Step 2: Start Wrapping Cables or Cord
Wrap cables or cord around the base of the roller. This is where someone would usually wrap thier hair.

As far as price goes, I got these second hand brand new for 5$ for the whole set (I want to about 18 pieces) however, in the manual I noticed that you can buy replacements for cheap.
