, as they're all I can find locally, and those things are pretty darn hard and uncomfortable to sleep in.
Elise Welber (3 months ago)

I love the soft rollers. I have a bunch and have shown my daughter (14 with twice your hair and mine) how to use them. They are awesome. Thank You for showing these off.

Okay but you used the song ‘What is a Youth’ for like a few seconds, and I thought I was the only one who knew of its existence. It is such a beautiful tune.

Just tried this and I will say it turned out amazing! I didn’t feel like it was that much extra work. Plus I love that it’s more of a effortless none heat option. Thank you for the video! P.s. love your humor. 😄
kerryisfly (5 months ago)
I've been doing this set every day for a week and it has seriously changed my life (queue angelic choir and footage of heavens parting). I've had these rollers for a while and have been too scared to use them because they're so small but this method totally rocks. I feel super pretty and have gotten tons of compliments. Thank you!
Abigail Horner (5 months ago)
I use brush rollers but these look so much easier... And your dog is trying to violate the pillows but he doesn't really know what he's doing

Can pillow rollers work on really long hair?
Harriet Lucy Black (6 months ago)
My dog does that too with the pillows. He'll throw all of them off the couch and sit there proudly. And if i put the pillows back too soon he gets upset and won't talk to me for hours. Anyway, nice tutorial, and very nice hair. I actually handmade my own pillow rollers after watching this video and it's working really well for me, so thanks!
Beth Pearson (6 months ago)
Quick question on this year old video lol. How do you not brush out the curls? I wet set with foam rollers and the next morning when I brush out I just end up with straight hair again. 😭😭
Beth Pearson (6 months ago)
The Pinup Companion thank you! I tried just regular gel that my son uses lol. Just weighs it down though. I’ll try the brand you used. Thanks again! Stay sweet!
Rachel Maksy (6 months ago)
The setting lotion helps keep the curls in tact!
Sage Lilleyman (6 months ago)
Recently found your channel Rachel and I love it so much! xoxo Btw... I think your doggy was attempting to hump those pillows! haha...
Rachel Maksy (6 months ago)
Thank you love!! Haha I know it looks like it but he's not humping, he's trying to throw the pillows off the couch, he hates them 😂
Heather Culver-Teubert (6 months ago)
When you do your curlers and brush them out and style, do you do it every night or do you do something special to keep your curls overnight?
Rachel Maksy (6 months ago)
If I want my curls to stay formed the next day, unfortunately I do usually re-roll them. Sometimes I'll just sleep on them directly and the next day it gives it a more wavy, 1940's look, but definitely not the same curl structure!

Question do I need my hair to be damp before I put the mousse?
Rachel Maksy (8 months ago)
Nope! My hair has to be completely dry before I use my setting lotion or it won't dry, so it just depends mostly on how your hair dries! ❤️

So, I know this is an old video, but I'm sort of binge watching all of your videos I've missed and catching up. These rollers look amazing! Definitely going to try them out, since I have fine hair that tears easily and there is nothing for it to get caught on with these. Not to mention, your hair turned out super cute.

beautiful ! <3
Elise haverstick (9 months ago)
I swear by these things to make my hair curl. I've gone through about 4 packages of these over the past few years. Its so weird to see them without a purpley blue tint though, they look so clean and pretty!
TheJimmymcjimjim (9 months ago)
My mom's dog does the same thing! She's like "GET OFF OF MY COUCH" and will even yell at the pillows out of sheer "GO AWAY" if she can't successfully fling them onto the floor.
TheJimmymcjimjim (9 months ago)
She's a kelpie mix so it looks like Dobby is just...WILDLY displeased by pillows whenever this happens.

Your hair takes an eternity to dry, too? Mine only gets dry enough to be damp after 4 hours. 😭

I'm new to your channel and I absolutely love it! Anyway I was watch this video and you showed Frodo on the couch. That couch is the exact one that I'm about to go buy XD I just though it was a weird coincidence worth sharing!

