I’ve been around the web and I’ve seen different ways for us to roll our hair minus store-bought rollers or curling irons. You can pin curl or flat pin curl (yes there is a difference) , rag curl, foil curl , or you can make some curlers by sewing or crochet a set and go to it.
Me, I like rollers/curlers, didn’t own any at the moment, and decided yesterday that by golly I was going to have some; the thing is though I wanted something quick that was no sew because I didn’t feel like taking out the sewing machine …So here you have it, panty hose (nylon stocking)
Step 1: Gathering Supplies
- You'll Need
- hose (used and washed is fine even if there was a small snag) you get 4 rollers per, ya ken? You do the math on how many you’d like.
- polyfill (or stuffing from old pillow)
- cap toTresemme moose (if you have it, to help measure stuffing)
Step 2: Cut
Cut legs off hose so you have two long tubes
Step 3: Cut Again
Cut each leg into 2 equal lengths
Step 4: Tie the Knot
Tie knot about 1 and 1/2 inch from one end, leaving other end open for now
Step 5: Get Filling Ready
Take handful of pillow filling to stuff your curler. I use the lid from my Tresemme mousse to measure the correct amount, I stuff that til it won't stuff any more and that's the correct amount. If you don't have a cap for the mousse anymore just eyeball it.
Step 6: Stuff
Stuff your stocking with the filling. It should be the size of a medium potato.
Step 7: Tie Another Knot
Tie a loose knot to hold your stuffing in like this for bigger curls. Feel free to use a permanent marker and put a smilie face on it.
Step 8: Use

Step 9: Admire
And come morning you'll have some lovely locks! Even if it's so bright before coffee that you have to wear shades like I did
