Happy Tuesday guys! and happy tutorial number two:) I really love this style and am excited about posting it and hearing what you think, because it feels really classic to me and yet the size of these victory babies is pretty fun and extreme! Plus who doesn't like a little flower action? Okay lets get to it:
And there we have it! Big monster victory rolls in all their glory, with a curly bunch of fun at the nape of your neck. What'a you think? Wanna give it a try? I like to do these tutorials when I have errands to run or a date to go on, because I love the funny looks I get from kids.haha Okay well we'd better get on to the tutorial, because this ones a bit more complex and you know how I like to be thorough in my hairstyle explanations! K here we go:
- boar bristled teasing comb
- 1" curling iron
- bobby pins
- strong hold hairspray
- a hair-tie
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. Going back to the smaller side first, comb your hair up and over the other side and then spritz with some hairspray once its smooth.
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 curl 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 pins holding your hair down this time from ear to ear, and spray the back of your head with hairspray. Almost done! :) Next you're gonna 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!
Phew! That was probably the most explanation I've Ever had for a hair tutorial, but not only are these retro tutorials much more complex but this one in particular has lots of steps, and you know how I hate hate posting incomplete tutorials! So the words go on:) Its kinda fun though huh? The most important thing I can't stress enough this week though is that practice makes perfect and don't get discouraged!
Oh and one last thing: If you're not the biggest fan of hairstyle weeks, there are a few bonus posts coming this week that are pretty exciting, so be on the lookout!
Thanks for visiting today, and have a great rest of your day!
