What size rollers are required?

Hello All,

Here is a photo if Tracee Ellis Ross at last week's NAACP Image Award Ceremony. Her hair is so georgeous. It appears that she has roller set her 3B hair. Are there any professional stylists here who may be able to determine what size rollers were used on her shoulder length hair to acheive this look? Id like to give roller setting a try?
Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing one of two techniques could have been used on her hair. It was either blown out and curled with a bumper sized iron. Or her stylist used huge rollers, like the purple or grey ones to set her hair then blew some of tightness out with a round brush, like the Dominican blowout?

I have similar hair to her (a little different curl pattern though) and I get that look with either brushing very wet hair straight-ish with setting lotion, wrapping on the largest size roller possible with good tension, sitting under the hooded dryer, then removing the rollers and brushing and blow drying dry hair, or by pressing with a pressing comb and then curling the ends with an iron of some kind, or using a straightening iron and curling the ends around it. Pretty much what Curlilocs said.

Hi Ladies. Thank you both.
When you say the largest size rollers, could you let me know the actual size inches to give the roller set a try. I would think that using the largest ones I have seen (about 2" in diameter) would make the hair more straight and not as curly as in the photo of Tracee. But then I am only guessing.

Looking for more responses please. Thanks again.
