VICTORY......roll

Success! Ok well not that I haven't ever successfully put a victory roll in my hair but today is about the best victory rolls I have pulled off to date.  I also just had 4 inches taken off my hair (as well as touching up those roots boy did that need to get done).  So I have been try to figure out what I can do with it since it was cut on Thursday.  My timing may not have been the best as retrorama is coming up on the May 12 and well I bought a 40's  rayon dress to were do I was looking for a good 40's style for my hair to go with it and well what is more 40's than Victory rolls.  I always find them challenging as I am sure many of you do.  I will have to continue to practice so that I can repeat it when I want to.  Have a great weekend everyone.

  3. If only you could have visited York, Uk today we have been to a Vintage Fair and there were stalls with Hairdressers doing vintage up do's. They looked fab - I will post a picture tonight as I asked one lady if I could take a photo of the back of her head and she kindly obliged.

  11. Beautiful rolls and gor-ge-ous glasses! I have days were rolls are a breeze and others when I want to scream because they refuse to behave! I have found that giving my rolls a little spray of dry shampoo (like Suave or Tresamme) before I start rolling makes them more oomphy and makes bobby pins grip better. I also use Sebastian Hairspray to protect the finish rolls and help them withstand the elements!

  12. Tara thanks for the tip on the dry shampoo I will give that a shot as the next day I couldn't get the rolls right to save my life and well I think it was because I showered and the hair was too clean.
