How to Create Victory Rolls

Victory rolls in hair were a staple in 40s fashion, in an era where you wouldn’t think style could prevail with people struggling with more important matters. As you may know, women being fashionable was even promoted by governments in order to show that ladies were staying strong while the war was going on. Victory rolls came out of those efforts.

Like a lot of 40s fashion, Victory rolls continue to inspire looks even today. So let’s take a look at how to make this fantastic look! It’s a little hard at first but if you’re willing to give it some practice, it’s going to pay off in a big way for a nice updo.

What You’ll Need: 

  • Brush/comb
  • Bobby Pins
  • Hair spray (to help hold the look)
  • Dry Shampoo (to also help hold if your hair is too fine/clean for bobby pins to hold on their own).
