The 7 Best Overnight Hair Curlers

By Emily Estep

Creating bouncy, long-lasting curls without heat is totally possible: you just need a set of great heatless curlers. But without heat, it can take a while for your curls to set, so styling while you sleep is ideal (isn't that the dream?). Luckily, the best overnight hair curlers are super comfortable to sleep in — and aside from saving your hair from heat damage they also save you time in the morning.

When looking for the ultimate set of overnight curlers, your number one priority should be comfort. Don't kid yourself, rigid silicone and poking wires will definitely start to bother you throughout the night. Some curling sets are made with memory foam for extra comfort, and there are even sets with soft satin covers. Any overnight curlers that have wires should be thoroughly covered with a thick layer of foam, so it doesn't feel like you're sleeping on a metal pillow.

You also need to think about your hair length and the type of curls you want to create. If you have long hair, you're going to either need a lot of curlers or really big curlers. Want loose, bouncy waves? Opt for big rollers. Ringlet curls? This one's easy — pick up a set of small rollers. Or hey, if you want to invest in a set that can make any type of curl, find a set with multiple sizes.

These overnight curling sets are some of the most comfortable and easiest to use out there.

1. A Huge Pack Of Curling Rods In A Range Of Sizes

2. These Flexible Curlers That Work On Any Hair Type

"I have very fine straight hair that does not hold a curl," one reviewer says, while another writes, "I have curly hair to start but it frizzes." Both gave these hair curlers a five-star rating. They're made from soft sponges and have a flexible wire inside, so you can wrap your strands dependent on your hair type and sleep comfortably while the curls set. They come in a pack of 30, so no matter how thick your hair is, you'll always have enough.

3. Tight Curlers That Make It Easy To Create Ringlets

These small curlers create tight, corkscrew-shaped curls and work especially well for shorter hair. They're split into two categories, blue and green, with each color twisting in its own direction. Varying the direction of your curls does a better job of mimicking a natural curl pattern, so the effect is effortless ringlets.

4. These Ultra-Comfortable Hair Curlers That Are Filled With Memory Foam

These sleep curlers are made with memory foam at their core, making them so comfortable to sleep in you might forget you're wearing them. They also have an absorbent material that soaks up excess moisture, so you can pop them in shortly after you've taken a shower.

5. A Set Of Rollers You Can Stack To Customize Your Look

These curling flutes are perfect for anyone with long hair, because you can connect them to each other to create even longer curlers. The set also comes with lightweight fabric sleeves that both prevent the curlers from falling out and keep your hair from snagging while you're sleeping.

6. Smooth Foam Rollers That Are Covered In Plush Satin

This enormous pack of foam rollers (seriously — there are more than 40 rollers in it), was designed with sleep in mind. The rollers are covered in satin that's gentle on the hair and scalp and keeps your curls extra soft and smooth. They're ideal for smaller curls and are meant to be used with only about an inch of hair.

7. A 24-Pack Of Foam Rollers That Feel Like Tiny Pillows

These overnight rollers are designed to be as soft as pillows, so they won't disrupt your beauty sleep. It's safe to use them on either wet or dry hair, and their gentle nature minimizes hair breakage throughout the night. And though they're super comfortable, a firm wire inside keeps them in place while you get your Zzz's.
