No Dyson Airwrap? These rollers can give you bouncy curls for way less — they're down to just $23

Style your hair on the cheap with this old-school find from Conair, backed by over 13,000 five-star reviews.

The Dyson Airwrap is one of the hottest things in hair. If you’re new to the do-it-all tool, it's essentially a hair styler that can deliver everything from a smooth blowout to voluminous curls. It's a five-time Allure Beauty Award winner, and it can be revolutionary once you get the hang of it. But it's also $600, and it's constantly selling out. If you can't get your hands on an Airwrap or justify the splurge, no worries. Hot rollers can give you bouncy, shiny curls for a fraction of the price. Take the Conair Compact Multi-Size Hot Rollers, for example. They’re down to $23 from Amazon and deliver some serious volume.

This set of rollers includes three different sizes for more natural-looking curls.

Why is this a good deal?

Not only are these Conair rollers hundreds of dollars less than the Dyson Airwrap, they're 15% off on Amazon. They're also a bargain compared with heading to the salon for a blowout or special-event curls — something that can set you back $50 a pop (or much more, depending on where you go and what you want).

Why do I need this?

Hot rollers are ideal for crafting beautiful curls and waves without too much effort. If you're new to rollers, don't let them intimidate you — they're easy to use. They heat up in about 85 seconds, and the red light on the case will light up when they're ready to use. Then you roll up small sections of your hair and secure the rollers with a pin. Let them cool, then gently remove them to reveal big, bouncy curls.

This Conair set includes 20 hot rollers in three sizes so you can get the look you want. Use the smaller rollers for tighter curls and the larger ones for looser waves. The set also comes with 20 color-coded clips to keep your rollers in place (no, they won't leave dents in your hair). Each roller has an easy-roll grip to provide a secure hold that won't leave you with a tangled mess.

Don't be intimated — hot rollers are simple to use once you get the hang of them. (Amazon)

Pro tip: Pop these rollers in your hair when you start getting ready for your day, and by the time you’re ready to go, they’ll be ready to come out. If you hate standing around your bathroom every day with a curling wand in your hand, these are for you.

What reviewers say

These rollers have more than 13,000 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers.

One five-star reviewer said the rollers "are super simple to use and nice and lightweight. I couldn’t be happier with them. The curl holds great as well, giving lots of volume to your hair."

"This product is fantastic," another shopper raved. "I have a lot of long (mid-back length), medium thickness, wavy hair. Curling irons or wands would only keep my hair curled for a few hours at most. These heated curlers keep my hair extra curly for an entire day and into the night! They are easy to use and heat up very fast."

A third fan had this tip: "This roller set works like the old hot rollers and clips of the past, very basic. There are no controls so the longer it is plugged in (with the lid closed) the hotter the rollers get. Ouch! ... They do work — they curl and smooth my hair. So, no complaints."

All of the hair clips and rollers can be stored inside the compact case to keep your bathroom tidy.
