Before telling you how to do victory rolls, we’d like to warn you that this is a very time and product consuming hairstyle. You should be equipped with hairspray, good gel, bobby pins, and curly iron. Plus, getting this type of pin up hair isn’t the easiest task. Yet, everything comes with practice, right? So here are the basics that will help you to achieve the oomphy style. Don’t worry; we’ve got a little victory rolls tutorial for various cuts and textures.

  1. To create the classic victory rolls hairstyle, you need to take a piece of hair from one side of your head, create a loop, and roll it from the ends, securing everything with pins. This idea works best for one-length cuts with no layers.
  2. There’s also an idea for ladies with layered hair. It’s better to curl your hair before styling. To achieve victory rolls hair, you need to create a loop in the place you want your roll to sit and then tuck the hair (shorter layers) that is left inside the loop.
  3. For custom sized rolls, you can go for thumb wrap method. Just wrap some pieces of hair around your thumb, pinching it with your other hand. Then roll it, regulating the size and shape of the rolls.
  4. If you’re interested in the modern version of rolled hairstyle, make sure you’re not short of time. Start by backcombing your hair section by section, teasing each layer and smoothing out its surface but without brushing it. Roll a section at the base and roll it at the front, setting the contemporary idea of ’50s hair style with lots of bobby pins and a coat of hairspray.
