- 12 Rollers
- 1 Inch- 12 rollers
- Rollers are 5 Inch long
- Indicating light
- Small teeth on the rollers for fine grip
- Has on off switch
- Not perfect for short or medium hair
- Not convenient for kinky curls or spirals
The Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers (Long Style Set) by Calista Tools has 12 hot rollers of 1 Inch diameter and 5 Inch length. All the hot rollers are designed to use on long hair and to make long hairstyles like beachy waves, loose waves, long spirals and body waves. These 12 long style roller set will be enough to cover all your hair and you don’t need to roll one part of the hair and wait for the other one.
There is indicating light on the top of the waver called temperature indicator for letting you know whether the device is ready for curling or not. When the LOW-temperature setting is activated, this black temperature indicator turns red. If you activate HIGH-temperature setting then your black indicator on the top of the waver will turn into white. This is a signal for you to remind that the rollers are hot enough to use. This signal also lets you know that the temperature you have selected is high or low.
All the 12 rollers of Calista Tools Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers (Long Set) has small teeth on the roller surface. These small teeth assist the rollers in holding your hair and so your hair cannot fall apart in any way. Some cheap rollers in the market also use teeth on the roller surface for perfect hold but the teeth are long that your hair will get caught or trapped in them and it will be tough for you to unlock them. But the teeth on these Calista Hot Wavers Heated Rollers are so small that your hair will not get trapped and at the same time, you will get a fine grip.
This hot roller model by Calista has switches named ON and OFF. Usually, hot rollers are used from direct power from the socket but as this set has ON/OFF switch so you do not need to worry about any accident. You can keep this roller fixed in the position and whenever you need to use it you can switch on the waver.
As this roller set is designed for long hair so this is obvious that you will not be benefitted if you use this hot roller in your short hair. If you try to use this set in your short hair then you will come to pass adding a little volume only. But this hot roller set can work on average if you have medium hair because you can use 1 Inch for curling medium hair but it will create big waves in medium hair.
The rollers are on 1 Inch diameter and call form long hairdos. This roller set is not recommended to people who need kinky curls or perfect spirals. These rollers can only hold long curls, if you try to create small spirals then you can never get your desired one by this hot roller set.
This hot roller set is designed for long hair and so short hair cannot be benefitted by these. If you have short hair then you can go for Calista Tools Ion Hot Rollers (Short Style Set) to form better curls. Small spirals or kinky hairdos can also be done with the Short Style Set of Ion Hot Rollers by Calista.

- Variable heat settings
- Heating element inside the rollers
- Takes time to heat up
The most radical change that makes Calista Tool Hot Waver Heated Hair Rollers (Long Set) distinctive and exclusive is the Dual Heat settings. Typically hot rollers have one built-in temperature that cannot be changed accordingly people who have thin hair and people who have coarse or thick hair uses the same temperature. It is known to all that thin hair needs less temperature where coarse or thick hair needs a high temperature for curling. If thin hair is provided excessive heat then hair can be damaged and if thick or coarse hair is provided less heat then you cannot get your desired curls or your curls will fall quickly. But this heated rollers by Calista has two different temperature settings for thin and thick hair.
- Thin Hair: Low Temperature (Approximately 200 degree Celsius)
- Thick hair: High Temperature (Approximately 300 to 400 degree Celsius)
So if you have thick or coarse that is tough to curl then you can go for high temperature and if you have thin hair then you can select low temperature.
Calista Hot Wavers Long Style Set has PTC heating element inside the roller. Positive Temperature Coefficient known as PTC heater is included in every roller so that your hair gets enough heat to curl. The job of PTC heater is to provide sufficient to the rollers and to retain heat properly so that the rollers remain hot for so long. PTC heater also aids in the transfer of an adequate amount of heat (the PTC heater avoid transferring extreme heat that can burn your hair and also do not deliver less heat that cannot provide you perfect curls.)
The only complaint about Calista Tools Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers (Long Set) is it takes the time to get hot. Where the other hot rollers set by Calista gets hot in a minute, this hot roller set takes 5 to 15 minutes to get hot. As there are high and low-temperature settings for different type of hair so it takes different time to get hot.
- Low temperature: 5 minutes approximately
- High temperature: 10-15 minutes approximately
If you activate LOW-temperature settings then your device will be heated up in no more than 5 minutes. But if you are going to the HIGH-temperature settings then you will need to wait for 10 to 15 minutes for getting the rollers hot. It may seem lengthy process.
These hot rollers have dual temperature and that may be a reason for the lengthy process of heating up. Though the LOW-temperature setting needs less time for getting hot, the HIGH-temperature setting may need some additional time to get hot.

