Start front and center; you're going to begin with big sections of hair and work your way down. Grab the hair at the top and front of your head, including the front and center of your hair on down the sides to about the position of your temples. Use a hairbrush or comb to help you smooth out these strands and separate them from the rest of your hair. Twist this hair into a loose French twist style, just to get it out of the way, and secure it with a hair clip on the top of your head.
Move on down the road to the middle portion of your hair, just above your ears and around the back. Pull this hair into a ponytail at the back of your head, twist it upwards and secure it with a clip.
Pick up the slack; in this case, the rest of your hair that isn't already held by a clip. Pull up the hair at the base of your neck and twist it upwards into a clip as well. You'll use the three main sections you just created as the foundation of your hot roller style; from here on out, you'll style one section at a time.
Go back up to the top, to the first section you made. Unclip the hair and let it hang down, then lift inch-wide, thin sections of your hair. Wrap them around the rollers. Continue to pull out smaller sections like this, one at a time, until you have put rollers in this whole first main section of your hair. Repeat this step with the middle and bottom sections as well.
