It’s time for a guide on how to do victory rolls, and create that perfect rockabilly hair. It takes practice and a lot of it too. So be patient and try again if it doesn’t work out the first time.
But here is my guide for creating victory rolls
You will need:
– Hair below shoulder length
– A rat tail comb or a teasing brush
– A volumizing dry shampoo (optional)
– Hairpins, preferably the shorter ones
How I do my victory rolls:
Start by parting your hair, I section my hair at the tip of my ears and all the way up to the crown.You may need to adjust the amount of hair to use, depending on your hair thickness and length.
Now it’s time to start teasing! I use a regular teasing brush.
Tease your hair air at the crown of your head, and tease it good. You will need a good tease to get long lasting victory rolls.
I like to add some extra volume to my victory rolls, and I do that by adding some dry shampoo.
Spray the dry shampoo at the roots of the hair you have sectioned.
Now it’s time to start sculpting the victory rolls, to do that, you wrap the tip of the hair you have sectioned around two fingers.
Keep rolling until you have about 15 cm (6 inches) left.
Remove your hair from your fingers, and continue rolling the hair in a loop towards the crown of your head.
Fasten your victory roll with a hairpin or two if needed,
Adjust your victory roll, and add an extra pin if needed.
Now on to the next victory roll. Here I part my hair the same way as before, but since I part my hair to the left I also include my bangs.
Now it’s time to tease some more. Tease so you get a good bump in the front, and concentrate the teasing mainly in the front, so your bangs get a good tease.
You will look all kinds of ridiculous while doing it.
Once the teasing is done, you can add some dry shampoo for more volume and hold.
Repeat the procedure from before. Wrap your hair around your fingers and start rolling.
Create a loop and slowly roll your victory roll towards your crown.
Do not tighten the victory roll too much, and make sure you still get that bump in the front.
Fasten the victory roll with a hairpin.
Adjust your victory roll, and try to match the victory rolls, and make them as aligned as possible. And then your result should look somewhat like this.
Aaaaand you are done and ready to rock that rockabilly hair!
