Supplies needed:

Boar bristled teasing comb

1″ curling iron

Bobby pins

Strong hold hairspray

A hair-tie

Pin-up Victory Rolls

Step 1:

Start by drawing a curved line from temple to temple going upwards from one, and then back down to your other.

Tie back the bottom of your hair for later. Draw a straight dramatic side part and secure the larger section so it stays out of the way for the time being.

Separate the top third of your smaller side of hair and begin gently teasing the underside from the root to about the end with a boar bristled teasing brush.

Step 2: When you get to the bottom layer, tease the top of the hair. When you tease the larger side, you’ll do about 5 sections from top to bottom, and don’t forget again to tease the top side of the bottom section, not the underside!

Next, you’re going to draw a line of bobby pins on both sides about an inch in from your part to create a little base for the rolls. Go almost up to the front but not all the way.

Step 3:

Brush the ends of your section slightly to combine them better, then clamp the ends into your curling iron so the hair is going in an inwards direction: Roll all the way to your scalp, then by clamping and releasing repeatedly slowly release the iron from your hair while keeping the form of the roll.

Step 4:

Gently flatten the back of the roll and curls under to close off the back of the victory roll (since this is the more traditional look that we’re going for), making sure to bobby pin well! Shape the front of the roll as needed, make sure to bobby pin the roll from the inside out, and spray well with hairspray. Repeat step #3 and #4 with the other side, and your rolls are done!

Step 5:

Let down the back of your hair and comb it straight down and smooth. Pin another thick line of bobby pin holding your hair down this time from ear to ear and spray the back of your head with hairspray. Almost done!

Next, you’re going to curl the hair with a 1-inch curling iron, tease the top 4-6 inches or so of the topside of your curls, and start bunching them at the nape of your neck. Secure your fluffy bunch of curls well with bobby pins, spray well with some good hold spray, and add a little flower or bow to the side to finish it all off!

Modern Victory Roll

Step 3: Roll the section of hair down towards your head following the loop and pin in place. Place pins at the front and the back of your roll to keep it in place.

Step 4: Repeat on the other side of your head.

Step 5: Clean it up! Pin up any loose hair (or runaway bangs!) and style the remaining section of hair from the back however you want. Spritz some hairspray to keep it all in place.

When my hair was longer, I would wear the back section down and curl it slightly. Now that it is quite short, I rolled it into a tiny bun.
