This is the easiest way to create Victory Rolls – the cheat’s way!
Watch my victory rolls tutorial where I show you how to create this vintage victory Roll up-do in under five minutes no matter how long your hair is – and all you’ll need is two bobby pins and a couple of hair bobbles!
I love to wear my hair like this when i’m in the office and want to get my fringe out of my eyes. It’s also really great to wear when you’re a day away from hair wash time and want something a bit different to the usual ponytail! If your hair is on the thin side and you’re struggling to get the height you want – gently tease it with a comb or use a bit of dry shampoo at the roots to give it a bit more hold and roll away! You can use hairspray to secure your new vintage look but it should hold all on it’s own and last as long as you do.
If you’re feeling extra creative, why not use a hair doughnut to create your low chignon bun at the back for extra vintage chic, or even roll your hair underneath and add a hairnet – the victory roll world is your oyster with this one!
How to do victory rolls
1. Start by sectioning the front part of your hair on one side, ensuring that you go all the way down to your ear.
2. Working backwards and up, start to roll this section of hair. Starting halfway up, twist the hair inwards to create your first roll, creating height. Leave the end of your hair flat and secure with a bobby pin.
3. The rest of the section will blend into the rest of your hair if you’re wearing it down, or you can tie back for some extra vintage glamour.
4. Move on to the other side – you can leave your fringe down if you prefer. Use the same technique as before, securing with more pins if needed.
5. Pull the rest of your hair into a messy bun by capturing your hair in a low pony first with one bobble and then gathering it with another bobble over the top.
That’s literally it – a super glam hairstyle which only takes five minutes! Once you’ve mastered victory rolls, it’s time to start on your make-up! Check out the perfect vintage red lipstick and my vintage hair and make-up tutorialto really get that 1950s look.
