Calista Tools Set of 12 Ion Hot Rollers with Clips & Travel Bag
Hair with body!
I love the curlers! I wish I had these years ago. My hair is short and fine, but the curlers give my hair so much body. The curlers are quicker than a curling iron; they save me time.

These worked as well as the ones I already had. Not like the preview said it would work great with fine long hair and it did seem to work great on the model. Was very excited to give these a try but disappointed and sent back for a refund

If you have medium to thick hair I am sure these rollers will be fantastic for you. I would recommend them to my friends with hair that will accept a heavy roller and probably a little longer in length. If I give my review from my own personal story, I didn't like them. I have fine blonde hair that almost touches my shoulders. The rollers are way too heavy for fine hair. You need product in your hair for them to work. If your hair is too clean or too fine all you will get is a little volume and shine, but not much curl. So before purchasing I would consider what your length and hair type is.
I was really looking forward to receiving the rollers. After trying them I am very disappointed. Not all the heating areas work. Had to move them around to other areas to heat up. Rollers wouldn't stay in and and when I tried to remove others they tangled. Will be returning.
I absolutely love these curlers, in fact I initally ordered the short set and when my hair grew longer I went back and ordered the long set. I have a lot of hair and the short set was just not enough anymore. I felt buying a complete set rather than additional sets of 4 was a better fit for me, since I am not sure which size I want and I use 20 out of 24 at least each time. Both sets of curlers fit either base so there is no restriction on which base you put them on when you are storing or heating them up and the clips are all the same so they can all be stored together. Once I curl my hair its good for at least 2 days sometimes 3.
Practice and patience for fast curls with hold
I've kept an eye on this product for a while but was concerned about some of the comments on the difficulty of use and inconsistent outcome. The original price was quite high so I've been patiently waiting for lower prices and easy pay. Bingo! I have below the shoulders fairly thick hair (layered# and have been using hot rollers for years. I generally have to buy more than one set so I can curl all my hair without having to remove and reheat curlers. NO MORE! I ordered the long rollers and I am able to get beautiful curls quickly - and usually use only 9 - 11 curlers. I thought I would need more clips - but I only need 1 clip per roller. I tried to use the curlers the way the Calista video does but it doesn't work for me. When I used the curlers in essentially the same way that I use my current rollers -- success!! It's super fast, superior and long lasting results #use a curling heat spray to keep the curls all day). Price & easy pay sealed the deal for me. Worth every penny. And the bonus is that it will be very easy to pack since the heating unit is quite flat and the rollers can be packed separately. I am so happy with this product.
Love at first curl!
I have always used my Chi flat iron to style my hair for spiral curls and they always ended up fading. Well, the Calista Curlers were SO different and I am in love! My curls were big and voluminous and staying BIG the whole night. I was told I looked like Farrah Fawcett! I was able to do curls going both ways rather than with the Chi I could only go one way. Please try... It's sooo worth it! The curlers also heat up SO fast from beginning to end. I used the big blue curlers.
I love these rollers! Very easy to use and the clips are the best - I can use them for holding hair back! Nice volume and hold all day! Thanks Calista!
Read and trust the reviews
Before I made this purchase, I did read the reviews. I left this item in my wish list because of too many complaints. But after trying another QVC Hot Rollers that failed as well, I decided to get it a try any way This item did exactly what the reviews warned. Not all the heating areas work. There was only one in my kit that never worked and yes I could have moved that one roller over to a working one in order to have it heated but how long before the others would stop working. So not worth the effort. I am so sad about it. I was so hoping this item would have worked for me as wonderful as it looks on the TV.

I bought this item thinking that I would give it a try and since QVC has such a great return policy, I would just send them back if I didn't like it. I tried it on clean hair and 1 day after shampooed hair, with and without hair spray, with and without mousse, using only 6 rollers, using all 12 rollers, curling only the ends and rollling my hair all the way, and I liked it in every way. It holds best using hairspray as shown on the youtube vid. My fine, flat hair held flowy curls all day long, and still retained shape the next day, which usually does not happen. I must say that I do love owning hair tools to play around, so adding one more is something that I am very likely to do. However, in this particular case, I did like how easy it was to shape my hair and how the rollers did not get scorching hot, also how fast the rollers shaped my hair; so I am keeping it and I will probably use it a lot more than my other "toys" to do my hair. One caveat: Even though it is compact enough for traveling, the unit only works with North American voltage, meaning it won't be possible to travel abroad with it. A big negative since we all want to look our best when we travel but we don't have much time to fix ourselves.
Curlers are too heavy and just do not curl hair. It is a painful experience just using them and a total waste of time.
did not work for me
I have used hot rollers for the past 30 yrs of my life, so I am no amateur when it comes to putting them up and dealing with them. These did not work, they tangled my hair so bad when I took them out and I couldn't keep them up with the clips. Again, I am not someone who doesn't know what they are doing with hot rollers,but these need to be redesigned in my opinion. I returned mine.
