How to Get Big Retro Curls For Your Wedding

From Mad Men to Boardwalk Empire, big retro curls are back in a big way. To do this look for your big day, try using the same products your mom and grandmother probably used–hot rollers. The newest models have frizz-fighting technology and longer-lasting results. Check out our picks below to score chic old-school waves and curls.

We like: T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers, $99,

For a glamorous, timeless look, large hot rollers can give you the big, bouncy curls of your dreams. Getting your hair done is fast and easy with this set–it heats up in three minutes. Place the smaller rollers around your face, and use the larger ones in the back where hair is longer. Once they’re set and taken out, lightly comb through curls with your fingers.

We like: Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray, $28,

To seal in the style and keep frizz at bay, use a strong-hold hairspray to set everything. For added oomph, choose one that also thickens hair to emphasize curls. Flip hair upside down and spray the underside for extra volume, and then lock in curls by spraying 10-12 inches away from your head.