- 12 butterfly clips
- Base holds 12 rollers at once
- Zippered travel case
- Clips are not strong
- Does not provide gloves
Calista Tools Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers (Long Style Set) offers 12 butterfly clips for holding 12 heated rollers.

Plastic clips do not hurt your body parts.
The base of this hot roller set can hold all of the 12 rollers together. Usually, other hot roller’s base can only hold 6 rollers and so you cannot get all the rollers heated up at once. In that case, you need to make two parts of your hair and roll one part of your hair for forming curls. Your other part remains unrolled as the other rollers are not hot yet. But with this wavers set you can heat up all of the 12 rollers at once and can save your time and energy by rolling up your full hair together.

As the device has no dual voltage so you can only travel within the USA with it.
The clips of this hot rollers set flimsy and cannot hold curls perfectly. These breakable clips are not good for long-term use. If you activate the HIGH-temperature settings then the hot rollers get too much hot which can burn your hand. You need to wear gloves for keeping your hands safe from the disproportionate heat.
The clips are a little bit flimsy and break quickly. If you do not feel comfortable with the clips then you can purchase clips separately as per your choice from the shop.

- Uses heater inside the rollers
- Has different temperature settings
- Gets too much hot
The rollers have a heater inside them and so the base charger does not get heated up. There is less chance of any accident with the base charger station because they do not provide heat, they only provide power and as the rollers have a heating element inside so the rollers grab power and get heated up by that.
The rollers are safe because there is no chance of burning your hair by these. This hot roller set has 2 different temperature settings and it ensures that your thin hair gets less heat and thick hair gets high heat for making superior curls all over your head.
The rollers of the Calista Tools Hot Waver Heated Hair Rollers (Long Set) gets too much hot when the HIGH-temperature setting is turned on. As it takes 10-15 minutes to heat up the rollers get 300-400 degree Celsius hot. You need to wear gloves (not provided with the product) for keeping your hands safe.
If you activate HIGH temperature then the roller get too much hot that you cannot hold them. It may take 10-15 minutes and you have to be careful about the heat. The white light indicator will light up and try to use the rollers after 2-4 minutes later to the signal.

Durability, warranty, and other issues
- Rollers are of 1-inch diameter and 5 Inch long
- Easy to operate
- 2 years warranty
- Provides short clips
- Not portable
The rollers of Calista Tools Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers are perfect for long hair and so the diameter is 1 Inch. You can select these wavers for long hairstyles like beachy waves, loose waves, and long spirals and also in adding body to the hair. The rollers are 5 Inch long for long hairdos. You have to keep in mind that the more hair you place on a single roller, the looser the curl will be. If you put less hair in a roller then you will get a tight curl.
The Hot Wavers Heated Hair Rollers by Calista is an economic hot roller set. Comparing to rollers of other brands, these rollers are cheaper. No other model will provide you this hi-tech set of 12 rollers in such reasonable price. The brand also gives you a warranty of 2 years which definitely tells you about the quality and worth of this model. In this 2 years if you find any problem regarding the rollers set then you can make a complaint and replace your product.
This hot roller set is easy to operate because it has on/off switch and dual temperature settings. Other than that, these hot rollers set also has a base charger that has 12 ionic roller stations. So you can heat-up all your rollers at once by switching on the waver. You do not need to wait
The complaint about the clips still remains as the clips are shorter in length and width. As the rollers are of long size the clips should also be of long size. But the 12 clips provided with this hot roller set is short and cannot hold the curls properly. The other fact that can irritate you is the size of the hot roller set. This hot roller set has a charger base that holds 12 rollers with 12 clips together and so the set looks large. This large set is not portable to take everywhere.
The difficulty regarding the clips can be solved by purchasing your desired size clips individually from the market. This roller set is not portable and so an alternative to this set, you can use Calista Tools Ion Hot Rollers (Long Style) which is a handy device.
Sectional Rating and Comment: 3.5/5, regrettably not portable
People who travel much should not pick up this hot roller set because it does not have dual voltage and is not portable. Women having short hair should avoid using this hair tool.
