Tutorial: How To Get Vintage Victory Rolls in 7 Simple Steps
Victory rolls are a vintage women’s hairstyle that was originally popular in the 1940s and 1950s. This look features voluminous pinned ‘rolls’ that frame the face, and it was aptly named after the aerobatic victory manoeuvre of fighter planes doing loop-the-loops during this timeframe. Nowadays, the look is popular with lovers of all things vintage and fancy dress fans alike.
Do you love the look, or would like to learn how to style your own victory rolls? You can follow our step-by-step guide below and claim victory (sorry, we had to) over this quirky hairstyle.
Prep And Curl
Spritz your entire head with a heat protectant (like the TRESemmé Heat Defence Spray) and then use a curling wand or tong to loosely wave the hair.
The waves will give the hair more “bend” and help with creating your victory rolls.
Next, divide the hair from ear to ear using the crown as a centre point.
Create A Side Parting
Taking the top section, create a side parting so that you have more hair on one side than the other.
Hair hack: Take the bigger section and pin the hair approximately one inch parallel to the parting. This will help secure the hair and make it easier for you to create your victory rolls.
If you have naturally fine or flat hair, try backcombing your hair that will eventually form the roll, before lightly smoothing with a brush. This will give volume to the victory roll later on!
Wrap the hair around your fingers and roll inwards towards the parting. Secure with pins by placing them inside the roll where they will be hidden.
Repeat steps 3-5 on the other side, pinning your hair in place.
Set With Hairspray
You now have your perfect victory rolls! Set the look in place with a spritz of the TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray to ensure your style lasts, no matter how much you boogie!
And you’re all done! See how fabulous you look in retro victory rolls?