Is there any easier way to make vintage curls from natural curly hair than straighten hair and make curls again?
Beth Altmann (1 year ago)
I also feel inspired watching this , I remember my mother always had her hair done by the time we woke up , she was dressed in the 1940’s 1950’s style and always looked classy. Thankyou for taking the time to do this 😊

Hi! What should I do to help maintain my curls through high humidity? I live in central Florida and I'm going to Epcot for Dapper Day on Sunday and I know this is very last minute but it did not occur to me to ask until now, I am terribly sorry! Please help if you can!!!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Florida is definitely tough on curls! I would say either layer on the hairspray, ORRR you could get one of those inivisible hair nets from Sally Beauty supply (or similar). They preserve the look of the curled hair and are seriously unnoticeable! I think I'll be doing that my next time down there!
Wartime Sisters (1 year ago)
I just got some of those pillow curlers and setting foam from watching your tutorial. I've had okay luck with pin curls, but my hair is so thick, it takes freaking forever. Hopefully, this will work better! Wish me luck!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Yayyy you got this!!

I have a border collie lab mix and he does the same damn thing with pillows and blankets. I have no idea what that's about.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Right??!! Maybe it's like a nesting thing? Everyone always thinks he's humping them and I have to be like I PROMISE HE'S NOT, he just really HATES PILLOWS 😂😂
Rebecca Carroll (1 year ago)
Trying this hairdo for St.Patty's day. Going out in the morning with mom for a full Irish breakfast soo... why not? haha. Progress photos to follow on Instagram. My hair is the straightest hair ever so we'll see how this goes, wish me luck everyone!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Yay!!! Hehehe here's some Irish luck!

Do you think this would look good on coloured hair? Mine is purple at the ends, and I want to do this but I don’t know if it will look good on coloured hair.
LonelytheToucan (1 year ago)
The Pinup Companion Thank you!! I’ll be sure to try it out!
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Ooo YES. I love vintage hair with different colors!
Olivia (1 year ago)
Just curious, how many rollers did you use in this video?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I'm not exactly sure, it varies from time to time, but I'd say around 16-18
kemmli (1 year ago)
..... okay, my biggest problem is SLEEPING WITH THE CURLS, how do you even do that?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Hahaha you get used to it! Pillow rollers are much comfier to sleep in than foam. And if it helps you can also use a hair scarf and wrap your head so it's less pressure on the rollers when you're laying on them! 😊
Ferretocious (1 year ago)
I'm glad you teleported here from the 40's and figured out how to work these modern gizmos and post this! :) Your hair looks aMAZING!!!!

How many roller do you typically use at one time? I want to order some but have no idea how many to get
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I'm not sure exactly how many but I'd say approximately 20!
Kim` Starkey (1 year ago)
If you wouldn't talk so much and have all the things u think are funny, it would be a real "tutorial" instead of all about you! Filming "sneezing" really? Next time I want a tutorial, it won't be yours....

I just recently purchased these pillow rollers.. I'm terrible at doing hair... Here is hoping after watching your tutorial...I can exact similar results!... Your hair is gorgeous ❤️
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Yay! good luck you can do eeeeet! 😊
angpetu (1 year ago)
I've ordered the pillow rollers and the motions foam wrap as I'm going to try this myself. I have pretty long hair but curling it makes it shorter anyways, I really want to emulate Vivien Leigh in GWTW & Waterloo Bridge as planning to do cosplays of both Scarlett & Myra so the hair is perfect :) thanks for a fun video & tutorial, your hair looks gorgeous.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
+Laura Dawson Yay love it!!! If these don't work for you I would try foam rollers! Let me know how it turns out, I'm curious how they are with longer hair 😊❤️❤️❤️
mortygal (1 year ago)
OK rewatching for a refresher. I am scared to death of the brush out though. My hair is so thick and coarse that when I do brush out like you do it's a big poof and some of the curls are more frizzy than anything else. I will brush the curls lightly one by one but then it doesn't look as vintage like as yours. Any recommendations as to the type of brush or what to do?
mortygal (1 year ago)
The Pinup Companion thank you for the advise. I do the setting spray but i will try the pomade on my next go round 😊
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Are you using a setting lotion/spray? A lot of times that can help with taming the frizz while brushing it out. Also you could try using pomade, which does essentially the same thing. You just run it through your curls before or after brushing them and it gives them a shine and should help with any frizz! ❤️❤️

