Unroll the rollers, starting with the lower ones at the back before moving upward. Tuck the hair under and pin the curls into place as you unroll, using long bobby pins so you can insert the pin right into the barrel of the curl. Backcomb the roots before pinning. Work right round the head, unrolling a single layer of rollers.