Elizabeth Morgan (1 year ago)
Your hair is beautiful!! Love those curls and waves. Seeing her pics, my mom was so gorgeous in the 1940's. So was my dad! We have pics of him wearing his suits and Fedora hats. They both looked amazing. In elementary school, Mom rolled my hair on little rags that she tied and I have pics of my hair looking like yours when I was growing up. It is a distinctly feminine style and so beautiful. It makes me sad to see women today downplaying their looks, going out is slouchy, don't care clothes with their poor hair hanging like a mop. Bring back glamour!!
Colombiana Vero (5 months ago)
+Rachel Maksy agree.. we dont have that much time anymore but when I have a little time I like to put in the effort
Linoa Heartilly (10 months ago)
true, we shouldn't forget that it was pretty much their "duty" to be classy and beautiful at all times. Not saying doing this today is stupid or shallow, I actually quite like it and might try this style myself :) but there's no reason to bash women who don't put "much" effort into their appearance today, people just do what they want and if you don't appreciate being judged for your look, criticizing others for theirs isn't the smartest move.
L. Au (1 year ago)
because most women have better things to do and have different priorities.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Aww that's so so sweet! ❤️ I can understand today's fashion, it's hard to make the time to do this hair. Some days I can't be bothered haha, especially for workin' women!
Lori Petrick (1 year ago)
Just did a practice run using pillow rollers.....SUCCESS!! Way easier to sleep in than regular rollers., which I was forced to use as a kid, by my grandmother. Attending a 40's Ball next weekend and love this style.
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Lori Petrick Exactly!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Shelley Carr (1 year ago)

Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Hahaha yes!! It's so hard to find though waah, I always have to order online!
Lucie Lovick (1 year ago)
Do you have to use a setting lotion, or could you just do this with wet hair???
Lucie Lovick (1 year ago)
Thank you so much!!! Love your videos, your style is everything I wish I could wear!!!! 😂😊
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
You could do it on wet/damp hair for sure! My hair is just really thick and doesn't dry if I do that, so the setting lotions helps mold the curls and keep them curled longer ❤️

So I know you don't have short hair(or it doesn't look like it), but do you think you could ever do some hair styling for people with short hair? I always want to try your styles, but my hair is just too short. Or how to adapt these styles for short hair?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
Thank you for the suggestion!! I would love to do that! And one for longer hair too!
Vicki Marie (1 year ago)
my female pug does this too (the pillows) but she doesn't stop there, she gets them on the floor and keeps doing that and yelling at them... and then I come in and yell at her because I can never have decorative pillows out.. she's always attacking them. grr fur babies lol.
Vicki Marie (1 year ago)
Yeah, she's my silly baby. I have her.. she's a black and white pug and her name is Fiona and then we have our "old man" Farley- he's a English bulldog. Gotta love fur babies <3

Are these animal cruelty free products o.o
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I'm not sure about the Motions foaming wrap being cruelty free (they don't have a website or anything), but I'm assuming the rollers are, considering they're just foam, wire, and cotton 😊
Cela Jony (1 year ago)
If only my hair wasn't so thick...
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
My hair is pretty thick too! Which is why I can't do a wetset like some people, it would never dry 😂😂
ShakespeareDoomsday (1 year ago)
What advice do you have for super long hair (mine is long enough to occasionally sit on)? Also, would this work for hair that is super thick and abundant?
Rachel Maksy (1 year ago)
I would recommend trying foam rollers! pillow rollers are great but don't do that well under too much weight (they start to slip out). Foam rollers come with a plastic clasp that keeps them secure! 😊
Mountain Girl (1 year ago)
Thank you! I bought the Conair Pillow Curlers like 4 years ago and used them maybe 6 times!! Mostly because I really didn't know how to use them!! But now I do!! So thank you very much!!
